Hiked into the beach (5 min) from an ample parking lot which has a lovely restaurant at the end, Le Grand Sel. Huge beach and maybe 30 people total. There was nudity but it was so quiet and spread out, not really a big deal unless you had kids. It was a little rough, but still nice for a swim.... More

I love St. Barths, am a regular visitor, but the sand at most of the beaches is so spongy that you can't stand at any given spot for more than a few seconds! Grande Saline isn't an exception. I truly believe every trip has to check a few 'objective' boxes and if you're hoping for a beach where you can... More

Not only were we on a less traveled beach, but we were there during the off season (Oct15). Did not have to venture very far for privacy. There were probably nude/topless sun bathers there but they were so far away no one would know. very beautiful. Yes, there is a short walk but who wants to look at a parking... More

This beach is worth going a bit off the beaten track. Once there it is in a lovely horse shoe bay. Sometimes though, there can be a bit of seaweed on the beach. And there can be some arger waves and a bit of undertow.

To get to the beach, there is a little hike. Take your time and watch the scenery. You may even see a turtle on your way. Today was beautiful, as usual, but there was a lot of seaweed washed up on the shore and still some in the water. It did not smell so good so we didn't stay long.... More

This beach is quiet & secluded. Bring a lunch & bottle of wine & just relax. We have been to Grand Saline many times over the years & it still lives up to the memories. Not that easy to get to ,but these days it has a parking lot. Just a short walk through the dunes & enjoy..........

This is a a great beach on Saint Barth. It is quite long, beautiful, and has no development whatsoever. It is a haven of calm. Like all French beaches this is a topless beach. It is also one of the Saint Barth unofficial fully nude beaches, with full naturists concentrating at the far left and far right of the beach,... More

Fantastic beach. Do visit if on the island. You have to walk up a path and through the dunes a bit but oh so worth it when you arrive at the top and see the view of that expansive, beautiful beach. Has little waves, great fun. Leave the beach before 5:30-6pm: otherwise mosquitoes and gnats may devour you on the... More

An exposed beach that is well worth the effort to get there if you go by foot - watch out for the un though as it can be very strong and there is little to no shade.
