La Grande Saline - one of St. Barth's most exquisite beaches .This beach, which is peaceful if you move away slightly from the central area, is a good place for walking or early morning relaxation exercises. It is even more magnificent at this time as it is totally empty. As you approach the beach, you can’t help but admire a... More

Very pretty beach but the wind was out of the East and it was too windy. She'll beach is the best. Or Columbier beach but that is a challenging walk to get there.

In addition to being windy, the waters were loaded with seaweed; the locals love this beach and from what I understand, one needs to pay attention to the time of year and the direction of the winds to decide which beaches to go to in St. Barths...evidently, Saline beach was not good when we were visiting.

This is really a fairly long and pretty beach. For the uninitiated, it's a little tricky to get to but once you've done it, there's no problem. Try to get there before 10 for some easy parking, and get ready for a brief hike. Once you get there, you'll love the water and the sand; just "another" picturesque Caribbean beach.... More

Requires a short walk from parking lot but breathtaking view when you crest the hill. No facilities on the beach which is the best part. Beautiful, uncrowded beach. The way I picture a beach should be. Great waves, clear water and privacy.

This was my first time to this beach and it was recommended that i visit from friends. There is ample parking but it is a 5-10 minute hike to get to the beach front from the car park - it is a sandy and in some parts rocky. Once at the beach it was breath taking, such a lovely view... More

I had a wonderful day at grand saline beach on St. Barthélémy! Do not worry about the nudity in the beach, I didn't see any nudity there but you will not notice if there is any. The waves are strong and the beach sand soft, so there is always something to do! Bodysurfing and boogie boarding are incredible things to... More

Once again, another beautiful beach in St. Bart's. This is a beautiful beach in that you could go further out in the ocean and it was also all sand. No rocks on the ocean floor, perfect. Lots of parking near the beach but a short hike to get there but again, well worth it.

Follow the trail up to the beach, and spread out! Nice sand beach, but the surf looked like it might be rough the day we were there.
