Paradise Beach

Paradise Beach is located on the west coast of Grenada, near Hillsborough and Tyrrel Bay. Although there are a few shops, hotels, and restaurants within a close proximity, the beach is calm and quiet.

Situated toward the center of the island of Carriacou, Paradise Beach is on the West edge of the island, You might think about stopping by even if you are not staying very close. Visitors will find that, although Paradise Beach is by no means secluded, it's not the rowdiest beach on Grenada either. This makes it a good option for families who want to visit a somewhat lively beach without having to fight other beachgoers for a spot in the sand.

How to Access The Beach
Follow the main road near Joan's Beach Bar and park in the sand.
