Gronant is known for its Dunes, an area of sand dunes and foreshore that
stretch to the Point of Ayr, Talacre. There is outstanding wildlife and it
is a site of Special Scientific Interest. Both Gronant and Talacre Dunes are
popular with holidaymakers and local residents.

Upper Gronant has a village shop/post office and the Gronant Inn. There
used to be an enclosed order of nuns at Talacre Abbey at the end of Abbey
Drive. The building is now a private residence.
