Grenada Geography, Climate, and Weather

Grenada is by far the largest of the three, with a width of twelve miles (18 km) and a length of twenty-one miles (34 km). Its 133 sq. miles (440 sq. km.) are mountainous, volcanic terrain, reaching heights of over 2,750 feet atop Mount St. Catherine.
This small nation consists of three islands: Grenada, Carriacou, and Petit Martinique. The three islands of Grenada are located in the Eastern Caribbean at the southern extremity of the Windward Islands, only 100 miles north of Venezuela.
To the north lie St. Vincent and the Grenadines; to the south Trinidad and Tobago. Carriacou, smaller sister island of Grenada. It is hilly but not mountainous. With smoother terrain, Carriacou is an ideal destination for walking.
It possesses fine sand beaches and natural harbours, as well as offering excellent views out over the northern Grenadine islands.
Petite Martinique, the third and by far the smallest island in the state, consists of little more than the tip of a volcanic cone poking through the water. It is only now being developed for visitors.

It is tempered by the steady and cooling trade winds, with an average temperature ranging from 24C/75F to 30C/87F.
The lowest temperatures occur between November and February. Because of Grenada's remarkable topography, the island also experiences climate changes according to altitude. The driest season is between January and May.
Even during the rainy season, from June to December, it rarely rains for more than an hour at a time and generally not every day.
