Climbing out of a dinghy onto a deserted strip of beach is a feeling best described as “pinch me”. That’s the feeling I got when my feet sunk deeply into the brownish sand of Anse La Roche on the Grenadian island of Carriacou.

After checking out of Grenada waters on Carriacou, Captain Matt wanted to stop at a special slice of paradise before we headed north to Union Island to anchor for the night. The slice of paradise? Anse La Roche. He slowed the Diamant and pulled her into a calm cove that was surrounded by lush green hills that transitioned into a secluded beach before meeting the sea. It was time to dinghy to the beach, camera gear and a cooler full of cold Carib in tow. Life was perfect.

Anse La Roche and Carriacou are the stars of this episode of Island Lime Videos. You’ll see several different angles of the beach and be relaxed by the rhythmic sound of the Caribbean sea spilling up onto the sand. No fancy graphics, no bald guy rambling about lord knows what, just the sound of the waves. If it were any more real you’d be there.

Walking up and down the beach looking for the perfect spots to set up is hard work. Constantly dodging crab holes and random rocks can be tricky and wear a Castaway out. It was soon time to join my new Diamant friends in the water with a cold Carib and soak up the naked natural beauty of Anse La Roche.
