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.

Positioned on Caile Island, 1.1 miles south of Ronde Island, Caille Island is on the North West coast of the island, You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying in the vicinity. This beach is not just a tropical beauty, it's one of the rare "quiet" beaches on Grenada. While Caille Island may be a little more difficult to reach, it allows you to relax without being bothered by the noise of the crowds.

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, restrooms will not be available here, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot.

Caille Island provides a calm and peaceful place to escape, especially since the surrounding region is away from most urbanization.
