Everything about this beach is PERFECT! From the sunsets to the long walks on the beach. It's very calm but be warned when a cruise ship is in it will be overpopulated with tourists. By 4pm the tourists all leave to head back to the ship so it becomes very quiet. There are a lot of public beach bars along the beach so take a walk and enjoy the scenic view.

Clean beach with clear blue sea. I was on this beach with the locals at 6 am in the sea greeting people and then with fellow tourists later that day and night.
Quiet during the week, busy on Saturday and Sunday when St George college students descend and go to Umbrellas.
Great to walk along not as easy to run on. Overall a great escape from everyday life

We were staying in a hotel along the beach and it was certainly like paradise on most days. The days cruise ships unload their guests onto it, we mostly stayed in our hotel with its beach front. The water is sensational, the blue colour is what makes you think “Caribbean” and makes you want to come back again and again. It is beautiful to wander along the beach having a drink here and there, a bite to eat, a swim ……. . Of course there are many many beautiful beaches around the globe but this is certainly one of the Must See ones. We’ll certainly try to come back one day.

Visited this beach via a water taxi for the day , cost of taxi from Grenada was $10 return.
It was a tropical rain day so the umbrellas on the beach came in handy however it was super busy and water conditions average compared to other beaches we found.
Sun bed x2 and umbrella we paid $25 so a bit expensive compared to others we had visited also with lots of people selling drinks and things.
Nice to see but too busy for us.

Stunning beach used by tourists and locals alike. Lovely chilled atmosphere and we enjoyed watching a group of local guys starting up a cricket match. There's a little market area at the south end which is perfect for picking up souvenirs - there are bars offering the local brew too, which is lovely and very inexpensive.

If you are on a cruise ship, take the water taxi back to the port. Nice little experience!

I suppose a total of three cruise ships docked at St George’s should have been a bit of a red flag. Grand Anse Bay is nearby as the crow flies but the traffic made for a tortuously slow drive there. Not the best of starts and the experience continued on foot. The beach was heaving with visitors looking for restful time – no such luck. The first shock was the cost - $25 for two sunbeds and an umbrella. The vast majority of punters were there for a few hours but no concession. We did get benefit of free wifi but judging by the comments of those around us, the service was an illusion. The icing on the cake was that if we wanted to use the toilets in the beach bar that would be $1 per visit. Pure and simple greed. I assume the business model for guys taking drinks orders was working on a commission basis. As a consequence, there was ridiculous over-provision. We were asked if we wanted a drink at least once a minute for the whole time we were there - beyond annoying. I would like to say that a dip in the sea was a pleasant diversion, sadly not. Guys trying to sell boat trips etc., cruised by a few metres out from the shore on the lookout for customers. Their craft chugged along as they scanned the beach for customers, rather than keep an eye out for swimmers. A situation that was fraught with potential danger. Overall, a wretched time. Needless to say, we will not be returning.

We walked around the port and enjoyed the views! We decided to head tonGrand Anse (since we had been there before). This time we took public transport! If you walk out of the port and go left (pass all of the outdoor vendors and go about 1/4 mile) you’ll come to the town’s bus depot!! The locals are super friendly and will direct you! There are a specific set of buses (super small transport- maybe 15 people tops). The fare was only $2USD per person one way. And all you have to do is tell the driver to give you a heads up when your stop for Grand Anse comes. It’s about 25 mins (because of the crazy traffic).

The beach is beautiful!! Half moon bay with crystal clear water! We laid out our towels and enjoyed snacks and drinks we had packed in our backpack! We spent a few hours soaking in the sun!

Hardly any peddlers in this beach.

If you get a chance to visit Grenada then you have to visit the wonder of Grenada’s fantastic beaches
This is one of the best... golden white sand .. crystal clear waters
So much to do along this beach
Plenty of areas where you can just take a quiet dip or if your looking for something completely different then there’s bars and restaurants dotted along to get a bite to eat comfortably by the sea
I could spent most of my time along this beautiful beach if I could
Definitely recommend seeing

We took a local taxi around the island to a few local spots and ended up at this beautiful beach!
You can see the cruise ship from the beach. The beach has beautiful white sand, crystal blue waters, and just overall beautiful view! When you get to the beach you will be greeted by one of the locals that work the beach area. They will get you a chair $5 and umbrella for $5, or ask to be put under a tree if any available then you have save $5 on the umbrella. My husband and I shared a chair because we spend the entire time in the water.
There is food, booze and non alcoholic drinks available. We negotiated a bucket of 6 beers for $15 instead of $20. We didnt get a deal on food. They even bring you beer to the waters edge. Definitely a great spot to check out. Sorry I didnt take any photos of the beach!

The beach itself is beautiful However it can get very crowded. We were on a cruise so we took a water taxi to the beach. You don't need to pay for any tour stuff. It is $10 pp roundtrip on the taxi and for $15 you get 2 chairs and an umbrella.
Each"section has it's people who want you to use their services
they leave you alone if you tell them to do so
A beautiful area and very relaxing
