Petite Martinique is located 2 ½ miles from Carriacou and is the smallest of the tri-island nation of Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Martinique at only 586-acres. The islands capital is North Village where the majority of the 900 population of Petit Martinique reside.
The highest point, the ‘Piton’, rises to 756 feet above sea level. With the Caribbean Sea lapping the shores on the western side of the island and the Atlantic swells breaking on the eastern coast, the people of Petite Martinique are a fishing community and it’s no wonder boat-building and seafaring have been a tradition since the mid-1800s.
The people of Petite Martinique have a rich cultural heritage and its residents are ranked as having the one of the highest per capita incomes in the entire East Caribbean region.
