This beach is the best beach to see the leatherbacks laying their eggs, around midnight visit with the local guides. If you return in daylight to swim please watch the strong currents.

Go in March/April when the Leatherbacks come ashore to lay their eggs on the same beach they were hatched 25 years previously. With marine biologists' supervision, you can sit with them and touch them while they go into a hormone induced trance.. They use the horizon to find their way back to the water and never return to the eggs... More

I really liked my time here. I went for a few hours and it was empty. I also did go during the week which I would recommend if you value peace and tranquility. I would recommend watching your valuables since you might be by yourself. We parked our car where there a few people that had vendor stands. We did... More

An amazing place for a taste of Pure Grenada. The drive up to it via the west coast is stunning. All the colors of the rainbow are experienced..... One you get there, protected bathing in the form of a reef which protects the little ones from the waves.......Look up Paradise in the dictionary, you'll see a picture of this place....

Located beyond Bathway Beach (popular with locals and church groups) Levera has a contrasting remoteness which is appealing. Famous for turtle egg-laying and hatching.

This is a spot used for hanging out and having a picnic with friends and family. We visited after the turtle season but enjoyed it none the less. The beach is bath-able but bot recommended due to the strong current. Worth a visit for the view of the different islets and snorkeling if you're a strong swimmer.

Up until this point I had had a great holiday in Grenada, but seeing the turtles on the beach was the icing on the cake! How glorious it was to see Gods creation coming up onto the beach to lay their eggs after digging a burrow for what seemed like hours. A magnificent sight and one Ill fondly remember for... More

We were really excited about this trip and made the 3 hour round trip on good reports, but in reality we were really disappointed. The set up is fine but the guides were annoyingly controlling barking orders not to use cameras even though they has red light night vision as they had asked for. The guide had one low red... More

This is a beautiful beach during the day but if you happen to be in Grenada during the leatherback turtle nesting season and we were, it is even better at night! We went on a turtle nesting tour with Caribbean Horizons and spent 4 hours on the beach at night and saw many turtles. The night sky on the beach... More

The only beach in Grenada where leatherback turtles arrive, lay their eggs and return back to the Atlantic ocean from March/April until June/July every year. The beach is long and faces Sugar Loaf Island and Sandy Island. The beach is open to public during day time and secured at night to prevent poachers and the general public to harm the... More
