Carriacou is the most southerly of the Grenadines, situated 20 miles north of Grenada, latitude 12,5 degrees. It has an area of 13 square miles and is the largest of the chain of islands between Grenada and St. Vincent. Don't forget to visit the renowned Sandy Island just east of Carriacou (right in front of our hotel). This tiny island serves as the symbol of the ideal sailing and not sailing tourism destination - pure white sand embraced by turquoise blue waters (the Caribbean dream). While in Carriacou whether your choose to explore, snorkel, swim, dive or simply stroll, you will experience the special lure of this gem and its islets. Come enjoy, retuning again and again to bask in what one might refer to as the 'paradise for water lovers',
and escape from the routine of daily living, and when you leave take only good memories, leave nothing but footprints. Boat building and launching is a major tradition. Pre-Lenten Carnival, August Regatta and the Yuletide Parang Festival have also contributed to its fertile heritage. In April the last 3 years Carriacou has also hosted a Maroon Festival, a great success, featuring local and international artist performing in music, dance, drumming, etc. Local cooking is also a major part of the festival, and one day of the festival you can get everything for free, just like in the traditional maroons where one village invites the other villages to enjoy the crop-over and the harvest of the year.
