The capital city of Grenada, St. George's is the most picturesque harbour town in the West Indies. Its horseshoe-shaped harbour is believed to be the deep crater of a long-dead volcano. Some of the most charming Georgian colonial buildings in the Caribbean can be admired here, all those still standing despite a devastating hurricane in 1955. The steep, narrow hillside streets are filled with houses of ballast bricks, wrought-iron balconies, and sloping, red-tile roofs. Many of the pastel warehouses date from the 18th century. It is a nature lover's paradise, with many incredible, unspoiled national parks, kilometres of beaches and beautiful waterfalls. All water sports can be enjoyed, such as diving, swimming and hiking. There are also plenty of cultural attractions to visit, spice plantations, luxury resorts, great restaurants and wonderful shopping opportunities.
