To many, the optimal time to go to the beach is during the summer months.
For those who enjoy less crowded beaches and temperatures that won’t scorch you, the winter may be a great option for your beach vacation.
With its beautiful beaches, Grand Isle, Louisiana is a great place to head to when the cold just gets too unbearable and you need to get away for a bit.
The weather at Grand Isle during winter months remain suitable enough for enjoying the beaches and sunbathing. And, with less crowds, you’ll have more space in which to relax.
Ready for some spectacular winter fishing?
Grand Isle is also known as one of the top fishing spots around.
There are over 280 fish species are to be found in the waters around Louisiana’s largest sport fishing resort town.
The winter is actually a great time to fish at Grand Isle… especially for those who don’t like waiting in lines and contending with large crowds of both tourists and fishermen.
The fish tend to feed closer to the surface, as the water isn’t so hot at the top like it is during the warmer months.
You will most likely get more 1-on-1 attention with the numerous fishing charters, guides, and marinas in the area. And don’t be afraid to ask the local anglers for some insider advice.
When it comes to lodging, there are plenty of options available. Coastal Realty Group can help you find the perfect waterfront property with boat access that will make your winter fishing even more enjoyable and convenient.
Don’t just take our word for it.
We love Grand Isle, and believe it’s one of the best winter retreats available. But don’t just take our word for it.
Yahoo! named Grand Isle one of the top 10 winter beach retreats in America. They report average highs in December and January as 67 and 63 degrees respectively.
From the article:
“In the winter, the population of this barrier island off Louisiana’s Gulf Coast shrinks back down to its 1,600 permanent residents from its summer high of 14,000. But temperatures remain warm enough to sunbathe, and you can do so without the crowds.”

Think summer is the ONLY time to visit the beach?
Don’t feel left out if you couldn’t make it out this past summer. Fall beach vacations can be a great option for many reasons.
Read on to see why you might even consider fall-time to be the optimal time for your next beach outing.
- Less crowds
The summer is the peak time for the beach, and consequently, you’ll have to share the beach and attractions with throngs of other vacationers. During the fall, you’ll have less competition for beach space and restaurant seating.
- Lower rates
You’ll usually find lower rates for rentals in the fall than in the summer, so you’ll be able to use the extra funds for more souvenirs or fancier restaurants, or you can simply pocket the savings for next time.
Related to the last reason, the fishing charter rates might also be cheaper in the fall. Also, with potentially less clients, they might be able to provide even more 1-on-1 attention. Check with the local charters for more details.
- Delightful weather
Now this one might be up for debate, but for those who enjoy cooler climates, the fall time can be hard to beat. Imagine blissfully strolling down the beach without fear of scorching heat. (That said, be sure to bring layers of clothing so you can dress up or down as the need arises.)
- Fall-only events
There are some events that only happen during the fall months, so check the local calendars to see what interesting things can be seen or done during those times.

Think you need to be at home to enjoy Halloween? Think again!
You can certainly have a great time at the beach while still getting in the spirit (yes, pun intended) of All Hallow’s Eve.
The following are 5 ways you can jazz up that pumpkin to celebrate the spookiest time of the year at the beach.
- Decorate your pumpkins with a beach theme
Give your pumpkins a beachy vibe by painting them white, brown, and/or blue. Decorate with sand dollars and assorted shells.
- Try different cutouts
Instead of a face, try carving shapes befitting the setting. Some ideas are a boat, an anchor, a palm tree, a starfish, a seahorse, a fish, stylized waves, shells, etc. You’re only limited by your imagination… and your carving skills.
- Cool off your drinks
Instead of making a jack-o’-lantern, fashion a drink cooler out of your pumpkin. Fill with ice and keep your favorite drinks nice and cool.
- Make a substitution
Forego the pumpkin and use a pineapple instead. Imagine a menacing jack-o’-lantern’s face carved on tropical fruit. Your family and friends will get a kick out of that.
- Use sand
Of course, you can get creative with what’s already all around you at the beach. Craft some spook-tastic jack-o’-lanterns in the sand.

Here are some easy tips to follow to ensure you stay safe while you’re enjoying yourself at the beautiful beaches at Grand Isle, LA.
1. Protect yourself against the sun
Everyone likes to be out in the sun. However, don’t overdo it. Remember to use sunscreen, and reapply as directed by the sunscreen. Find some shade if you’re feeling uneasy after extended exposure to the sun and heat.
2. Drink lots of fluids
Being out in the heat can lead to dehydration. Be sure to drink plenty of fluids. The more water the better. Plan beforehand and have an appropriate number of drinks ready.
3. Don’t swim alone
Avoid swimming alone, especially if you want to venture outward a bit. If kids are present, be sure there’s always adult supervision.
4. Shade your eyes
Don’t leave your sunglasses behind. Wear shades to protect your eyes from the sun and glare.
5. Avoid alcohol
Alcohol can dehydrate you, as well as impair your judgment. Avoid alcohol or keep to a reasonable amount.

Ready to embark on your vacation and enjoy the beautiful beaches and incredible fishing at Grand Isle, LA?
Here are 5 easy tips to keep in mind to ensure you have a fabulous time!
1. Try not to plan so much
Having a schedule that’s packed with one activity after another may make the vacation seem less like a vacation. To be as relaxed as possible, keep the itinerary loose. There’s bound to be something you can find if you need an extra activity to fill up some extra time.
2. Do some research
Do enough research BEFORE the vacation so you’re not spending too much time weighing restaurant options and scrambling to find schedules DURING the actual vacation.
3. Make a list or two
To ensure you’ve packed everything you need, jot down a list and check each items off as you pack them.
You can also make other lists, such as a roster of restaurants, events, etc. that you want to experience. Don’t forget a list people you need to by souvenirs for!
4. Have your rental address and information in your phone
Go ahead and put all the necessary information about your rental in your phone, such as the address and phone numbers.
5. Go ahead and take the photo!
When in doubt, go ahead and take that photo! You may not have another chance. Of course, if you’re visiting Grand Isle, Lousiana, we’re certain you’ll want to return at some point!
“If you’re thinking about or have already decided to come to Grand Isle, why not give us a ring at Coastal Realty Group,” invites David Kedzierski, owner and realtor.”

An annual celebration of nature
Grand Isle, Lousiana is the home of a beautiful nature celebration every Spring.
