Grand Isle is a wonderful place to come to in the summertime, when the beach offers so much enjoyment, and of course when the kids are out of school, but it’s a shame to go home the day after Labor Day and stay away until nearly June. In Oct thru May we experience some of the the most beautiful weather one can imagine, and then too there is a serenity about the isle that gets lost in the hubbub of summer. Photography, bird watching and idle exploration of the lanes are ideal pastimes, while as in the summer; there is still the lure of the beach and fishing par excellence. Fall and winter on Grand Isle offer sport and variety to fishermen that isn’t found just anywhere. Besides, the weather cooperates for a good ten months out of the year.
All this makes Grand Isle the hidden treasure of the Gulf Coast, unique in its attractions and accessible to all. With so much of Louisiana overdeveloped, overcrowded and overpriced, it is incredible you can still find the seclusion offered on Grand Isle. Floating serenely on waters off Louisiana’s coast, the island is a paradise even native Louisianans regard as a treasured vacation destination. Grand Isle offers the common, unspoiled atmosphere of “old Louisiana” and the amazing part is that it is still affordable.
