Carib's Leap is the a large cliff where the last of the island's indigenous warriors committed suicide by leaping from the cliff. After consistent losses in battles against the new European settlers, the natives gave up and killed themselves instead of surrendering.


The site is marked by a vertical tiled monument with a cross carved out of the center, allowing you to see through it. There is also a plaque telling the story of the final Carib people on Grenada.
