Trip Planner USA  /  Louisiana  /  Grand Isle
Grand Isle is a town in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, located on a barrier island of the same name in the Gulf of Mexico. The island is at the mouth of Barataria Bay where it meets the gulf. As of the 2010 census, the town's resident population was 1,296, down from 1,541 at the 2000 census; during summers, the population including tourists and seasonal residents sometimes increases to over 20,000. Grand Isle is statistically part of the New Orleans−Metairie−Kenner Metropolitan Statistical Area, though it is not connected to New Orleans' continuous urbanized area.Grand Isle's main street is the seaside start of Louisiana Highway 1, which stretches away to the northwest corner of the state, ending near Shreveport. LA 1's automobile causeway at the west end of the island is the only land access to or from Grand Isle.Direct access to Grand Isle's seat of parish government is 95mi away in suburban Jefferson Parish, which leaves the town somewhat politically isolated.
Grand Isle is in Louisiana (LA). To arrange what you want to do in Grand Isle, use our United States road trip planning tool .
