By visiting the mesmerizing island of Grenada, you can enjoy one of the most incredible natural wonders of the world. This beautiful island features more than 45 beaches full of countless opportunities for adventure, snorkeling, or just plain relaxing. Even better, all beaches on this island are public. That means no matter how exclusive or expensive looking the area, it is open for all to enjoy. In fact to protect this right, Grenada has initiated guidelines for all developers requiring them to provide an access point for the public to get to and enjoy relaxing on the beach or spending the day snorkeling in the water. However, since all Grenada's beaches are public there are no nude beaches, so be sure to bring your swimsuit.

Grand Anse Beach

Grand Anse Beach

Located on two incredible miles of white sand and sunshine, this sheltered bay has become a favorite for both visitors and locals alike. This beautiful beach is heavily featured in advertisements about Grenada and its islands, and is located conveniently next to several major hotels. Grand Anse is also well known for having the most serene and calm conditions since the beach is located on the western leeward side of the island sheltering it from high waves, strong currents, and winds.

Grand Anse beach in is also the perfect place to explore the water. There are opportunities for everyone from the casual scuba diver, to the adrenaline junkie who thrives on water sports. However, if you would rather leave the water to the fish, you can also experience the native Grenada atmosphere by visiting the local vendor market or have a relaxing meal at one of the islands authentic restaurants.

Another popular beach location both for tourists and locals alike is Bathway Beach. Located on the North Eastern end of the island, Bathway offers a fairly large amount of sheltered water where even the non-swimmer can feel comfortable soaking. However, this beach is on the Atlantic Coastline, which means that at certain times of the year the water can get quite choppy.

Levera Beach

Levera Beach

Located a little further north of Bathway Beach is this gem with a perfect view of Sugar Loaf Island situated only a couple hundred yards offshore. The beach is usually deserted making it the perfect private getaway. However, the road to get there is quite rough so you may want to rent a four wheel drive before attempting to access this beach.

Sauteurs Beach

A perfect white sand beach located on the Northern Coast of Grenada, this is the beach to visit if you want some privacy but do not have access to a four wheel drive vehicle. One of the lesser know Grenada Beaches, you will quite often find this beach empty as it is not quite as popular as Levara or Bathway. Don t let this lack of visitors push you away though, this beach is still the perfect location to relax during a tour of the island and has a beautiful view of the surrounding islands to the north.
