Experience many favorite sites of Grenada on this excursion to a spice and herb garden, a historic rum distillery and ending at the beautiful Morne Rouge Beach with time to swim, or simply soak up the Caribbean sun.
Depart from the pier on an amazing half day journey of the senses, finding out for yourself why Grenada is known as the Spice Island, plus enjoying some beach time. Admire the red-tiled roofs of quaint St. George’s, Grenada’s capital on a scenic drive to Laura Spice Gardens. Upon arrival, take in the intoxicating aroma of cocoa, nutmeg, mace, pimento, cinnamon, vanilla, turmeric, cloves and more. Learn about their rich products that are exported for use in patent medicines and in the Caribbean for International cuisine. Some local medicinal plants have fun names, such as: Shado Bennie or Jump Up and Kiss Me.
Next, you will travel south for a guided tour of the Grenada Distillers. This historic factory produces exotic rum blends and other products from sugar cane, including three award-winning rums. Your nose will have a treat in the scents of the various rums as you discover the distillation process. There is an opportunity to sample and purchase these fine spirits, as well as pure molasses, at their gift shop.
Afterwards, reboard the bus for the drive to the sparkling Morne Rouge Beach. Here you spend an hour doing what you like. A lounge chair and refreshments are included in the cost of this tour. You can stroll along the sands, take a dip in the crystal-clear water, or simply bask in the golden sun before returning to the coach for the drive back to your SeaDream yacht.
