We went there several times. It's the perfect holiday spot. Mile of beach, nobody on it. Shallow water, friendly folks and reasonably price tasty local lunches, mainly fish caught literally minutes ago! On a bus stop too.

We only had drinks here during the Maroon Festival. The staff was friendly. The lady behind the bar helped us find a table and made sure we were comfortable.

Best time I feel anyone should go is either Christmas time or Carnival time so you can really enjoy the drinks and the beach plus the owner is a very lovely person to interact with trust me.

Paradise beach is A-ma-zing! We stayed as long as we could on our overnight visit to Carriacou. Clear waters and Hard Wood Bar is right there to grab another rum punch. We took a taxi there and this is where we met our tour guide...More

First of all...it would be a FANTASTIC idea for someone to put signs up about the Manchineel trees. OR for ANYONE to warn you about them. If there were a review page for Carriacou itself...I would write about my terrible experience with this tree. But...More
