Antoine Bay is conveniently located on Grenada's east coast. There is no development here, which means there is nothing to disturb the natural beauty of the coastline except the nearby road.

Positioned on the northeastern coast of the island of Grenada, 1.6 miles east of Belmont, You might want to drop by even if you are not staying very close. Love beach-going but hate the crowds? Extra space is just one of the perks that comes with finding a beach that isn't crowded into a major metropolitan area; beautiful but out-of-the-way beaches like Antoine Bay are usually more relaxing than those overrun with fellow travelers.

How to Access The Beach
This beach is visible from the road and runs the length of Antoine Bay. There is no public parking, but you can leave you vehicle right along the road and walk out onto the beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

The waters on this side of the island are choppier, so care is necessary while swimming. The strip of sand here is very thin and gray and palms and sea grape line the inland edge of the beach.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.
