Places not on Google Maps – Marmelodica

Extracts from the following book – Places not on Google Maps

The only former Portuguese island in the Caribbean, Marmelodica is one of the lesser known of the Grenadine Islands. The name comes from the hundreds of quince trees that are found on the island, which have been harvested since 1752 and whose fruit are sent all around the world to make marmelade. The economy of the island has diversified in recent years with a few hotels making appearances in the western part of the island, though their menus are heavily biased towards quince-based food. There is no airport, so tourists have to arrive by ferry from Kingstown on St Vincent.
