This is Grenada: Grand Anse Spice & Craft Market

1Crystal-clear water, long stretches of fine, white sand, easy access, and tons of shade-offering trees make Grand Anse Beach a favorite for locals and tourists alike. It’s also the perfect spot for a spice & craft market, and you’ll often find vendors walking the beach selling their handmade jewelry and “spice necklaces.” My friends and I spent the afternoon wandering through the open stalls, sniffing spices, chatting with local artists, and admiring all the handmade crafts and jewelry that the market had to offer.

This is a turtle shell/skin(underbelly?) that can be cut, smoothed, and shaped into a beautiful bracelet. Some of the other bracelets are made of coral or calabash shells.

Hand-carved and painted animals – perfect for a nursery!
