The fact that most people don’t realize that there are in fact three islands in the nation of Grenada is a fitting introduction to Carriacou (carry-a-cou). Like its minor island sibling, this humble isle is oft forgotten.
Where the island of Grenada can feel touristy and busy, you’ll struggle to ever feel that way here. You won’t find cruise ships, big resorts or tacky souvenir shops. This is West Indian life the way it was 50 years ago – quiet, laid back and relaxed. This beautiful little island is thankfully off the radar of most travelers, leaving its green hills and white beaches ripe for discovery.
The island itself is joy to experience with some tremendous hiking to be found and some hidden beaches that are destined to make your all time best of list.

Carriacou Island Day Trip from Grenada
Escape Grenada for a slice of Caribbean paradise on Carriacou, a small island to the north that’s part of the nation of Grenada but a member of the Grenadines island chain. Laid-back and nearly deserted compared to Grenada, Carriacou is a picture-perfect day trip destination.
