Amenities and Ambiance

Tyrrel Bay is one of the more beautiful bays on Grenada, with its sweeping horseshoe shaped coastline powdered with white sands and harboring topaz colored waters. The shore is backed by a minimal amount of greenery which protects the beach from the highway.

There is also a restaurant on-location, which many Tyrrel Bay visitors find convenient and satisfying. Every destination has its own unique cuisine, and Grenada is no different. One of the most enjoyable places to try local specialties is right on the water. With this in mind, you might ask your hotel if they offer to pack picnic lunches for their guests. Otherwise, street vendors and casual walk-up eateries will have take-out dishes you can bring to the beach.

The concession stand on-site could come in handy, even if you plan to have lunch elsewhere. If available, you could also order some food from one of the local vendors who operate at or near this spot.

You won't have to worry about finding a bathroom at Tyrrel Bay because there are public restrooms. You'll find the waters off-shore to be clear and good for snorkeling, so grab some gear if you want to see the underwater world. Tyrrel Bay is a working harbour, so the area is mainly populated with locals. Visitors will find other tourists mingling with the local crowd in the waterfront bars, however.
