What could be more intriguing than black sand and ancient petroglyphs? The story of Duquesne Bay starts with the Carib Indians or Kalinago who inhabited Grenada in pre-Columbus times. Migrants from South America to the Lesser Antilles, the Caribs believed the island was an ideal place to live and an ideal transit point for indigenous people travelling up and down the island chain.
In early times, there was a Carib settlement on Duquesne Bay, where visitors can still see evidence of the Carib population in the form of petroglyphs carved on large stones at the left end of the beach.
The beach is also home to abundant coral reefs, making it an ideal place to snorkel and meet the locals! As a fishing village, there are often small fishing boats along the beach and even some of the fisherman who hang out there playing dominoes or cards. They are very friendly so feel free to have a chat!
