Grand Case - The "Gourmet Beach"of French St Martin

Grand Case Beach, in French called "Plage de Grand Case", is a sweeping curve of a very pretty, one mile long, white sandy beach with quite calm waters. The beach is awesome for swimming and has some nice snorkeling spots towards either end of the beach, or around the reef at "Créole Rock".

This very Caribbean beach is unique as it combines beach fun with village life.The bay of Grand Case is the perfect place for a sunset stroll. The sunset views are simply magnificent.
The bay has also a wonderful view of neighboring Anguilla Island and Créole Rock.

The beach is also home of several beach bars, restaurants and small hotels, although the majority are still under restoration after devastation from hurricane Irma. Frugal travelers will appreciate the beachside casual eateries, the famous "Lolos", serving grilled lobster, chicken, ribs, fish and other local treats from the BBQ
.

Grand Case is, indeed, best known for fine dining. Before the hurricane hit the island in Sept. 2017, the Grand Case Boulevard and the beach were lined with restaurants that built up the image of "The Gourmet Capital of the Caribbean".

Today, most of them are still under restoration. Some of the best however reopened, such as The Bistrot Caraibes, La Villa and The Spiga Cafe.

Only a very few rental apartments (no villas!) are located in the central village area. Most accommodation at moderate rates can be found at the Northern and Southern end of the village.

Grand Case has a perfect mix of attractions for truly Caribbean vacation. It is as much Caribbean as you can get and at the same time has all the flavors of French 'haute cuisine' and 'savoir vivre'.

You can find food and accommodation at very reasonable rates, and if your budget allows, first class dining and luxurious condos are available, too.
