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 a new resort 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 is Grenada's renewed focus on hiking trails, an addition to Grenada's already fascinating chocolate industry. 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.
