Grenada Island is also called the Spice Island is located of the north coast of Venezuela in South America. It is a three island nation together with Carriacou and Petite Martinique
Grenada is laid back and relaxed and you can “hide” from the mundane noise of every day’s life. The beaches, the spicy food and above all the amiable people will make you either stay longer or come back again and again.
There are many Grenada Beaches to please the best beaches connoisseurs. The beaches are surrounded of white powdered sand and crystal clear waters that will take your breath away.
There are close to fifty beautiful beaches in Grenada. The beaches are public property, meaning that the public must have access to the beach even if a private property occupies the land next to it. Before building a new beachfront hotel or resort, proof has to be shown on how the developer will provide such access.
A few of the most important beaches
This one is the favorite of many visitors. It offers 2 miles of white sand sheltered by a bay. Many of the famous hotels are located next to it. In my personal opinion it is one of the most beautiful of the Caribbean Beaches. It is located on the west of the island, meaning that being on the leeward side; the waters are calm and great for Family Vacations for its swimming, snorkeling and many more water sports.
There are many restaurants and sport centers as well as rental chairs and many other amenities. This beach can be reaches by bus or water taxis.
This beach is located south of Grand Anse Beach; it is more secluded and small. It is ideal for those that want to find some solitude and less water sports and activities.
