Sheltered by the crescent moon shape of the coast, Grande Anse features beaches of calm waters making it a great destination for not-so-strong swimmers and snorkelers.  On land, the sand is soft and white and the beaches are baked by private homes and luxury accommodations.  It is an all around calming experience to visit this west coast destination.

If you love to snorkel, a location where that's an option is Quarantine Point Beach. On the southwestern tip of Grand Anse Bay is a little stretch of sand known as Quarantine Point Beach. This land mass juts out into the ocean, meeting the waves head on, taking the brunt of the waves so that the beach within the bay remains a calm place to play.

Another top pick for visitors who enjoy snorkeling is Parc a Boeuf Beach. Set along the southern coast of Grenada, Parc a Boeuf Beach, or Groom's Beach, is a popular stretch of sand. This is partially due to the popularity of Dr. Groom's Bar, which is set on the beach, but one can't overlook the beach's mesmerizing beauty as a contributing factor.

Magazine Beach: Magazine Beach is located behind Point Salines International Airport. It is accessible by following the main road past the airport near the Aquarium Restaurant.
