Like many beaches in St. Barth's, this beautiful beach is somewhat secluded and rarely, if ever crowded. There are no beachside cafes, bars or restaurants, but that loss of convenience is more than compensated for by the unspoiled natural beauty.

I've been here several times now, and it was never busy. It has crystal clear waters, amazing sand, no garbage, and a free attitude. Many people are nude, and it's a completely judgement free zone. I wish I was there right now!

Everyone visiting St Barths should go to Salines. Easy access, great parking lot and only a small walk to get to the beach. I recommend you go on a cloudy day, as there are no shades there. Water is pristine and walk along the shore is a delightful experience.

This is another great beach for naturism -- discreet that is. After the hike from the parking lot, you get to the beach. As it is a French beach, you will immediately encounter topless bathers. If you wander halfway down the beach towards the left or towards the right, and will start to encounter fully nude bathers. Many couples, a... More

If you are an extreme kite boarder--this beach is for you! If you need any shade, bathrooms, restaurants--this beach is not for you. The waters here are rough--so not recommended for children or weak swimmers. And the wind is very strong--hence it's great for kite boarders. We only stayed for a little dip and to watch some kite boarding but... More

Great beach loved it here so much. Was very quiet so everyone had lots of room. Waves were awesome, so much fun playing in the sea. A few nude bathers but nothing major. Some very cute guys there and seemed to be very gay friendly. No places for drinks so take your own and have a great day!

It's beautiful and the water is perfectly clear to a great depth. Wave height varies by the day. Families and those who wish not to see nudists congregate on the right side to the center of the beach. Nudists stay on the left side and generally respect the preferences of others by donning attire of some sort when they walk... More

Saline Beach is one of the few beaches that we have ever been to where you do not see one man made structure. No amenities so bring whatever you need for your time at the beach. The beach itself is about one half mile long and good for walking. It can be quite windy and almost always has large surf.... More

Quite ample parking. Short walk to the beach. We were out visiting the beaches and felt this was one of the more favorable ones on the island, to visit.

Huge waves when we visited this gorgeous beach. It was not suitable for children or for people with poor swimming skills. But it was gorgeous. Requires an easy walk to it, which can be done in sandals. There is no shade to be found there, so plan accordingly.
