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 outskirts 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 think about stopping by whether or not you're staying particularly close by. Those of you who want the best of both worlds——a sense of seclusion, but the option for activity—— might enjoy stopping by Grand Beach for a few hours. It's a little bit removed from Grenada's urban areas, but it also doesn't completely lack a social atmosphere.

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, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot. The water here is fit for snorkeling, so grab some equipment if you're hoping to find some interesting marine life.

Bear in mind that the region in which Grand Beach is located is an urban area, so plan accordingly.
