Crochu Harbour

Set on Grenada's east coast Crochu Harbour enjoys calm waters and coral reef that makes snorkeling a positive experience. Set far out from anything that could be remotely considered a busy city, this beach often remains empty enough to make it a secluded paradise for those who make the trip.

How to Access The Beach
Crochu Harbour is accessible via a long, but well kept, dirt road.

Amenities and Ambiance

The beach of Crochu Harbour has soft, white to tan colored sand that stretches along the coast in a small arch. Those sands are backed by brush and trees which stretches out for seemingly miles on end. And the most important part of any beach, the water, is an emerald green that only becomes deeper in hue the further out you venture.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside. Fortunately, the water here is of good snorkeling quality, so bring along some equipment if you're hoping to find some interesting marine life.

Crochu Harbour provides an idyllic and relaxing experience, as the surrounding region is far from urbanized.
