Galby Bay

Galby Bay is located along the southeast coast of Grenada. Although this is one of the larger and more popular beaches in the area, it remains largely uncrowded.

Located on the island of Grenada, 2.3 miles east of St. Davids, Galby Bay is on the South East coast of the island, You should consider dropping by whether or not you are staying in the vicinity. Galby Bay is a distinguishable relaxation spot because it's one of the best spots for escaping the typical tourist haunts. Other nearby beaches you'll come across on Grenada may provide just as many amenities as Galby Bay, but tend to be more crowded because they're frequented by tourists looking for a lively scene.

How to Access The Beach
A long, bumpy dirt road through the forest leads to Galby Bay. Four wheel drive is recommended.

Amenities and Ambiance

Galby Bay features pristine tan colored sand backed by miles of trees. Parts of the shore are a bit rocky, and to one side is a fresh water pond.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun. You'll find the waters off-shore to be fit for snorkeling, so bring along some gear if you've been hoping to get in some underwater exploration.

Galby Bay offers those who visit a calm and serene escape, especially since the surrounding area is more rural than urban.
