For many vacationers, there is one main reason to visit a Caribbean island: a flawless, sun-kissed beach. Grand Anse Beach is the perfect prescription for your wintertime blues. Relax under a wonderful blue sky with a few puffy clouds while the gentle warm surf of the Caribbean Sea washes into Grand Anse Bay. Yes, there are several resorts facing the pristine white sand. But there are far fewer people than you would expect on the island’s top-rated beach. Many claim Grand Anse Beach is also one of the best in the Caribbean. Additional good news for day trippers. This tropical paradise is only about six miles from the cruise port terminal. So, you will never lose sight of your ship.
