The most remote beach in St Barts. Unless you have a boat, the only way to get there is by a footpath and please make sure you wear the proper shoes - no flip flops! This is a gorgeous beach perfect for a romantic interlude...More

The reviews are correct indicating the amount of time to hike to this beach. It is absolutely imperative to wear shoes that can handle rough terrain, on this 30 minute trek. It is pretty much down most of the way, with a few level spots,...More

This beach was an adventure to get to(~15 minute hike). Beautiful, of course. Much calmer than Saline beach. Though, since boats can anchor here, the views can be blocked a bit and not all those who anchor respect where they should be! The hike alone...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.
