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

Most remote beach must hike to or sail/boat in - absolutely stunning and few other visitors give you lots of privacy - gorgeous underwater "sights", bring your snorkel mask. Shady spots up the hill. Hike is 30 min in, 20 out if you are fit....More

This hike was pretty easy to do and had a pretty cool section that they carved steps into the stone. Best way is to go to the entrance closest to Flamands beach. Probably took 15-20 mins and wasn't too hard, kids 7+ could manage it....More

Phenomenally beautiful beach. The hike down was long and a little scary, because of the loose stones on the path. Met nice people while floating around in the crystal clear, calm water. Most had arrived by hired boat. Good call! The hike back up was...More

Well worth the hike in. Great snorkeling especially with kids. My 4 and 6 year olds both made the hike fine, but they needed adult hands as much of the hike had a narrow, steep path. We loved seeing the wildlife on the hike including...More

Although a trek to get to, doing so is a worthy effort. Beautiful white sand. Large enough to provide space and not be crowded.

Took the easy way to Colombier - by boat. Fabulous snorkeling by the rocks - clear water with brightly colored fish. Gorgeous beach - walk to the gate and stairway to the deserted Rockefeller mansion.

I've heard there are easier ways to get to Colombier, but I wanted to do the hike. So, my husband and I parked at the top of the mountain, then hiked to the beach. It was hot, and it was difficult (I have terrible knees...More

No. We hiked in last June. Hardly anyone on the beach. A few sailboats in the bay. Some snorkeling on the ends of the beach. Beautiful.
