What To Expect
Discover the many exotic spices that abound here and have given the country its popular name. After all, Grenada isn't called the Spice Island for nothing! On this fun tour we take you to see the island's history with spices in this spice-rich region where nutmeg and cinnamon crops abound. Be lured by the inviting aroma of spicy herbs and come along to witness the making of delicious dishes ad tantalizing recipes made from the wide array of exotic spices found here.
Our first stop is at “De La Grenade Industries” a unique manufacturing plant responsible for making Grenada's most delicious selection of jams, sauces and exotic alcoholic beverages such as the award-winning Le Grenade Liqueur which is made following a 200 year old secret family formula. Here you'll have the chance to witness the making of their unique mouth watering products made from the most exotic spices. Le Grenade Industries are famous for manufacturing a unique line of nutmeg products made from the pericarp of the nutmeg, including the award-winning Morne Delice Nutmeg Jam, Jelly and Syrup. Take the opportunity to sample some of these Grenadine delicacies and leave with a little taste of the island in your mouth.
Many say that a trip to this Spice Isle isn't complete without a tour around the flourishing Bay Gardens. And this is exactly where we'll be taking you next for a relaxing afternoon experience in the most beautiful and tranquil atmosphere. These perfectly manicured gardens are a true reflection of a Grenadian tropical Eden, a nature lover's dream come true and a fascinating landscape to be admired at leisure. With over 20 acres of lush grounds, this garden strikes the perfect balance between beautifully manicured lawns and colorful flower beds with areas of natural habitats filled with ferns, wild flowers and even some lively fauna. Their large pond holds many lively species of colorful fish and their winding paths will provide you with a lifetime introduction to the most beautiful of Grenada's flora, or indeed of the entire Caribbean.
Then it's off to a wonderful “Herb & Spice Garden” to admire a wide collection of exotic spice trees and plants. Here you will find an array of weird and wonderful plants with unusual names like the zebapique, ven-ven and jump-up-and-kiss-me which have a track record of curing or at least relieving the locals' coughs, colds, rashes and many other ailments. Get an up-close view of those spices that don't grow on trees like the turmeric or saffron, ginger, the fragrant thyme and lemon grass.
A stop at “La Sagesse Nature Centre” for a refreshing afternoon tea is the ideal culmination of such a “spicey” day! Relax in La Sagesse's natural surroundings, blending the elegance and charm of an English country house with the lush tropical vegetation in this self-contained patch of serenity and seclusion.
