Menere Point

Next to the secluded Menere Bay on the east coast of Grenada is Menere Point. This beach, though it shares similar features, is smaller and draws even fewer visitors.

Located near the heart of the island of Grenada, 1.9 miles east-northeast of Bellevue, Menere Point is on the South East coast of the island, You should consider dropping by even if you aren't staying in the immediate vicinity. When you need to spend the afternoon away from tourist-filled hotspots, you should check out Menere Point, a pretty, but less popular part of the coast.

How to Access The Beach
Menere Point is accessible via a dirt road that runs through the woods.

Amenities and Ambiance

Menere Point has carved a horseshoe shape into the island's side, a coastal feature that protects the shore from too-strong surf. Instead, the dark navy waters are calm and gently wash ashore the beach's dark tan sands.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business.

Menere Point brings visitors an idyllic and peaceful place to escape, in part because the region surrounding the beach is positioned apart from more urban areas.
