One of the 32 Grenadines, beautiful Carriacou is situated off the northeastern coast of Grenada and is the largest island of the group. Like most of the islands in the group, it is volcanic and possesses a mountainous terrain, surrounded by beautiful black sand beaches. The name Carriacou itself is supposed to come from the Carib word for the island. In the 17th and 18th century records, it was spelled Kayryouacou - which is quite a mouthful! The first French of Carriacou were said to be turtle fishermen, who were joined later by some inhabitants of Guadeloupe after their plantations had been destroyed by insects. The British took control in 1763. Today, there are still three distinct sections of Carriacou reflecting the Scottish, French and English influences.
