Eww talk about the worst possible picture of GA Beach in Grenada.About how far of a walk to this beach? How's the snorkeling? Chair rentals available? Rest rooms?
Head south of the water taxi dock for the most beautiful sand and hardly any people. Its almost 2miles long so leave the rat race behind and experience the beach as it should be experienced with very few tourists and beautiful people
Stay at the dock or head north if you want loads of tourists and the wash end of the beach
Great shame...Brings to mind a great advert I saw for beer....
About how far of a walk to this beach? How's the snorkeling? Chair rentals available? Rest rooms?We would like to know the answers to these questions, too. ANYONE???
About how far of a walk to this beach? How's the snorkeling? Chair rentals available? Rest rooms?Can't walk to it unless you really like walking long long distances in heat!! Take a water taxi or a land taxi. Much much quicker and easily amenable. Snorkeling in beautiful clear water but no coral [If you want reefs go to either end of the beach and be prepared to swim out a way]. chairs yes, rest rooms yes
Is there a beach walking distance to the port? I think there is, but i'm not sure of what it's called. Thanks for any help.Nope - take a water taxi or a land taxi. Grande Anse Beach is the most famous - consistently voted int he top-10 worldwide but to really experience it don't stay by the dock move further south away fromt he crowds.
That's what it's called, Grand Anse...the last cruise we were on, one of the guys who worked on the ship said to us he's walking to the beach, so we thought it was kind of close...but i just googled it, and it does look like far. Any idea how much for the water taxi, and where you can catch them?When you come off your ship and go inside the terminal there is a water taxi man who will direct you tot he water taxis. two minute walk to them and it was US$4 per person last year. If there is a large group in your party may be better to get a land taxi US$25/hr and see some sights from the forts before heading to the beach.
