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.

Situated on the island of Grenada, 2.3 miles east of Thebaide, Crochu Harbour is on the South East coast of the island, You should consider dropping by regardless of whether you're staying very close. Even if you love being in the middle of all the action, there are some perks to visiting a beach that isn't lined with high-rise hotels; secluded parts of the coast like Crochu Harbour are perfect when you need a break from the typical tourist scene.

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.

Please note that public restrooms are not available, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot. Fortunately, the water here is fit for snorkeling, so grab your equipment if you want to check out what lies beneath the surface.

Crochu Harbour offers visitors a calm and peaceful place to escape, especially since the surrounding area is more rural than urban.
