    Very pretty lake
    Went with the hope of seeing the mona monkeys but luck was not with us we heard one but saw none. However the lake was very pretty and we say the goldfish and koi carp which where very cool. There are lots of hiking trails to take through the jungle but they are very steep. Its a lovely place to have a sit and maybe a picnic.

    Great Hiking Opportunities at Grand Etang National Park
    Grand Etang Lake is located in Grand Etang National Park. It is a crater lake of an extinct volcano. This is a beautiful area and is only a 30 min ride from St George's. You can easily get out here by catching the #6 bus from the bus depot in St George's. The buses in Grenada are minivans that collect and drop off locals (and tourists open to adventure) along a specific route. Very inexpensive and part of the experience. The lake is nice enough but even better are the other hiking opportunities in the National Park including a strenuous but exciting climb up Mount Qua Qua for panoramic views or the hike to the scenic Seven Sisters Waterfalls. If hungry or thirsty, you can find local food and drinks at the visitor center.

    Beautiful view of the lake from the visitor centre
    Really loved the view point at the top where the visitor centre is. Paid $US2 per person to enter. Interesting information and video. We also drove down to the lake. It's a shame you can't walk right round the lake. We walked for a bit through the forest. If we had had longer would have loved to have done a longer walk. The sign posting could have been a bit better.

Just a lake with not much to see. There is a walk around it but it was extremely muddy and slippers and some of the paths and view points in the area were cordoned off. Supposedly a fee to enter but the ticket booths were closed so I just walked in. Not something I would have been happy paying to see. Bus 6 goes there for 5ECD one way from St George’s.

It's a lovely lake.

Probably one to miss if you are on limited time.

Went for a walk. Sadly did not see any monkeys. Great views.

It was beautiful and peaceful. Was thankful for finding a cool area in the island. Not into touching and imprinting wildlife but the monkeys were quite amusing.

I’m not sure if I missed something with Grand Etang Lake. We drove up, jumped out, had a look, saw some fish being fed by other visitors and that was it. It was a lake. We were visiting waterfalls that were in the area so it was a minor detour. I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit it unless already in the area.

Catch a bus (number 6 or number 2) from St George’s for EC$10 round trip, chat to local residents and arrive at the most beautiful serene volcanic lake, full of koi carp! The park is EC$2 to go inside hundreds of acres of jungle.

We hiked up to the right (steep but do-able) to the top lip of the crater and could see over the entire island to the sea and beyond.

We then headed back to the visitor centre, headed up to the viewing deck (5-10 mins) and could see across lush tropical forests to the coast on the other side.l of the island.

We saw several mongoose, a troop of Mola monkeys and lots of birds and incredible plants, flowers and trees.

It’s hard to describe the vast, silence of the jungle and the tranquility of the lake - this volcano is how the island was formed.

If you think of this as a koi pond and a waste of time then you should probably stay on the cruise ship and head back to the buffet!

The lake is a pond with some koi in it. If there happens to be a helper there who can coax a monkey down from a tree, then it's worthwhile. Otherwise, not really worth a stop.
