Conference Bay

The curve of of Conference Bay that leads to rocky edges that jut out into the Atlantic Ocean makes it a great locale for site seeing. The view is one of the best on the island.

Situated on the northeastern side of the island of Grenada, 0.3 miles southeast of La Poterie, You should think about stopping by whether or not you're staying particularly close by. There are advantages to visiting a beach that isn't crowded into a major metropolitan area; beaches less-traveled like Conference Bay are usually more relaxing than those overrun with fellow travelers.

How to Access The Beach

Just southeast of the town of La Poterie and the cape known as Artiste Point, this is a well known area of Grenada and you should have no trouble getting here.

Amenities and Ambiance

Trees line the thin stretch of sand that makes up Conference Bay beach, providing shade but not a lot of space for enjoying the sand. The waters are warm and clear but sometimes choppy and there's no snorkeling opportunities here.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.

Conference Bay brings visitors an angelic and tranquil environment, especially since the region surrounding the beach is not heavily urbanized.
