About this book

Written by Caribbean-based writer, publisher and photographer Paul Crask, this new, thoroughly updated fourth edition of Bradt’s Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique remains the only standalone guide to this alluring Caribbean-island destination. With insider knowledge gleaned from 15-plus years’ exploration, Bradt’s guidebook is rich in detail, local colour and practical information. Detailed listings covering accommodation (from homestays to top-range boutique hotels), dining and activities (including off-the-beaten-path experiences) are complemented by the author’s personal take on making the most of your stay.
Grenada is an English-speaking tri-island nation famed for its nutmeg and cocoa, sailing regattas attracting international crowds, jaw-dropping beaches, pastoral villages, mountain trails, fabulous scuba diving including an underwater sculpture gallery, and strong cultural traditions including carnival parades. The main island, Grenada, has a tall spine of forested mountain ridges surrounded by rivers, waterfalls and farmlands, and the scenic coastline is replete with secluded bays and anchorages. To the north lie the tranquil islands of Carriacou and Petite Martinique, which harbour deserted beaches and coral reefs, boast traditions of Big Drum Dance and boat building, and offer a warm, friendly welcome.
This new edition incorporates the many developments on the islands over recent years. These include an increasingly impressive diversity of accommodation options resulting from ongoing Investment, including two new resorts on Grenada’s Grand Anse Beach, which complement the more traditional feel maintained in the north of the island and its smaller neighbours. Also featured are Grenada’s renewed focus on hiking trails, an addition to Grenada’s already fascinating chocolate industry, and a new Festival of Lights at Christmas.
Visiting this year-round destination is increasingly easy thanks to ever-more frequent, direct flights from North America and Europe. With ample great accommodation and dining options, Grenada perfectly blends traditional island life with modern Caribbean living. Whether you are into yachting, scuba diving on wrecks and reefs, kayaking through mangrove forests, hiking mountain trails, ‘jumping-up’ at carnival, sampling vintage rums at historic distilleries, exploring historic estates, or relaxing poolside at luxurious beachside resorts, Bradt’s Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique is ideal for travellers of all kinds.

About the Author

Paul Crask (www.paulcrask.com) is a writer, independent magazine designer and publisher, and documentary photographer who has lived in the eastern Caribbean for over 17 years. Based in Dominica, he has written about many islands in the eastern Caribbean, including Grenada and the Grenadines. Next to Dominica, Grenada and Carriacou are Paul’s favourite Caribbean islands, and he has explored them often. In Carriacou, he loves to wander the remote tracks of Limlair and High North, chatting to boatbuilders in Windward, and crossing the water to Petite Martinique, which he feels is as remote and peaceful as it gets in this part of the world. In Grenada, he enjoys walking the beaches and visiting the cocoa farms, chocolate factories and rum distilleries which have all provided him with inspiration. His freelance travel articles and photographs have featured in international and regional publications. He is also the author of Bradt’s Dominica.
