Grand Beach is a wonderful spot a bit off the beaten track and certainly not on the list of "must sees" by the cruise lines and the taxi operators who meet the ships. It is on the French side and is a place a beautiful...More

With very calm water, this beach was the most placid we found. (Though I'm sure can vary on some days.) Only about 40' to 50' wide the whole length. The north end has the public pier, and community swimming beach where local children were pleasantly...More

This beach is beautiful with lots of local food options. There is still lots of hurricane damaged buildings in this area so I definitely would recommend you wearing shoes while on the beach.

We spent half a day here at the redone Rainbow Cafe which was very nice. The beach itself I loved for the calm waves (perfect for kiddos) but it’s very thin and in some spots the water comes all the way to the buildings. You...More

There is still a lot of reminisce of Hurricane Irma but the beach town is on the right side of getting back together with restaurants and shops opening up. Definitely put this beach on you stop if you want a quite, intimate beach trip.

We have been to Grand Case many times. While the restaurants and bars on the water side are mostly in ruins, the beach itself has never been better! Still one of my favourite spots in the Caribbean! Love Grand Case! Even without the Love.....,

Beautiful views, fine sand, light surf and clear, warm water make this a world class beach. The beach front bars and restaurants shut down by Irma are returning, one every three weeks or so, but the pristine beauty is now.

We stay at Le Petit Hotel right on Grand Case Beach and enjoy the sun, sand and sea on this beautiful island each year. The beach is not crowded, and is very walkable to Rainbow Cafe for drinks/food or into the town for window shopping...More

We were not there long. We stopped at the rainbow cafe for drinks and appetizer. We took some beautiful photos at sunset. The beach was beautiful.

I wouldn't normally give five stars to an area with broken public facilities, and debris in the parking lot with construction occurring everywhere, but wind the clock back a year and this community deserves it. Aim for the municipal parking lot and walk to the...More

The roads are all clear and the damage repaired. The only time travel was impaired was when the roads were partly excavated for utility installation, which should be complete by now. All wreckage and debris have been... More

The beach is public. The water is clear and most areas are clear of rocks. The best snorkeling is at the ends of the bay.
