GRENADA’S NEW HOME FOR ECO-TOURISM
St. Patrick, Grenada, August 8, 2007 - - The Grenada Board of Tourism is proud to announce the Levera Bay Project. Levera Bay area is an exotic location on the northern tip Grenada that is teaming with wildlife and lush vegetation. The area will be developed into a $112 million U.S. eco-tourism project that will both bring more attention to the existing natural attractions and work to develop the local communities.
Located in the heart of the northern St. Patrick parish, the 360-acre site will feature 250 rooms that are to be completed in various phases. During the first phase of development, a 40-room boutique hotel with villas are to be completed, along with development of a turtle watching program, horseback riding and nature trails in the Levera National Park. Snorkeling and scuba diving in the coral reef, located right off the coast of Levera, are already very popular attractions.
The Grenada Board of Tourism also hopes that phase one of this project will promote vacationers to visit Carriacou and the Grenadine Islands because of their close proximity. Funding will also be used to bring local restaurants and attractions at Bathway Beach and the nearby town of Sauteurs up to standard with those offered at the resort. Farmers who are involved in safe organic farming will also receive assistance from this project.
“The Grenada Board of Tourism is pleased that this project will add quality to our tourism product and is hopeful that other communities will benefit from these activities that augment Grenada’s offering to both locals and visitors,” said Jocelyn Sylvester-Gairy, Director of Tourism, for the Grenada Board of Tourism.
Known as the “Spice Island of the Caribbean,” Grenada boasts some of the Caribbean’s most beautiful beaches, delectable cuisine and spices, a tropical rainforest, and a wide range of fun-filled activities such as world-class diving, snorkeling, hiking, fishing and sailing.
