During our stay on St. Barths, we were at this beach every day. By far, this is the most exquisite ocean view, lot of sand that we have ever experienced. The beach is stunning and quiet. The water is clear and warm with minimal current....More

Saline, let´s begin to try to describe this plage. Color the sand: white. Color the sea: form transparent to turquoise! you must go by car. And please take pictures to remind you where had you been which indescribable landscapes. Best shot! For sure.

Lovely secluded white sand beach. Very natural surroundings. The path to the beach is a bit steep and rocky. Not recommended for people with knee problems or elderly.

One of the most beautiful beaches we have even seen. We spent 4 hours on this wonderful gem. We had 2 chairs, an umbrella and a picnic lunch. At any time we were there, there were no more than 20 people on the entire beach....More

May have just been the time of year, but there was so much seaweed. Id say roughly a 3-4 ft span before entering the water. We visited 3rd week of July and it was super windy and full of seaweed. I'm sure this is a...More

Natural surroundings and topless along with nude sun bather, but who's complaining? Overall, great place to get that all over tan. Watch the sun though. My wife never needs sun screen and is now tan as a berry, but after a few days she put...More

It really earns its reputation of one of the top beaches in the world. We loved it here. The water and beach were clean and relaxing. Quiet, not a lot of people. Sun bathers do go au natural sometimes.

Had it not been for the seaweed due to the time of year I would consider this a 5. It's a short hike in that can be done in slip flops and worth the trek. Simply put, a beautiful gem!!

We spent every morning on Saline. The beach is long and flat so you can get some exercise. The water is relatively calm for swimming and snorkeling. This is our favorite beach.

Questions & Answers
Good evening, my wife and I are very interested in our first visit to the Caribbean, while we have been to Bermuda and Asia many times, this would be our first visit to the Islands. We are extremely interested in your help to set up a perfect match. We love nudism but also enjoy dressing formally on occasion. First, if you do not mind, some questions: 1. How close are you to the beach, it does not seem like you are directly on the water? 2. How difficult is it to travel to your location, do you know if there is any direct flights from Boston? 3. What is the shopping like in the area, can we walk there? 4. We would be traveling with arrival on 30/July, departure on the 5th/Aug, depending on things, we might consider making the departure on the 6th? 5. Could you tell us what units might be available for these dates, and what is the rate for each, considering two adults? Please specify in US$. 6. What is the cost to rent a car for a few days, we probably would not want one for the entire stay? 7. What would you require for a deposit and when would balance be due? 8. We know this is clothing optional, and have been AANR members for years, so understand the proper use of cameras, but my wife is into photography and loves pictures, using common sense, and care about taking pictures, is this a problem at your location? 9. What is the best process for doing reservations? 10. What is in the local area to see, with or without clothing? Anything else you can forward us would be very much appreciated and assist us in our planning. Sincerely,
14 March 2017|

I would totally go and stay in St Barth's for a few days. It's magical. So relaxed. We stayed at the Saint Christopher Hotel and loved it. You should rent a vehicle when you are there so you can get around the island... More
