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.

A place I use to go back then, since I had lived one year in the island. In my memory it was a great beach, were I had a lot of fun. St Barth has a lot of great beaches, Grande Saline is one of them!!

It just doesn't get any better than this. This is a real life styles of the rich and famous location. Occasionally windy, so walking to the far left hand side can help. Simply stunning.

It's not my favourite beach to sit on, but there's a fabulous walk around the headland. Enjoy the walk and then have lunch at La Gloriette

The short walk is no big deal. The wind blows here and the waves tend to be larger than other beaches. Good thing is that wind helps keep you cool. There are no amenities here but there are two good restaurants nearby. Second best beach on island, Colombier is better but 25 minute walk with shoes, not sandals.

Made the 7 minute walk up to Saline Beach from the lot. There are some good restaurants nearby. On this July day, it was extremely gusty (even though not elsewhere on the island). So gusty that the sand would whip up and painfully blast us in the legs, face and whatever else wasn't covered. Made the mistake of thinking the... More

This is a great beach for those who, like us, enjoy the natural beauty of a beach that is unspoiled by snack bars, rental chairs and umbrellas and so forth. The beach is beautiful, the water was calm and we loved relaxing, reading, dozing and spending some time there.

This is a beautiful beach. The water is clear. And if you like some mild waves, this is the place for you
