Grand Etang Lake

Set in an extinct submarine volcano, Grand Etang Lake is the largest lake on Grenada.

The largest lake on the island of Grenada, Grand Etang Lake is set 1,800 feet above sea level and measures approximately 20 feet deep.

This is one of the most popular spots on the island for a guided hike, but you can brave the trails surrounding the lake alone and be on the lookout for lizards and tropical birds. Hike times range from an easy 15 minutes to a more challenging four hours.
