If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I am completely and totally obsessed with the island of Grenada. I visited last year and again in May and I honestly did not want to leave. One of my favorite things to do on the island is lounge on their countless beautiful beaches. In fact, I’ve heard reports of there being 45 beaches in Grenada. Here’s an interesting fact for you; there are no private beaches in Grenada so if you see a beach that you like, you are free to enjoy it. Grenada beaches are amazing because they’re pristine, unspoiled, and peaceful. In this blog post, I’m sharing my favorite Grenada beaches.
I’m definitely planning to visit Grenada again in the near future. And when I do, I will be exploring other beaches to see if I should add them to my list of favorites.
Have you visited Grenada? What are some of of your favorite beaches? Curious about Grenada? See my recent post on Melanin Majority with recommendations of what to do and where to stay.
Paradise Beach, Carriacou
This gem of a beach is located on the island of Carriacou. Carriacou is one of the three islands that make up Grenada. Paradise beach is located in the L’Esterre Bay area, which is on the west coast of the island. We were literally the only ones on the beach. There is a restroom on the beach which is very convenient however, you do have to pay to use it and/or take a shower. I believe that it was $1 US to use the bathroom and $3 US to take a shower. Although paying to use the restroom was the weirdest thing I’ve ever heard of, I was very happy to have that amenity on the beach. Additionally, there were a couple of restaurants right on the beach. You can grab a bit to each and even order a rum punch to enjoy on the beach.
La Sagesse Beach, Grenada
Located in the parish of St. David, this beach is off the beaten path. There’s a restaurant right on the beach with great drinks. La Sagesse Beach is adjacent to a nature center which offers unique opportunities such as bird watching and walking trails that are perfect for nature lovers. I totally found this beach by accident. I was told that Grenada has several black sand beaches. During my search for one of them, a local recommended La Sagesse. Apparently, they consider it black sand but I think that it’s really a mixture of gray and white sand. Although it wasn’t what I initially was looking for, it was a great retreat from the bustle of the St. Georges area.
Grand Anse Beach – Grenada
Grand Anse beach definitely makes my personal list for favorite beach. It repeatedly makes the best beaches in the world list. It is 2 miles of white sand. I’ve been to various parts of Grand Anse beach and it has been a peaceful retreat every time. Despite its popularity, this beach is never overcrowded. There have been times where I’ve had the beach all to myself. Lord knows I love a secluded beach and this definitely fits that definition. The water is a beautiful turquoise blue. It’s an amazing contrast of beach and the lush mountains in the distance. Grand Anse Beach is literally what postcards are made of.
