Read an Excerpt

Petit Carenage Beach has to be one of the prettiest on Carriacou. A long stretch of powder white sand along a crescent-shaped bay with turquoise seas, rolling breakers and the skeleton hull of a shipwreck sitting on the reef at one end make it incredibly picturesque. Add to that the verdancy and tangled roots of the L'Apelle mangrove forest with its plentiful birdlife separating beach from road and you have a very idyllic setting indeed. Despite its apparent remoteness, Petit Carenage is very accessible. You can get there from the High North Nature Trail if you are walking from the west coast via Anse La Roche, or alternatively you can reach it by walking northwards from the boatbuilding village of Windward on the east coast.
