Located in the heart of the Caribbean, Grenada is the most southerly of the Windward Islands. The island is of volcanic origin with a central line of mountains dominating the inland areas, and with extremely rich soil. Grenada’s interior is very mountainous with Mount St. Catherine being the highest at 840 m. Several small rivers with beautiful waterfalls flow into the sea from these mountains. The climate is tropical: hot and humid in the rainy season and cooled by the trade winds in the dry season. Grenada is on the southern edge of the hurricane belt.
