From Quiz The Island of Spice

Answer: Kick-'em-Jenny

Kick-'em-Jenny is 1,300 m (4,265 ft) above the sea floor in the north of Grenada, just a few miles off the sister island of Carriacou. On July 23-24, 1939, a major eruption occurred, spawning small tsunamis which reached Grenada and the Grenadine islands. Another eruption happened in 2001, although very little damage was reported. Although the volcano is relatively stable, who knows what is really going on down there?

4. A 13-acre crater lake which has formed over a dormant volcano is a popular attraction for visitors to the island. Its name simply means "Great Lake" in the original French. What is the name of this lake?

From Quiz Grenada: Isle of Spice

Answer: Grand Etang

According to local guides, nobody has ever been able to find the bottom of this crater lake by using sonar. For all intents and purposes it is a "bottomless lake." Anybody up for a swim?
