When the image first loads and becomes viewable, you are looking southwest. On up the road, and just around the turn to the left is Lauriston International Airport. More to the right you can see the most western area of Carriacou, Cistern Point, off on the horizon.
As you scan a little to the right, the island you see on the western horizon is Mabouya Island (about 2 miles out). If you zoom in on that area, you will notice a thin white strip of sand directly in front of Mabouya. That is Sandy Island, which is a little less than 1 mile in from Mabouya.
Sandy Island is known for its beautiful beach and great snorkeling. Large cruise ships and personal crafts often stop off shore and allow passengers to spend time sunning on the beach. A little over 10 years ago, the Robinsons encountered a production crew that was making a commercial for Coca-Cola with Sandy Island as its location!
Scanning on around to the right gives you a good view of the crystal clear Caribbean. Honestly, you can go out away from shore for a couple of hundred feet and still be able to see right down to the bottom! By about 3:00 PM, the water is usually bathtub warm and just right for whatever strikes your fancy.
As you spin on around toward to the north, you can see the small island of Union on the horizon. It is a possession of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Next you see off in the distance the northwestern point of Carriacou, with High North rising up to 955 feet as the highest peak on Carriacou. More to the right and back towards you is Carriacou's only town of Hillsborough. To the extreme right is our station wagon sitting on the road that leads from town to the airport.
Just in case you are wondering, the station wagon is indeed a 4WD 1987
Dodge Colt Vista, and it has 135,000 mile on it! We brought it with us from
the States when we moved to Carriacou in 1991. We affectionately call it
Lazarus at times. Good vehicles are very hard to come by and very expensive
in Grenada. There is not one car lot on the entire island of Carriacou!
Thus, vehicles are driven, repaired, and restored until the chassis falls
apart and cannot be used anymore.
Please contact the Webmaster if you have any problems with this special feature.
