Calliste is a destination that is completely landlocked, but it is located so near the coast that a drive to the shore takes just moments – and as an added bonus, visitors will have access to beaches on both the west and south coasts.

The Area's Beaches

You will discover several beaches to consider in and around the area. Snorkeling is an option at some of these beaches, for people who enjoy the underwater scene. You can click on specific beach names to get additional information concerning that part of the coast.

Magazine Beach

One beach where snorkeling is a popular is Pink Gin Beach. The clear waters of the horseshoe-shaped harbor at Pink Gin Beach are ideal for swimming, and the sands at this amazing beach are gorgeous, although they're not pink. It remains a mystery how this stretch of sand got its name.

Another good option for snorkeling fans is Grand Beach. Grand Beach can be reached from one of the many side roads alongside the airport.

Morne Rouge Beach: When driving to Morne Rouge Beach, follow the main road towards Grand Anse Beach, but veer off on the side road to Spice Island Mall rather than continuing on. Pass the mall and Cinnamon Hill Hotel, where you will find the beach.
