Grenada is one of the southernmost islands in the chain of Caribbean Islands, Trinidad and Tobago are the only major islands further south on the route to South America. Grenada is home to dozens of incredible beaches, 45 of them to be exact, and every single beach on the island is open to the public, a fact that is protected by law. Whenever anyone builds a beachfront home on the island they are always required to ensure that there is an area on their land which allows public access to the beautiful beach.
There are beaches to suit every need or wish on Grenada; you will find beaches that are perfect for snorkeling, others for swimming, and beaches that are known for the most beautiful sunsets. Morne Rouge Beach is best known for not being as well known as the others, meaning that Morne Rouge is one of Grenada’s quietest, most secluded beaches. It isn’t overrun with hotels or shops and only houses one small hotel. If you’re looking to spend time on a quiet beach with fewer crowds and calm water, this is the place. The water here is shallow and warm; Morne Rouge is the perfect beach to visit with children. On the other end of the spectrum is Grand Anse Beach, located just north of Morne Rouge on the west coast of Grenada. Grand Anse is home to several hotels and is a favorite spot for both tourists and island residents. On Grand Anse you can enjoy restaurants, bars, go scuba diving and catch water taxis, or you can simply relax and experience what is considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean.
