If you've been searching the Caribbean for an island that offers beachfront real estate in an idyllic location with the laid back charm of yesteryear, look no further than Carriacou.
Located in the Grenadines in the south-eastern Caribbean, this 13 square mile island forms part of the nation of Grenada which also includes Carriacou, Petit Martinique and a handful of smaller islands: Ronde Island, Caille Island, Diamond Island, Large Island, Saline Island, and Frigate Island.
Known for its low key luxury, beautiful beaches and lush greenery, the islands have a flourishing high end tourism sector renowned for sailing and diving. Tourism arrivals increased 18.6% in the first half of 2014 - the highest rate in the entire Caribbean.
The property market has started to attract foreign interest too. A recently introduced Citizenship by Investment Program has started to stimulate Grenada's real estate sector. However, tiny Carriacou is, for the time being, a relatively unknown investment location "reserved" for the lucky few foreign property buyers "in the know."
Home to just 8,000 people, Carriacou is a popular vacation destination for Grenadians, famous for its beautiful white sand beaches, green hills and spectacular coral reefs which lie just off shore.
This week we present the opportunity to acquire 1 of just a handful of 5 bedroom luxury beachfront homes for sale on Carriacou.
