Useful Information About Carriacou – Isle of Reefs
Carriacou is the sister isle of Grenada. Just 13 square miles in size, Carriacou is surrounded by beautiful beaches of white, golden and volcanic black sands. Coral reefs surround the island, providing a base for our beautiful sandy beaches – Carriacou is perfect for beach walks, snorkelling and sun bathing. The weather is warm and sunny all year round with air temperatures ranging from 23°C (73°F) during winter to 30°C (86°F) maximum in the summer, and sea temperatures never falling below 26°C (77°F). Carriacou represents the authentic Caribbean, you will find no glitzy resorts or tourist traps on the island, just warm and genuinely friendly people who are simply pleased to see you! We are sure you will fall in love with the island, the culture and the people.
Carriacou is also close to the famous Tobago Cays, which provided the setting for the film Pirates of The Caribbean. The Tobago Cays Marine Park is also a turtle sanctuary, where you can swim & snorkel with hawksbill and green turtles. Boat trips and tours can be arranged for you.
