Beach Bars in Grenada

The beach bars on Grenada are all located in the southern part of the country.

General locations of the best beach bars in Grenada (Not to scale, locations are approximate).

Laluna Grenada Beach Bar

Part of the luxury Laluna Resort, the Laluna Beach Bar should be on your must-visit list. The open-air bar faces the west, perfectly situated to watch the sun go down as you enjoy a drink. 

The overall theme is Zen and relaxation, with Balinese-style daybeds placed around the outdoor deck. The bar is right on the white sand, with part of it covered with a thatched roof that gives off serious island vibes. 

The menu is on the pricier side (as expected at a luxury resort), but they do have a happy hour from 5:00 pm-7:00 pm each day so you can enjoy the space and the sunset even on a budget! Live music can also be enjoyed each Sunday starting at 6:00 pm.

  • Where is it: St George’s, Grenada on Portici Beach
  • Best time to go: In the evening to enjoy the sunset, or happy hour 5:00 pm-7:00 pm each day. Sundays @ 6 pm for live music.
  • What’s great about it: The location. It is steps away from the turquoise water while also being right next to the Laluna Resort pool. Facing west, it also provides excellent views of the sunset.
  • Be aware you can’t just walk up the beach to LaLuna’s. It’s located on Portici Beach which is surrounded by jutting points of landmass making your only access point the resort itself. i.e. Take a taxi!

Umbrellas Bar

Umbrellas Bar is located right on one Grenada’s most popular and scenic stretches of coastline, Grand Anse Beach. If the white, powdered sand isn’t a drawcard, the cheap drinks will be!
