This is one of the smallest inhabited islands within the Windward Isles belonging to the tri-island state of Grenada. The island which is volcanic in origin, provides an ideal place to stop off while sailing for a spot of adventure in the form of a hill climb to the top of the ‘Piton’. Once at the 230m summit the view of the coastline and surrounding islands is one well worth the walk. The friendly and welcoming islanders are of both African and European descent, many of which live by boat-building, fishing and seafaring. Many of the large fishing boats within the area catch Tuna, which is then sold to Grenada and shipped on to the U.S.A. Sailing the waters around this island provide an ideal opportunity for activities such as scuba diving and snorkelling and offer an abundance of marine life. For those travelling on charters and tours the island proves a tranquil vacation destination, with plenty of cultural interest, beautiful blue seas and wonderful bathing beaches.
