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 near the center of the island of Grenada, 2.3 miles east of St. Davids, Galby Bay is on the South East edge of the island, You might want even if you aren't staying very close. Galby Bay stands out because it's perfect for escaping the hustle of Grenada's urban areas.

How to Access The Beach

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.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, 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 of good snorkeling quality, so grab some gear if you're hoping to see what lies beneath the surface.
