Caille Island

Callie Island is a very small island off the northeast coast of Grenada. It's a beautiful spot, with almost no buildings or development of any kind.

Located on Caile Island, 1.1 miles south of Ronde Island, Caille Island is on the North West coast of the island, You should consider dropping by even if you are not staying in the immediate vicinity. There are plenty of advantages to visiting a beach that hasn't been "discovered" by thousands of tourists; relatively untouched parts of the coast like Caille Island make great places to spread out and relax.

How to Access The Beach
Callie Island is off the coast of Grenada and so is only accessible by boat. Also, the best beach spot is on the other side of the island from Grenada, so you'll have to make your way around if you want to enjoy the best beach locale here.

Amenities and Ambiance

The north side of Callie is where the best beach spot is, a tucked away patch of sand with choppy waters. The beach features tan sand and deep blue waters. If you love to feel isolated in paradise, it's worth a venture to this island.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot.

Caille Island offers a calm and peaceful experience, in part because the region surrounding the beach is free of city-life and traffic.
