The Mystery of Grenada
The Grand Etang Lake, is one of Grenada’s prime attractions, as it draws large crowds of both Tourists and locals year round to its beautiful shores to observe its unique splendor.
The lake is the remnants of a volcano that is extinct. It is located in Saint Andrew Parish, and evidence suggests that the it is connected to Kick em Jenny, an active submarine volcano off Grenada’s northern shore, as when Kick Em Jenny was bubbling, so too were the waters in Grand Etang Lake. The Grand Etang Lake is 1,800 feet (550 m) above sea level and it is one of the two crater lakes on the island (the other being Lake Antoine).
Some say that the lake is bottomless, as its deepest point has never been found, and there are even stranger rumors of a mermaid living in the depths that lure men to their watery grave. Other strange tales abound, such as the stories that the Loch Ness monster has taken up residence in the lake.
Are any of these rumors true? We do not know, but what we do know is that it is beautiful and surrounded in mystery. All the more reason that you simply must visit the lake while on the island to make up your own mind.
