You won't find crowds at this beautiful beach, but you won't find shade either, so bring an umbrella.

This is my second favourite beach on the island. Beautiful crescent beach that is easy to get to and lots of light late in the day. Stare at the cliffs to your left and eventually you will see the goats. You might think they are not there but keep looking and you'll find them. Last time I went I saw... More

This is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island and in the Caribbean. It is not the biggest, but the drive down to the beach is just spectacular. Like most of the St. Barth beaches, there are no rocks or seaweed, and someone (?) grooms the sand. There are no chairs or umbrellas or restaurants on the beach... More

Parking space are limited. As soon as you park the car, just a short walk and you will be at the beach. A lot of topless ladies getting sun tan and they are gorgeous.

Close to Saline Beach. A little busier but still an amazing spot. Water can be a little rough but less windy than saline.

Beautiful scenery and beach. It was quite busy when we visited and parking fills up quickly, but still lots of space on the beach. There are a few spots under the trees at the entrance but no other shaded areas. No amenities.

The beach is clean, water is refreshing, and relatively few people even when it's "crowded". The drive to it is breathtakingly beautiful.

Good beach spot, decent amount of parking and a wide beach to accommodate a lot of people. Reasonably quick jaunt from St Jean.

Went to this beach multiple times during our stay at St. Barth's and it's by far our favorite. Clear warm water and hardly any waves. We liked going in the morning better than the afternoon because we had the whole beach to ourselves. That being said even when it's crowded it's large enough that you are able to find your... More
