Granville Beach

Why spend just a day at the beach when you can spend the night as well? Granville is unique amongst the beaches of Trinidad because it serves as not only a popular swimming hole but a favorite camp site as well. Be warned, however, that there are no lifeguards, so night time swimming is discouraged.

Located on the southwestern edge of the island of Trinidad, 0.6 miles north-northwest of Granville, You should consider dropping by regardless of whether you are staying very close. You will typically find the beach to be rather roomy, since the surrounding region and the beach itself are not extremely crowded.

How to Access The Beach
Take Southern Main Road to Granville Road, then turn left onto Coromandel Road. A paved parking lot is available.

Amenities and Ambiance

The sands of Granville Beach are soft and dark tan in hue, while the water is aquamarine, verging on green. Typically the water is clear enough that you can see to the bottom, but heavy rainfall is known to stir up the sand and make it cloudy in appearance.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business.

If you happen to favor beaches that bring visitors a calm haven, then you may want to try Granville Beach; it is tucked away in a more natural area of the region.
