Perfection at its best, Grand Anse is a sublime playground for locals and tourists. A two and a half mile stretch of white soft sand curving alongside the southwest coastline of Grenada, Grand Anse is one of the most popular beaches on the island and for a good reason. Located in the town of St George, Grand Anse is well known for its turquoise clad clear waters and calm conditions and offers a variety of activities. From adventurous sports such as jet skiing, parasailing and kayaking to those of a serene nature, with secluded spots for those seeking to soak up the sun’s rays and admire the views, this is the perfect place to explore the waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Tip: Venture outside of the hotel strip, beyond the beach and sample some of the island flavours from the nearby restaurants such as Umbrellas Beach Bar, or hop on the bus for a 15 minute ride into the pulsating city centre of St George.
