Carriacou island

Ultimate guide (May 2024)
Carriacou is the second largest island of Grenada, as well as the southernmost of Grenadines. In fact, this is a beach capital of the country, as well as an iconic downshifting destination. There are also few small islets scattered around, thus giving great opportunities for those traveling by yacht. However, local beaches are rather mediocre, while average price tag is cheap only by the American standards. There are no any sightseeing as well, - except for the two shipwrecks. The key feature of the island is that it is a convenient starting point to visit magnificent Grenadines. These are located just nearby, though in another country. Shore and seabed: sand, stones.

This island ranks #7 of the "Best islands in Grenadines"
