Grand Anse beach, Grenada – (pictured above)
Grand Anse beach is one of the most famous Grenadian landmarks and is overlooked by some of the island’s best hotels and grand houses. Located on two miles of white sand this sheltered bay is a favourite with both visitors and locals. Known for its serene and calm conditions, Grand Anse is on the western leeward side of the island sheltering it from high waves, strong currents and winds.
Grand Anse beach is the perfect base for exploring above and below the water. The Dive centre on the beach organizes trips to the island’s famous dive sites which include Bianca C, Shark Reef, Hema1 and the Grenada Marine Park. Snorkelling kayaking and boat trips are also available.
Grand Anse is on the western side of the island and easily found as the main road runs in front of it. Point Saline International Airport is 5 miles away. The capital Georgetown is 7 miles away, from where you can hire a water taxi straight to the beach

Just a short distance south of Grand Anse beach is the more secluded and peaceful Morne Rouge Beach. Located on a serene tropical bay, this is the perfect Grenadian beach for relaxation. With Grenada’s newest beach resort, Kalinago Beach Resort over looking the bay, the beach is perfect for families.
Morne Rouge is the first bay south of Grand Anse, and just a short walk from the larger beach there. It is 15 minutes from St George’s
La Sagesse Beach (above)
La Sagesse is often described as one of the most romantic locations in the Caribbean and the dramatic crescent-shaped beach lies in an area famed for its wildlife and nature trails. A mere half-mile of sand and sea, this is a laid-back hideaway where visitors can kick off their shoes and forget the rest of the world.
La Sagesse is off the beaten track so arriving by car is a good idea. Located in the parish of St David’s, on the east of the island, it is 40 minutes drive from St George’s. Public transport is also available from St George’s, and Grand Anse
