Has anyone ever walked from the cruise port to Grand Anse Beach?
If so, how long is the walk?
Any directions would be kindly appreciated.
Thanks,

It's approximately 4.5 miles. This summer I stayed in a hotel that was about a mile from town and 3 miles from Grand Anse based on the signs near the hotel. The cruise terminal is about .5 miles from the carenage, and I calculate the terminal to be about .5 miles from there.

It's definitely walkable but you can take the local bus for 2.50 EC($1 US). Mush quicker and you won't melt!!!!

When we bought tickets for the water taxi a few weeks ago, it was $6.00 per person round trip.
