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.
