Pink Gin Beach
Pingouin Beach a.ka Pink Gin Beach gets its name from the fashionable UK cocktail which consist of Gin and a dash or two of Angostura Bitters. It’s the English way to do Gin.
One look at the pinkish sand on Pink Gin beach, and you will see that this beach was appropriately named. Pink Gin boasts a peaceful atmosphere, and pristine waters. Very attractive and fun for singles, couples, or the whole family.
Pin Gin beach is south of the popular Grand Anse Beach and Morne Rouge Beach. In fact it is the furthest south of all the popular Grenada Beaches. While you will share this beach with other guests from nearby hotels, you won’t find that many locals as say Grand Anse Beach. So if you are looking for more local interaction you will be better of at one of the beaches higher up.
Getting To Pink Gin
- Pink Gin beach is located behind the hills at Point Salines International Airport
