Best beach in St Barth! Long secluded beach with good waves for bodysurfing. Naturists on either side of the beach. Clothed tourists in the center. Good snorkling along the cliff and the small reef in front of the beach. Go in the morning when there are fewer people and the sun is not so strong. Good restaurants in walking distance... More

This is our first trip to St. Barth, chosen specifically because it affords several great naturist beaches. The Grande Saline Beach is one of these, and I highly recommend it. There is some parking space for about 50 cars or so, but no matter what time of day, the lot gets filled up quite quickly. You may have to wait... More

After parking the car, there is a path to walk to the beach which has a lot of rocks and has to go up and down, As soon as you see the beach, it is all worth it.

Great beach away from the hotels. Water can be a bit rough but I didnt mind it. Pack cooler and snacks as there is nothing there. Great spot.

After driving around on the Ilse of St Barths we found this lovely beach. There is a parking lot, with a nice and shady walk to the beach. Enjoy that, since it is the last shade you will see for a while. The beach is quite large and secluded, not too much wind.

After parking close to the beach, there is a short path past beautiful dunes down to the water. Arriving at the water, if one turns left and walks all the way to the end of the beach, one will find the nudist 'section.' No facilities on the beach, and few bathers. Simply fabulous!

It was pretty cloudy when we went so the beach was not very crowded and waves were a bit strong. Nice clean beach. It is a few minutes walk from the parking, no amenities and there is no shaded area.

Saline Beach was a beautiful large sandy beach which had plenty of space for the few vistitors. The water was a spectacular blue/green colour and a perfect temperature to swim and cool down after soaking in the sun. There is a little bit of a sandy, uphill walk from the car park but it's well worth it.

Grand Saline is a beautiful beach (long and wide), with a very gradual drop off when entering the water. It's a 10 minute hike from the parking area that can be easily be accomplished by most. Those who choose to sunbathe au naturel do so at the outer reaches from the mid-section entrance.
