The landscape of Grenada is one of the most beautiful and diverse environments in the Caribbean, including crater lakes as well as a variety of plant and animal life. The forests change to mangroves at the coast, giving way to dramatic white sand beaches, brilliant blue water, and exquisite coral reefs. Grenada's beauty is complemented by its history and cultural heritage. There are many local festivals, fairs, and markets that remain a vital part of life on Grenada. Its centuries old spice plantations and rum distilleries still use time-honored methods, emphasizing quality rather than quantity.
Carriacou will give visitors a glimpse of a more leisurely way of life. Coral reefs surround the island providing a base for beautiful sandy beaches. The main town and port of entry is Hillsborough and there are several smaller villages dotting the island. Carriacouans are renown for their sea faring skills and many locally made vessels are still in use today from small fishing sloops to large trading schooners.
Petite Martinique is small and intriguingly authentic. The main beach is located on the western side of the island and includes two docks. One is privately owned and the other belongs to the Government of Grenada.
An overnight here is a real treat. There are several small quaint restaurants that are within walking distance. It is also a great place to take on water and fuel and look for bargains on beer, liquor, and wine. The residents live by boatbuilding, seafaring, and fishing and in the old days, smuggling. There are usually several cargo vessels at anchor. The many fancy new homes are recent, but some of the older wooden, pitched-roof houses are photogenic, especially at the eastern end of the island.
