Come and rejoice with your southern Caribbean family at the Feast in Grenada! For the first time, UCG will host the Feast of Tabernacles on this beautiful and peaceful island. Brethren will be attending from the southern Caribbean islands, including Dominica, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, and Trinidad and Tobago. There will also be room for a limited number of transfers from other locations.
Grenada is not called “The Spice Isle” for nothing—in certain areas, you really can smell the nutmeg in the air. Other spices also grow in abundance, including cloves, bay leaf, allspice, ginger, and turmeric, to name a few. A variety of tropical fruits, as well as cocoa, is also grown. Grenada is a lush, green, mountainous island, with breathtaking views and waterfalls all over.
The Feast of Tabernacles will be held at the all-inclusive Grenadian by Rex Resorts (http://rexresorts.com/grenada/grenadian/ ), a five-minute ride from the Maurice Bishop International Airport (GND). The Grenadian is set on two beautiful beaches: Magazine Beach, which is a quiet, lay-on-the-beach-and-read spot, and Magazine Beach, where you can choose from a variety of water sports (non-motorized sports are complimentary; motorized sports offered for a fee). As it is the only resort on those beaches, it will seem as if we have it all to ourselves. Because this will be a small, mostly local site, there will be ample time for extra fellowship, and you will have the opportunity to share quality time with the local brethren.
If you prefer a little more action, there are many options. The snorkeling and scuba diving are outstanding—there is a marine park including underwater sculptures. Other activities include hiking, rum distillery/cocoa plantation tours, eco and garden tours.
We will most likely arrange a couple of group tours, including a catamaran cruise and an island tour.
