The Place You Always Wanted To See But Didn’t Know How To Find: Pure Carriacou

ST. GEORGE’S GRENADA – October 6, 2015 - Some places are perfect just the way they are, and Pure Grenada’s sister isle Carriacou lights the way for the traveller seeking an excursion off the beaten track. Thirteen square miles and six thousand people with no traffic lights, no fast food, no pollution, no tall buildings – the beauty of Carriacou is in all the things it is not.

Pure Carriacou highlights a culture where life is bound by community, nature and elegant simplicity. Filmed during the annual Carriacou Regatta, the creative team was inspired to use this unique maritime festival to capture the authenticity and beauty of the Caribbean’s hidden gem – the Isle of Reefs.

Produced by: Les Stroud Productions for the Grenada Hotel and Tourism Association
Written & Directed by Jennifer Alexis, Filmed and Edited by Arthur Daniel.
