Umbrellas Beach Bar, Grenada

Umbrellas beach bar located on Grand Anse Beach in Grenada is a Beaches, Booze, and Bungalows staff favorite. In three visits to Grenada, we've been to Umbrellas at least seven times!

VIBE

Umbrellas is a bar that transitions easily from day to night. Start the day by liming on the beach near Umbrellas and wander in for lunch and a few cocktails. Before you know it, you're closing the place down. Been there, done, have the bar tab to show for it! The crowd is a mix of tourists, locals, and college kids from St. George's University, and the outdoor picnic-style tables are shared, making easy to strike up a conversation with a stranger.

The restaurant has a mix of indoor and outdoor tables and the outdoor tables are relatively shaded - appropriately enough, by umbrellas -  if you've had a bit too much sun. There's also a roof deck, which it took us several visits to discover because the outdoor seating held so much appeal. It does offer photo-worthy views of Grand Anse, so it's worth checking out, but we'll stick to the ground floor for proximity to the beach and the bathrooms.

BAR

Umbrellas has a full bar and specialty cocktails like the Rum Woo Woo and Liquid Marijuana share the menu with Caribbean classics like the Painkiller, the Goombay Smash, and the Dark 'n' Stormy. Beer and shots are plentiful and there's also a wine list, but who drinks wine at a Caribbean beach bar? Not us! Daily $10 drink specials are available.

MENU

The first time we ordered food at Umbrellas, we were in for a surprise. The nachos were served on a bed of Doritos. Yes, Doritos. Initially, we laughed and turned our noses up, then we inhaled the entire plate. And ordered another. That's right folks, Doritos nachos are incredible. Especially with alcohol. The rest of Umbrellas menu is your mix of basic bar food with some Caribbean thrown in the mix. Burgers, salads, seafood, and sandwiches comprise the bulk of the menu and the lighthouse burger with BBQ sauce and pineapple is one of our favorites.
