Known as the "Spice Isle," this sleepy island is teeming with nutmeg, cinnamon, and all things fragrant that grow in the verdant hills. The scent permeates the air and hits you the minute you step ashore.

The lush and misty rainforest, dramatic cliffs, and mountainous terrain are perfect for nature lovers wishing to explore.

And if your goal is to embrace one of the few Caribbean islands that still embodies a true West Indian spirit, we urge you to start in the bustling capital of St. George's for prime people-watching and spice shopping. Then it's off to a beach bar to tuck into a heady mix of rum, reggae, and a plate of just-grilled fresh fish. It's an experience few other islands can match these days.
