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.

The beach is a quick walk from the car park (under 5 mins). It's a beautiful beach with carribean blue waters, the sand is gradual enough to hang out in the water, and the waves gentle enough to enjoy without spilling your adult beverage. We were there early November and it wasn't crowded. There are quieter areas to each side... More

This is a fine beach, but you must be prepared for 2 things: 1) The path to the beach is steep and rocky; 2) Their is little or no shade on the beach. Be sure to watch for the tortoises as you walk to and from the beach.

Like more beaches on St Barth, you have to walk a little bit to get to the beach but that only adds to the charm. It is quiet, it's clean, it's perfect sand and blue ocean and no one seems to care if people strip naked. A lovely place to hang out for half a day (don't get burned) and... More

We were recommended this beach by some friends and it lived up to the expectation. It is a bit of a walk to get to the beach, but most beaches are that way. It is small and secluded, but so gorgeous. The water is so clean and crisp with enough waves to make is truly fun. It was a decent... More

Such a nice hidden gem in the island. It was very wavy when we visited but it should be beautiful no matter when you go

Our favorite beach. White sand, wonderful breeze, and very quiet. Hardly anyone else was there. The walk to it was the only negative (~.25km). But the view and water totally made up for it.

I recommend this beach along with Governor's Beach to be the nicest on the island. Was there last week and thoroughly enjoyed it along with 3 other couples. We lost a Go Pro camera on the beach so if you should find it , please let me know. Bring a cooler and some chairs and enjoy the scenery. Don't miss... More

This was a gorgeous beach. My husband and I wanted to explore the island and leave our hotel for the day and rightfully so all the locals suggested saline beach. You must travel here by car, unless you come by boat. Nice big parking lot but then you must walk about 5-10 minutes to get to the beach down a... More
