Pearls Airport

Pearls Airport Review

Pearls, the island's original airport just north of Grenville on the Atlantic coast, was replaced in 1984 by Maurice Bishop International Airport in Point Salines. Here at Pearls, deteriorating Cuban and Soviet planes sit at the end of the old runway. The planes were abandoned after the 1983 intervention, during which Cuban "advisers" helping to construct the airport at Point Salines were summarily removed from the island. There's a good view north to the Grenadines and a small beach nearby. Interestingly, three decades later, Cuban workers helped build the new Argyll International Airport in neighboring St. Vincent (scheduled to open in 2014) with no similar international reaction.
