One large island and two smaller ones make up Grenada, a quiet corner of the region that's rarely on people's radar when it comes to considering Caribbean holidays.
Grenada holidays invariably begin on Grenada Island, the largest island and the setting for the vibrant capital St George's, where flights to Grenada typically rrive. The picturesque, hillside town has a deep horseshoe-shaped harbour lined with eighteenth century warehouses. Grand Anse Beach is the main resort area, with beautiful, low-key beaches that are good for snorkelling and diving. Head inland to Grand Etang National Park to discover a crater lake, a wealth of flora and fauna and some good walking tracks.
Carriacou is a laid-back rural retreat with an unspoiled West Indian character and uncrowded beaches. A yachtsman's paradise, it holds a large regatta in summer.
Petit Martinique is a tiny paradise islet that takes around an hour to walk all the way round; a large mountain dominates the island, from the top of which you can enjoy panoramic views of the other Grenadine islands.
