Frommer's describes Grand Anse as "the granddaddy" of Grenada's 45 beaches, but that's an understatement. This two-mile stretch of creamy-white sand overlooks a sheltered, azure-hued bay where bright red and yellow fishing boats burst with color. Numerous hotels, restaurants, and shops act as a convenient backdrop to this postcard-perfect scene, making this a great home base for sun-seeking visitors.

Recent visitors love this beach, but they do warn that local vendors' aggressive sales pitches can put a damper on a relaxing day in the sun. To avoid any conflicts, just sternly say "No, thank you" (unless you actually want to make a purchase).

Grand Anse Beach lies along the southwestern coast of Grenada Island, roughly six miles south of St. George's. You can reach the beach by car, minibus, or water taxi. You're welcome to explore the beach at any time, day or night, and the sands are free of charge.
