While visiting Pink Gin Beach, sunworshippers can enjoy a wide selection if watersports including snorkeling at the colorful coral reef formation. Beach goers can also find kayak rentals, a shopping center less than five miles away, and a fascinating volcanic crater lake. The wildlife here is also incredible with beautiful exotic birds and whale and dolphin watching.

Situated in the vicinity of St. George's, 1.2 miles west of Calliste, Pink Gin Beach is on the South West edge of Grenada. You should consider stopping by whether or not you're staying particularly close by. If you prefer to escape the buzz of the city, it's good to know that beaches here are generally pretty quiet. Then again, some vacationers seek out the loudest and the most active areas, and are better suited for one of the few lively beaches, like Pink Gin Beach.

How to Access The 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.

Amenities and Ambiance

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.

Of course, you could always try the shoreside restaurant right on Pink Gin Beach, which is the ultimate convenience for beachgoers. There are so many dining experiences on Grenada that visitors can partake in, but eating a delicious meal on the beach can be a particularly memorable one. Ask your hotel about picnic lunches, as some hotels offer to pack snacks for their guests' day trips. Or, you could find just what you need from cafes and street vendors en route to the beach.

There is also a snack bar here.

You will be able to use a public restroom at Pink Gin Beach. Additionally, you will have access to umbrellas and chairs here, so visitors hoping for a place to relax in the shade will not be disappointed. Fortunately, the water here is fit for snorkeling, so grab some gear if you're hoping to find some interesting marine life. To unwind and get away from it all, visit the little piece of paradise at Pink Gin Beach, which boasts quiet shores with a tranquil atmosphere.

Bear in mind that Pink Gin Beach's location is rather congested, which means you may find numerous people competing for the use of the same services.
