About
Relax on this shady, isolated beach - after that 30 minute walk to get there from the main road, you'll need it.

Getting to Colombier on foot involves a scenic and relatively short hike down a hillside, part of which has "stairs". Perhaps because it is not readily accessible, the beautiful sandy beach was relatively uncrowded. The bay is protected on either side, so even on a somewhat windy day the sea was calm enough for swimming.

Great Spot But Be Prepared To Work
Dec. 2019
Our driver dropped us off at the top. The views from up top are spectacular.
Once you've taken pics and videos, it's time to head down. Make sure you're prepared before you go. No facilities here so bring sandwiches, snacks and drinks. Wear sneakers but have flip flops for the beach. The hike down isn't that bad, it's going back up that's the fun part. Along the way you will see plenty of turtles and wildlife.
The beach is beautiful and what you come to expect from St Barts. Well worth it in the end just do it prepared.

I'f you're looking for a beautiful quiet place to get away from it all, Colombier Beach is the one to choose on St. Barth.

Quite the hike, but well worth the effort
Jan. 2020
Beautiful beach, but a heck of a hike to get down to it from the parking area and then you have to get back. Worth the effort, but wear shoes appropriate for rocky mountain trails and take water with you. The beach is fabulous!

Best Beach
Nov. 2019 • Couples
The best beach on the island in our opinion. We took the easier trail which was about a 25min hike. I’m a 55 yo disabled cane dependent vet and made it without a problem. Along the hike we saw turtles, goats, iguana, lizards and spectacular views. The destination is as terrific as the journey. We spent a few hours relaxing in the picturesque warm ocean and were lucky enough to find a spot under a shaded rock. Bring sun screen, walking shoes, and plenty of water as there are no amenities on or near the beach.

One of the most beautiful beaches on the island, also the walk there is really nice. You will see some turtles and goats on the way!

It is beautiful just not worth the hike!
Jul. 2019 • Couples
My husband and I (mid fifties) hiked to Colombier Beach the other day! I read the reviews so we were prepared with good shoes, Keens or Chacos! It is not an easy hike! Lots of steps and slippery spots from fallen leaves and gravel! The hike back up is worse climbing all the stairs! We did not bring anything other than a towel and some water because we did not want to carry any chairs or lunch basket! It would be a good place to snorkel if you brought a back pack but again, it is not easy! Glad we can say we did it though!

Beautiful spot if you can get there
Jun. 2019 • Couples
Truly a magnificent beach. We took the "difficult" path to get to the beach. It was not too bad getting down but definitely wear good shoes. The hike back up was pretty daunting. It was 90 degrees. Having said that it was definitely worth it and we would definitely do it again. There were 6 people on the entire beach while we were there plus a few yachts offshore. Everyone had their own section of the beach. Definitely bring lots of water and an umbrella if possible. Give it a try and it won't disappoint you.

What a Jewel!
Apr. 2019 • Couples
Unless you’re willing to hike (reviews indicate at least 30 min one way) or go by boat, like us you’ll have to settle for a view. Anse du Grand Colombier is on the northwest tip of the island, and the lookout point above provides a stunning panorama. Imagine clear, sapphire-hued water so calm it barely had a ripple, dotted with white sailboats. With just one day on St Barths, we had a short list of must do. Next time, Colombier will be at the top! Lucky you if you made your way to this jewel.

Worth the trek!
Feb. 2019 • Couples
Accessible by two paths--one from the end of the road that ends just past Auberge de la Petit Anse, another steeper but faster path down from the lookout point at Colombier--this beach makes you earn your time on the sand. The reward? You have the place largely to yourself, aside from the revelers from the megayachts parked nearby. Not as beautiful as Gouverneur or Saline, but worth a visit nonetheless.
