Grand Anse Beach - A view from our expert author
Grand Anse is Grenada’s signature beach. Over 3km in length and located some 5km to the south of St George’s, it is where you will find a number of the island’s premier resorts and luxury hotels. As it consists of fine, white powdery sand with the gentle rollers of an azure Caribbean, it is easy to understand why many of Grenada’s visitors are drawn to this spot and then very rarely move away from it again.
Grenada’s longest and most popular beach consists of fine, white powdery sand with the gentle rollers of an azure Caribbean.
Despite its enormous popularity, it never appears to be too crowded. Students from St George’s University tend to hang out at Umbrellas; always a popular spot for visitors and locals too. It can therefore be quite busy here sometimes. Looking out from Grand Anse across St George’s Harbour, you can clearly see the capital, Fort George, the Carenage, and sailing boats and motor cruisers at anchor.
