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.

Saline is one of the best beaches on the island. During our last few trips, we haven't gotten to enjoy it as it has been full of seaweed, quite windy and rough surf. My best advice is to ask a local - they know the recipe for a good day on Saline. Don't drag all of your possessions (i.e. chairs,... More

Typical of Caribbean beaches. Fun way to spend a day. Hope for a sunny day when the sea is relatively calm. The sun is quite strong here so protect yourself accordingly.

This is one of the few beaches that is not rocky and a great place to bathe. Quiet and a beautiful enclave. A little bit of a hike from the parking lot but worth it......
