Fodor's Review

A residential and commercial area about 5 miles (8 km) south of downtown St. George's, Grand Anse is named for the world-renowned beach it surrounds. Grenada's tourist facilities—resorts, restaurants, some shopping, and most nightlife—are concentrated in this general area. Grand Anse Beach is a 2-mile (3-km) crescent of sand, shaded by coconut palms and sea grape trees, with gentle turquoise surf. A public entrance is at Camerhogne Park, just a few steps from the main road. Water taxis carry passengers between the Esplanade in St. George's and a jetty on the beach. St. George's University, which for years held classes at its enviable beachfront location in Grand Anse, now has its sprawling main campus in True Blue, a nearby residential community. The university's original beachside building in Grand Anse is currently used for student housing.
