Grand Beach

As the smaller sister to nearby Grand Bay, Grand Beach is located in the popular vacation town of Grand Anse. In fact, the beach is so close to the airport that vacationers can almost step off the jet way and into the sand.

Located on the southwestern part of the vicinity of St. George's, 1.3 miles west-southwest of Calliste, Grand Beach is on the South West coast of Grenada. You might want to drop by even if you are not staying in the immediate vicinity. Though not very urbanized, many folks still find this a great destination since it's removed from certain noisier areas.

How to Access The Beach

Grand Beach can be reached from one of the many side roads alongside the airport.

Amenities and Ambiance

Grand Beach is a thin stretch of white sand beach rimmed with trees. The lip of land that separates the beach from the bay is on the rocky side, but visitors shouldn't have trouble walking through the sand elsewhere.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business. You'll find the waters off-shore to be of good snorkeling quality, so grab your gear if you are looking to do some underwater exploration.

Since Grand Beach is of course located in an active, busy area, you might want consider the time when you plan your visit.
