Beaches in Grand Case

Reminiscent of the south of France, the beaches in Grand Case not only allow you to hear strains of locals speaking the language, but they offer the same vibrancy, with bright umbrellas protecting beach-goers from the sun.  One thing most tourists appreciate is that there is free parking both along the street and at a lot nearby.

Which Beaches Are Available?

You will find a large number of beaches to visit in and around the area. Snorkeling is an option at some locations, if some members of your party are so inclined. Click on the name of each beach to read a detailed article concerning that part of the coast.

Friar's Bay Beach

Happy Bay: A small beach with stunning white sand and crystal clear waters, this is one of the most hidden and secluded beaches on the island, but perhaps not for long. In 2014, it was listed as one of the Best Secret Beaches on Earth by Travel + Leisure Magazine.

Another location for beach-goers to consider is Petite Plage. At the north end of Grand Case Bay opposite Creole Rock is Petite Plage -- or Little Beach. This stretch of sand is very secluded and rarely visited, so a great spot for those who want to spend their beach day uninterrupted.

Anse Marcel: Anse Marcel is a beautiful beach, completely tucked away in a bay, with some of the brightest blue waters I've ever seen. The sand is soft and white and the shape of the bay calms the waves into gentle ripples.

The chart directly below lists a few details concerning the beaches that you can find in and around the area.
