The sovereign state of Grenada consists of seven islands. Grenada is the largest and the southernmost of the chain. The coastlines are also dotted with islets. Most are uninhabited. A beautiful example is Marquis Island seen from the fishing village of Marquis. The long, tall and tree-lined island was once attached to the mainland. The National Park System maintains trails for hikers and birdwatchers. Divers enjoy exploring submerged sections of the island plus surrounding coral reef.
