Grenada Area Code

+662 is the dialing code for Grenada.

Grenada in the Caribbean is also called Kryddön due to the large cultivations of mainly nutmeg. The former British colony ended up in the spotlight in 1983, when divisions within the country’s Marxist leadership led to military coups – which in turn prompted the United States to invade the country. The American invasion was followed by general elections and since 1984 there have been changes in power on democratic grounds.

Geography and climate

Grenada Area Code

Grenada lies 16 miles north of the Venezuelan coast and is the southernmost island within the archipelago of the Lovarts Islands (Windward Islands). These, in turn, make up the southern part of the Little Antilles in the Caribbean (Caribbean). Grenada also includes a number of islands within the Grenadines archipelago, notably Carriacou and Petite Martinique, north of the main island.

Grenada, which was christened by Spanish sailors after the Spanish city of Granada at the end of the 1400s, is also known as “Spice Island” because of its many nutmeg cultures. The inner parts of Grenada are rainforest and mountainous and the island, which is of volcanic origin, has been hit by earthquakes several times. Along the coasts are wide sandy beaches.

The climate is subtropical; the pass winds provide cool and ample rainfall. The rainy season falls between June and November. The country is on the outskirts of an area that is often haunted by hurricanes.
