About Grenada

This small nation consists of three islands: Grenada, Carriacou (pronounced Carry-a KOO), and Petite Martinique (pronounced Pitty Mar-ti-NEEK). Grenada is by far the largest of the three, with a width of twelve miles (18 km) and a length of twenty-one miles (34 km). Its 133 square miles are mountainous, volcanic terrain, reaching heights of over 2,750 feet atop Mount St. Catherine.

Grenada, known as "The Spice of the Caribbean" is a beautiful rolling and mountainous island abounding in tropical flowers and spices. Friendly people populate the picturesque tows that dot the island. Dozens of sandy beaches and quiet, secluded coves border the island providing a getaway from the hustle of the real world.

Grenada’s smaller sister island, Carriacou, is hilly but not mountainous. With smoother terrain, Carriacou is an ideal destination for walking. It possesses fine sand beaches and natural harbours, as well as excellent views of the northern Grenadine islands.

Petite Martinique, the third and smallest island in the state, consists of little more than the tip of a volcanic cone poking through the water. It lies 2.5 miles off the northeast coast of Carriacou. It is only now being developed for visitors.

Activities abound on Grenada. From hiking to horseback riding, golf to tennis, and of course diving and snorkeling.

Grenada Scuba Diving Travel and AccommodationsThe underwater scenery in Grenada is every bit as breathtaking as it is above the waves, and just as accessable.
