Adventure in Grenada
With more than 45 beautiful beaches to choose from and all of them public property Grenada sets a high standard for tropical relaxation. As a volcanic island, Grenada has an irregular coastline, marked by many small bays and inlets, so an intrepid beach-seeker is bound to find his or her own private stretch of sand.
To enjoy the crown jewel in Grenada's sandy crown, head for Grand Anse two miles of white sand in a sheltered bay. Lying on the western (leeward) side of the island, Grand Anse is usually calm and clear, and the warm, blue-green Caribbean waters are a favorite of locals and visitors alike.
A number of luxury resorts line Grand Anse which is a big plus if you're looking for a beachfront cottage. The popularity of this beach, however, makes for a steady population of sun-worshippers not to mention vendors, hawking their goods and services.
If you're looking for a more solitary experience, head just south of Quarantine Point and make camp on the beach at Morne Rouge Bay a smaller, calmer, and more private beach. No dive shops or hobie-cat rentals here and only one hotel. The relatively shallow water makes for a warmer swim, too.
