Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Apart from the historical importance of this place and a fairly good viewpoint where the last of the Carib Indians leapt to their deaths rather than surrender to the French, there's little to recommend it. You need to park between the school and the church and then walk through the cemetery to find the spot. It has an impressive and fairly new monument to tell you about it but there's nothing else...

We went to Carib's Leap (aka Sauteurs) on a family trip with our toddler. We visited the church which was built in 1804 and is still used. Once we were done with that we went around back to see the cemetery and the place where the Carib's jumped to their death. We were warmly greeted by a sister of the Church. She walked us through the property and gave us the history of the area. She was very kind, knowledgeable and great with our toddler. After we were done the tour, she offered us some homemade ice cream which was absolutely delicious - we tried the almond, which was made from almonds from a 100 year old almond tree on the property, and the nutmeg which was also very good. The tour is free however, they do ask for a donation. Parking is free and ice cream is $5EC per serving. They also offer light sandwiches and beverages.

Very interesting place where you are greeted warmly and given the history of the location, which was sadly a place of mass-murder by the French soldiers. Kind of awe-inspiring to look over the cliff where all those people were forced to jump to their death. Glad they've kept this memorial alive.....it's a story that shouldn't be forgotten.

Not a lot to do there, but worth the stop.

Grenada is a wonderful getaway. Its full of incredibly friendly folk. However, this is a chance to learn a piece of the history of these peoples struggle to be free and independent. A non-Eurocentric point of view is required. I have read the prior reviews and find them lacking. The extermination of the natives in lieu of enslavement is very sobering and should resonate in today's world. Take a sobering minute to consider the alternative faced by these people. The French, whom they had invited on the island as friends, had vanquished them in battle. The choice of the survivors: to live in French slavery or die. This is a place of great solemnity. Just think about it.

We made a quick stop (again saw cruisers here) for the memorial of the Carib inhabitants that jumped to their deaths rather than be enslaved.

Just walk through the cemetary to get to the memorial

We visited Leapers Hill whilst staying in nearby Grenville during our 3 month stay in Grenada. I had heard about the amazing vistas at the landmark and the ice cream before and was keen to visit.

We met Agnes who was very obliging and promptly offered us ice cream and coffee. The almond, nutmeg and coconut combo was delightful and followed by a tour of the site which was very informative, including information about the church, those notable locals buried in the cemetery and local turtle watching opportunity a little further up the coastline at Levera Beach. The site has restroom facilities and offers great photo opportunities which Agnes was also happy to do. Like many Grenadians you came across, the staff are warm and gracious.

We've passed by many times but this year we determined to visit this location. The site is sign-posted from the main road through the town of Sauteurs - turn left after cresting the hill by the post office. There is limited parking off the side street near a school.

A short walk through the church yard takes you to a cliff top over-looking a rocky shoreline. That's it! It's where a number of 18th Caribs chose to jump to their deaths rather than submit to the French. A modern memorial records the story. Another memorial at the churchyard gate records that the first person in the world to be identified as suffering from 'sickle-cell' disease was born in the town.

Behind the church, overlooking the churchyard, is a small refreshment counter - proceeds for the benefit of the church. Toilets are available too. The lady there is a fund of information about the ancient Caribs and she sells home-made ice-cream in aid of the church. Pay her a visit - the nut-meg flavoured ice-cream is a must!

We went to Carib's leap last week when we visited Grenada. We met Ms Agnes there who talked us through the history. She is a wonderful , warm person who runs the cafe there. My husband, daughter and I were overwhelmed by her generosity of spirit! Additionally, we had some of her homemade almond ice cream .... which was just out of this world !! Definitely recommend getting some ice cream and meeting Ms Agnes when you are in Grenada. Carib's leap is definitely worth a visit

Unfortunately the visitor centre at Carib's Leap is closed, and the site is now quite overgrown. There were tourist office employees outside the entrance (by the church) who offer a guided tour, but we chose to wander into the site on our own. We couldn't find out about the history of the site, but there are lovely views north towards Carriacou.

In the cemetery there is a monument explaining how the Caribs leapt to their deaths from the cliffs.
