Fodor's Expert Review Baie de Grand Case
Along this skinny stripe of a beach bordering the culinary capital of Grand Case, the old-style gingerbread architecture sometimes peeps out between the bustling restaurants and boutiques. The sea is calm, and there are tons of fun lunch options from bistros to beachside barbecue stands (called lolos). Several of the restaurants rent chairs and umbrellas; some include their use for lunch patrons. In between there is a bit of shopping—for beach necessities but also for the same kinds of handicrafts found in the Marigot market. Amenities: food and drink; toilets. Best for: swimming; walking.
