Beautiful location, the air smells like spices. The lake is peaceful and gives you a feeling of calm. There are trails for hiking and a nice picnic area

Large lake - the palms and thick forest off on the other side looked like Jurassic Park. Really cool. There were amazingly beautiful flowers growing. Huge leaves. I picked up a bloom that had fallen off a flower and took pix - it was so beautiful even from the ground. Love that you can go up to the tropical forest... More

Great views and wonderful sense of calm when beside the water. No animals about when we were there, but some food stall near the entrance were welcome.

This is in a beautiful location. You are in a rainforest and have stunning scenes all around. There is a very small entrance fee however this was included within our tour package. Next to the location to see the lake is section of forest with monkeys in. Well worth a visit for beautiful scenery.

We caught the local bus up to Grand Etang. What a beautiful place it's is damp and very humid but not hot. The areas are very muddy and strong sturdy walking shoes are a must even trainers are pushing it to be honest. You are over 1900 feet above see level so asthmatics could find it a problem. We did...

Went to Grenada with family; my mom, my sister, my 2 nieces and myself of course lol. We decided to visit Grand Etang Lake some 9 days after we arrived. Now note, the lake is some 30 minutes drive from the Carenage. When we finally got to the lake it was just breathtaking! Now from a little internet research about... More

We went here as part of our island tour. Lots of fish, bring a bit of bread and feed them if you want to see them get excited. Apparently, no one know how deep this lake is even now...it sits on the mouth of the volcano that created this beautiful island.

The long drive up to the lake was definitely worth it. The Grand Etang Lake is really a crater lake and is more than 19,000 ft above sea level. The surrounding flora and fauna are also very interesting. The temperature at this height is definitely more appealing than the temperature at the various beaches. This lake is worth a visit.

A stunning and peaceful 30+ acre lake with a wonderful backdrop to take some excellent photos. A visit to the area may also result in you seeing some monkeys too.

The view is great over the volcanic lake. The pathways have what looked like nutshells covering it to make them look pretty. You see a few animals at least the day we went. Musician playing music gives the area a nice atmosphere. There is an area that sells food on the entrance.
