Grenada and Carriacou is a year-round twin island dive destination with over 50 dive sites and 20 wrecks with impressive marine bio-diversity. Many of the sites are within a short distance of the shore, enabling morning dives to be completed by lunchtime. All Grenada dive operators offer the opportunity to become PADI Certified.
Wreck sites range in level from shallow water wrecks for beginners to the 600-foot-long Bianca C, which sank in the St. George’s harbor in 1961, for the advanced diver. Ideal for beginner divers is the World’ First Underwater Sculpture Park, featuring more than 100 sculptures that act as artificial reefs. It was named as one of the “25 Wonders of the World” by National Geographic Traveler.
Carriacou’s Magic Garden dive site is good for all levels of divers. Not only does it include a small boat wreck, the dive also ends in a rock garden with giant boulders where the volcanic activity gives the effect of champagne bubbles.
Known as the “Isle of Reefs,” Carriacou’s shallow clear waters are also perfect for snorkeling.
Petite Martinique (Pitty-Mar-Ti-Neek) has a strong culture and rich history manifested through its traditions and festivals. The highest point on the island, the Piton (750 feet high) was once the site of the island’s maroon feast also known as the ‘Sugaring of the Piton’. Signature festivals on this island include the cultural Petite Martinique Heritage Weekend and the Whitsuntide Regatta. Petite Martinique is also blessed with fine beaches on the calmer Western Leeward side.
Grenada is located just outside of the Hurricane Belt at the southernmost tip of the Windward Islands. Its topography creates ideal sheltered marinas and anchorages. Offering some of the best sailing in the Caribbean, Grenada is a top yachting center for the region, providing an excellent base for exploring the Grenadines. Opportunities can include a crewed yacht or bare boat rental, or even a client’s own boat.
Grenada’s 10 marinas can accommodate yachts varying from 75 to 300 feet. Visit the Graduate Resources section for a complete listing of marinas and the services they offer. The destination is also the site of a number of regattas, including “Grenada Sailing Week” in January to February and the “Carriacou Regatta” in August. For lovers of everything nautical, Carriacou and Petite Martinique are known for unique traditional boat building.
Here in Grenada is where you can discover blue waters framed by both white and black sand beaches and inland wonders that include tropical rain-forests, waterfalls, sulfur springs, and breathtaking views.
Carriacou and Petite Martinique boast 45 white sandy beaches and 8 black sand
beaches. Swim, snorkel, play football, cricket, or volleyball, kayaking, paddle
boarding, and more to keep the fun going along the sand. Grenada’s Grand Anse
Beach with its two miles of white sands and calm waters is one of the most
popular beaches, and where you’ll find many hotels and restaurants. Quieter
beaches include La Sagesse Beach and Levera Beach on Grenada and Anse La Roche
Beach and Paradise Beach on Carriacou. Black Bay Beach is a smaller beach with black sand, I loved snorkeling there as thieving popped out due to the difference in color.Palm Beach is the main beach on Petite
Martinique, near to hotels, restaurants and shops.
Grenada, Carriacou & Petite Martinique are only 133 square miles, but these islands are filled with lush terrain, fruit and spice trees, exotic gardens and more than 160 species of tropical birds.
Among the natural beauty that visitors can come across on their hikes is the chance to explore the rain-forest, and one of Grenada’s 15 waterfalls. Some, like Concord Falls, are accessible right off the road, while others might require a hike to get to such as a 30-minute hike to Mt. Carmel Waterfall. Visitors can also experience the natural soothing quality of Sulfur Springs, or take a hike that passes along one of Grenada’s many lakes. The 30-acre Grand Etang Lake is the crater of an extinct volcano. Bird-watching is big along Lake Antoine, as is a walk around its perimeter. Bird-watching in Grenada includes the opportunity for a sighting of the Grenada Dove, found only on Grenada. The Mt. Hartman National Park was established to protect these lovely winged creatures.
Plan clients’ visits for April through July where they can view the nesting of Leather-back sea turtles on the offshore islands of Sandy Island and Carriacou. Levera Beach within Levera National Park is another major site for Leather-back sea turtle nesting.
Adventures abound in Grenada with one-ninth of its landmass preserved as parks and natural wildlife sanctuaries. The destination is filled with lush landscapes, rain-forests, waterfalls and fascinating flora and fauna, all begging to be discovered by you.

Grenada, Carriacou & Petite Martinique are made for romance. Here, couples will find white sand beaches, turquoise waters, lush green mountains and year-round tropical weather, all ideal for honeymoons, destination weddings or vow renewal.
Weddings can take place on the beach, in front of a waterfall, at the resort, and even underwater, which can be organized with Dive Shops. On-site wedding planners for ceremonies on Petite Martinique can help you and the couple incorporate local traditions and culture into their wedding. “Dancing the cake” is an especially beloved tradition. Taking place early in the morning, dancers hold the bride’s and groom’s cakes with the groom’s dancers trying to keep their cake above the bride’s.
Getting married in Grenada is an easy process, with many of the resorts and hotels offering wedding and honeymoon packages to make the booking process simple. Important to know is that there is a residency of three days that is required before an application for a marriage license can be submitted. The processing time can take two to three days. Each license is valid for three months and costs EC$100 (approximately US $37) if both parties are non-Grenadians. Same day licenses are also available in Grenada at a charge of EC$500 (approximately US $185 and special conditions apply) through a licensed agent.
