Following a tough encounter with a Category 4 Hurricane on September 7, 2004, Grenada has returned to being one of the most idyllic Caribbean vacation spots and a land of opportunity for investors. We at Grenada Broadcast invite you to share the beauty of this still relatively unspoiled paradise by taking a look at some of our incredible scenery and, eventually, spending a few days with us in the near future. Who knows? Like an increasing number of other persons from industrialized countries, you just may wind up as a permanent member of our Grenadian family.
Enjoy, and we hope to see you soon....
