Very long golden beach with clear blue waters and tropical trees. An amazing scenery that can take your breath away. Some amenities are available at the entrance, with parking, toilets and showers, and even a few restaurants and a bar.

What a wonderful beach. We ate lunch from fish shack #12. Thomas was such a wonderful host. I am handicapped and he helped me all the way down to the beach. We had a wonderful lunch of res snapper and shrimp. I had a pina colada out of the pineapple that was soooo good. Highly recommend.

Easy to access. Wonderful place to visit if you like to sightseeing. Amazing beach with wonderful waves (personally, it is not recommended for small kids), though is not deep (not to worry). Kind of romantic during the sunset. Great services and food!

One of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. Great access and facilities. Best to go during the week as weekends are totally mobbed.

Playa Grande (grand beach) is an awesome, big, nice, clean and beautiful beach. Good for the whole family. Water completely clear, you can see the white sand under your feet. Waves for all kind of people. I strongly recommend this beach, now this beach pass to the number two of my ranking of beach.

The clear blue water, almond colored sands, lots palm trees and lush vegetation growing on the cliffs are a sight to behold- a tropical dream. We rented lounge chairs for 100 RD ($2.22 US) on a weekday. The waves were perfect and we had a great time riding the waves both with and without boogie boards.We brought our own lunch... More
