Grenada is a mountainous Caribbean island, which gives its shoreline a ragged edge. Still, its beaches are by no means inhospitable. Travelers will find many small coves and secluded beaches to explore in addition to the more popular waterfront spots.
Beaches on Grenada come in many shapes and sizes, but also in two colors. Choose between white sand or black sand beaches during your stay. The white sands are made from flakes of coral and shells that have washed ashore, while the black sands are softer and finer.
You'll discover several beaches to consider on the island. Regardless of whether you're looking forward to people watching, or you like having more of the beach to yourself, you can find a beach that fits your preferences. Click on specific beach names for more detail concerning that particular stretch of sand.
If you like to snorkel, a beach where that is an option is Sandy Island. The beach on Sandy Island exists as an inverted crescent, scooping out into the ocean rather than into the island as is common in the creation of bays. The beach features white sand and bright blue waves, with coconut trees lining the shore.
Another good choice for those who enjoy snorkeling is Hog Island. Hog Island, off the south coast of Grenada is a favorite anchorage spot amongst sailors who are looking for a nearly uninhabited place to play. Unfortunately it is impossible to call this place secluded because many cruisers have the same idea.
Levera Beach: The wild sweep of sand that is Levera Beach boasts dramatic scenery, with its backdrop of eroded cliffs, and a mangrove swamp and a nearby pond. This beach overlooks Sugar Loaf Island, which is just offshore of this amazing coast. The waters here can be rough.

Grenada isn't just one island. The smaller islands that fall under Grenadian governance are Carriacou and Petite Martinique. On Carriacou, one of the most important beaches is L'Esterre Bay Beach. You'll only find one "beach" on Petite Martinique. It is located on the northwestern coast and is good for swimming.
The three islands that make up Grenada provide plenty of beachfront area, especially when travelers consider the small size of the country. It's important to remember that even the most crowded beaches may be secluded by Caribbean standards.
So, whether you're looking for a fun day in the water, or a bit of time enjoying the sand and sun, you'll have plenty to do among the islands that make up Grenada.
