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.

Situated in 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 aren't staying nearby. Seclusion and privacy are the features which most exemplify Grenada's beaches, but at Grand Beach, you'll find the same sense of serenity, without having to be too far removed from the city's activity.

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, public restrooms aren't available, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside. The water here is of good snorkeling quality, so grab your gear if you're looking to see what goes on beneath the surface.

Be mindful that Grand Beach's location is is a much-visited area, so make sure to get a spot!
