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.

Beach Choices In The Area

You'll find a large number of beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some of these beaches, for people who enjoy the underwater scene. For detailed information about any one of these beaches click on the names of the ones you would like to learn about

Magazine Beach

A beach scene where snorkeling is a popular is Pink Gin Beach. Located behind Point Salines International Airport, Pink Gin Beach is separated from the busy airport scene by some hills. It can easily be reached by driving past the airport to the far end of Maurice Bishop Memorial Highway.

Another good choice for visitors who enjoy snorkeling is Grand Beach. Grand Beach is a thin stretch of white sand beach rimmed with trees. The lip of land that separates the beach from the bay is on the rocky side, but visitors shouldn't have trouble walking through the sand elsewhere.

Morne Rouge Beach: The calm clear waters of Morne Rouge Beach are shallow and warm, making this small and secluded beach one of the warmest shores on Grenada. There are plenty of areas shaded by trees, and because the beach is backed by a couple of hotels, beach chairs and umbrellas can easily be procured.
