I discovered this beach by accident while we were just driving around the Island. If I had know of this place sooner, I would have spent at least a day or two there. It's private, and so beautiful. It's not at all touristy....no cabana's, umbrellas, or restaurants, or shops....just sand, water, fantastic views, and plenty of beach for everyone willing... More

Living in Oz we have thousands of great beaches so this was nothing spectacular for myself. Certainly worth a visit if you don't come from a beach culture.

The beach was great. The views were amazing. A lot of seaweed in the water and on beach. My husband was eaten alive by the Mosquitos, bring lots of spray. I don't say this as a negative, because all the beaches have mosquitos. I would say this about every beach because we went to all of them.

We visited in November....a few weeks after the hurricane and there was still a ton of seaweed at this beach. We usually stay a full day here, but after our walk out there...we turned and went back to find another beach on the other side. Be aware...regarding the walk to the beach....it is a little walk and you have to... More

Wear some good walking shoes (sand and rock) for the walk from the parking lot to the beach and you will be rewarded with a wide sandy beach. I visited once through the day and two early mornings. For the mornings, I had the beach to myself for walking the entire length of the beach twice. As other reviewers have... More

Very nice beach, had a lot of seaweed... but quiet and relaxing. Had to walk to the end of the beach to get in the water becasue the seaweed was thick.

This was the sexiest beach in Saint Barth. Large, white sand, clear water. Not crowded. Frequented by locals and tourists alike. Beautiful people throughout. As is customary on French beaches, most women tan and swim without tops. As you get further from the entrance, either to the left or the right, the number of couples tanning or swimming "au naturel"... More

Beautiful beach and great place to relax and take a tan. The water is shallow and clear. Good for snorkeling.
