Grenada Beach 3rd Most Beautiful Tropical Beach In World Says The Times

October 16, 2009Article by Ray Withers

La Sagesse, Grenada has been voted the third most beautiful tropical beach in the entire world by the Sunday Times. The article reads:

Here’s a beach so pretty that it prompted a putsch. When Lord Brownlow, a cousin of the Queen, blocked access to La Sagesse in 1974, furious locals stormed the gates — and Grenada’s revolutionary government later seized its sands for the people.

You can’t blame them. This is the back-country Caribbean beach extraordinaire, hidden at the end of a rocky track in the southeast corner of the island.

There’s a mangrove pond where monkeys dangle, a blissed-out beachfront diner serving zingy creole conch… and almost nobody else

This is a testament to all the beaches in Grenada according to Property Frontiers. Ben Jeffries, the firm’s sourcing manager said:

“We have always recommended that people who are considering buying a Caribbean property make a trip or several to the various regions and countries that they fancy, and find the paradise that best suits them. Caribbean beaches are almost all world class, the water is the same wherever you go; turquoise and warm and the sand is white and also warm between your toes.

So, while La Sagesse has been judged 3rd most beautiful by the author(s) of the Times article, Bacolet Bay may have the ideal combo that makes it the number 1 beach for what you family needs in its version of a tropical paradise.”

Bacolet Bay is a beach-front 5 star resort set in 41 acres of tropical gardens and has state of the art facilities. The units come with full rental management and guaranteed rental yields of 10% for the first 3 years. Owners are entitled to 30 days free usage. Studio cottages, 1 and 2 bedroom villas and 2 bedroom apartments are available and prices start from £278,287.

Like most luxury property in Grenada and the Caribbean (barring a few exceptions), Bacolet Bay is priced at much the same as it would have been before the downturn. This is because luxury Caribbean property was always primarily bought by equity rich lifestyle buyers, which have remained fairly active during the downturn. That said the developer is attempting to sweeten the deal on Bacolet Bay units with the following by offering the following:

Mortgage repayments and maintenance fees paid for the first three years
Guaranteed rental of 10% for the first 3 years is paid upfront on completion
Furniture packs are included in the price
