Grenada’s resort central is Grand Anse, where the island’s beach hotels, restaurants, equipment hire outlets and bars cluster.
Idyllically set with green hills as a backdrop, the white-sand beach is lapped by turquoise water, and long enough to not feel crowded, no matter what time of day.
There are beach chairs and umbrellas for hire, vendors selling fruit cocktails to sip, calm water for swimming and dive outlets renting snorkel equipment.
The nearby market stalls sell the island’s signature spices, and there’s a choice of laid-back beach bars selling snacks and drinks.
Grand Anse beach is on Grand Anse Bay, south of St. George’s towards Grenada’s southwestern tip. Catch a water taxi from St. George’s.
