Carriacou Day Trip

Duration: Full Day

carriacou day trip

Just when you thought your Grenada holiday couldn’t be any more blissful we present you with this wonderful excursion to Grenada’s most popular sister island of Carriacou! This exceptional little islet is only a short ferry ride away and is the perfect escape from a lazy day during your time in Grenada.

This is the place where the Grenadians holiday and go to unwind, relax and escape from it all…so if you thought Grenada was a natural haven beyond parallel…a trip here will prove you that there’s a place where it can get even better!

From The Carenage in St George you will be boarding the Osprey Shuttle boat to begin our journey towards the magical island of Carriacou. Once you arrive there you will be greeted by a representative from The Board of Tourism who will set you off on a tour of discovery around this little gem of an island.

Carriacou is the Caribbean’s best kept secret, as the more visitors continue to discover it the more that return year after year but few boast about its beauty, choosing to keep it as their little secret. This one-of-a-kind island appeals to a different kind of tourist…the one that expect an island to simply be an island, with no added frills or thrills, just a natural laid back environment where people are easy going, friendly and welcoming and where the nature surrounding you remains largely untouched.

At around midday you will be served a traditional lunch with the best of local dishes at a picturesque little restaurant. Take the time to relax and enjoy your meal before your driver takes you to enjoy the remainder of your day at the beautiful Paradise Beach. This is by far, Carriacou’s most mesmerising beach with its 2.5 km long stretch of sun and sea where the waters are shallow blue and the sand is bright and white. The shore is shaded by perfectly lined palm trees and there is a gentle breeze refreshing the air. Nevertheless, the lack of strong currents means that swimming is an indulging delight, safe for non-swimmers and children of all ages.

Known as the Land of Reefs, Carriacou is also the largest of Grenada’s sister islands with an outstandingly rich marine life and beautiful coral reef formations. During your time at Paradise Beach you’ll have the chance to do some great snorkelling or scuba diving as this island is home to an amazingly rich undersea world!

At the end of this invigorating day of discovery and extreme relaxation you will be sailing back to Grenada on The Osprey Shuttle Boat as you wave goodbye to this little island of dreams and treasures. As you sail away into the ocean and take in the fresh Caribbean breezes making soft ripples in the turquoise sea; you’ll be thinking to yourself just how unforgettable this day experience will be, and you’ll realise how Carriacou would have stolen a little bit of your heart.
