Uncommon Envy: Grenada’s Corner of The Grenadines

Uncommon Envy: Grenada’s Corner of The Grenadines

They sat there on the horizon, their heads peeking out over the rollicking surf as the fading sun set the stage for romance. Teasing, tempting, they seduced in silence. Words simply were not necessary between us. I was hooked at my first glance of Grenada’s Grenadines.

It’s easy to know Grenada’s largest Grenadine islands – Carriacou (13 square miles) and Petite Martinique (.8 square miles) – marketed, as they are, alongside Grenada herself as The Spice Islands of The Caribbean. There’s more to Grenada’s Grenadines than just that, though.

Four additional islands fall under Grenada’s flag as well – Saline, Frigate, Ronde, and Large Island, which at 37 acres is actually the third-smallest of Grenada’s Grenadines. Unlike Carriacou and Petite Martinique, these tiny Grenadines are uninhabited, no doubt making for uniquely uncommon island hopping exploration and discovery.

From the sandy shore beneath the super sweet Petite Anse Hotel at the far northern tip of Grenada, I sat and enjoyed the view above of these, the smallest Spice Islands, and daydreamed of seeing and experiencing them all. I would be leaving Grenada the following morning, though. Not nearly enough time to take our flirting to the next level…

If you’ve ever been and have tips or suggestions on things we should not miss (like this great beach bar, for instance), let us know in the comments section below.

    Hey Steve,

    So glad you are finally making the trek to Carriacou, where my family is from. Must go to Laurenas in town. Awesome rum punch and the food is beyond fresh. They grow their own produce and raise their animals for the restaurant/beach bar. You must also go to paradise beach, absolutely beautiful. I would recommend going by my grands but they will be In the states. Have an awesome time!!

    • Thanks for the suggestions! I’m actually not in The Spice Isles just yet, but making plans to be there this summer. I’ll be sure to check out all of your recommendations and report back in due course. Cheers!

    Uncommon Caribbean, like it a lot! Northern end of Grenada starting to happen.
    How about the 5 star Summerhill Bed + Beyond. Opened last year, sits atop Bedford point, 2000′ of ocean front, best views ever. A MUST!
