Beaches




[ Click thumbnail to enlarge ]


Grenada has many beautiful beaches. The most well-known is Grand Anse Beach, which is located fairly close to the capital St. George's on the western (leeward) side of the island. The beach is two miles long and is considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean.It is usually fairly calm, and is a favourite with both visitors and locals.

Morne Rouge Bay is better sheltered and more calm and is located a 10 minutes' walk south of Grand Anse. Along the cliff on the southern side of the beach you can easily reach the inner part of the reef, and when the water is clear it is nice for snorkling. Morne Rouge Beach is some days visited by small boats arriving from the cruise ships. When there are several cruise ships in St. George's some of these boats will certainly visit this beach bringing food, drink, and reggae or steel-band music. With the tourists come the beach salesmen and saleswomen with their spice baskets, spice necklesses, shirts etc.

Other good beaches can be found in the south and west. There are also very beautiful beaches on the northern part of Grenada, however, the currents may be strong and dangerous. Many beaches are just for the experienced swimmers.
