Grenada is located south of St. Vincent and the Grenadines and just northwest of Trinidad and Tobago, in the Caribbean Sea. It’s a favourite spot for many when it comes to destination weddings and it could be the perfect option for you. If you want romance, a tropical climate and secluded locations, this is certainly the group of islands for you.
While there is a main island, Grenada is actually made up of six other smaller islands dotted around the Caribbean waters. These smaller islands offer the perfect seclusion for your private wedding ceremony and you are only a short ferry ride to the main island to celebrate your big day in style.
Why Grenada for Your Destination Wedding?
The island is also known as the “Spice Isle” because of the nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and many other spices from the area. You will smell them all as you walk around the island and it adds just another memorable part to your big day. Every time you smell cinnamon and ginger again, you will think back to your wedding day.
Beautiful, white sand beaches stretch for miles along the coasts of Grenada. And within the middle you get the luxurious rain forests to hike through. These could make the perfect backdrop to your wedding photos, especially when the monkeys surround you to add a unique element. If you prefer the water, there are bright and gorgeous coral reefs around the islands.
There is never a need to worry about the weather. The climate is never any colder than 77 degrees F the majority of the time, giving you warmth throughout the day.
One of the favourite beaches for weddings is Levera beach, because of its stunning beauty. It is the home of a number of waterfowl and turtle habitats and surrounded by sea cliffs slowly eroding. If you want to see the locals, Grand Anse Beach is one to add to your list to visit. The locals love celebrating love and marriage and they will make a fuss of you.
Ronde Island is one of the closes options if you want somewhere more secluded. However, Carriacou is the largest of the six smaller islands and offers some romantic spots for your destination wedding. It’s also not too far away from St. Kitts and Nevis if you want to take a day trip there for your honeymoon.
Famous Elements of Grenada
While the French did step foot on the island, it is the one Caribbean island that you will not see as much influence on. There are just a few French names and sounds to dialects.
The food is among the most popular aspects from the group of islands. “oildown” is a national dish and uses coconut milk, which is absorbed into the food. Anything can be cooked in the coconut milk, including breadfruit, flour dumplings and salted pigtail.
There are many folk tales that come from Grenada, especially the trickster spider Anancy. The character also originates in West African tales but is regularly used by the local people. The werewolf Ligaroo is also used in a number of folk tales.
