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

Gouverneur is a great beach to go and relax! Park your carin the parking lot, and walk about 100 feet, and you're on the beach! Pack some water (although you can buy water at a restaurant outside of the parking lot) and a light lunch...More

Wife and I just returned from our 6th trip to St Barts. One of the most difficult decisions during our stay is "OK, today, Saline or Gouveneur?" (put that into perspective). We got lucky as it appears the sargassum was taking a break during our...More

private, secluded. There were shade trees but that was not the secluded part. Not as rough as Saline. Loved the drive/road down to the beach.

I visited several beaches in St. Barths and Gouverneur is my all time favorite! It is easy to get to and is very relaxing. FYI, nude sunbathing is to be expected. I visited this beach several times during my stay!

This is another of the great beaches of Saint Barth. You access it by driving down a very steep hill with spectacular view. Park in a small lot, and walk straight onto the beach. This is smaller than Salines but perhaps prettier. It has the...More

If you like waves, Gouverneur beach is for you. The water is very refreshing; however, you have to be careful, of the rocks in the water. There are no services and the only shade you'll find, is under the one tree. The sand is fine...More

Stunning views, beautiful beach doesn't disappoint. Seems to have less parking than saline beach. Don't miss this while you're on the island.

This beach is the middle ground between Colombier and Saline. Columbier has better snorkeling and Saline has better waves for body surfing. None have amenities. Steep sand, water drop off here.

The beach was so nice. The water was crystal clear and sand was soft. The surf was a bit rough the day went came but otherwise definitely worth the trip.
