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......

A short walk from the parking lot, and when you reach the crest of a small hill on the path to the beach you are rewarded with one of the most gorgeous views you'll ever see.....clear aqua green then deep blue ocean and white sand encased in a spectacular bay. Great beach for swimming and snorkeling though it can get... More

I've enjoyed all of the beaches in St. Barts and this lives up to it's reputation. Beautiful beaches, water and people to meet and make new friends. I hope to stay a week on this island in the future :)

La Grande Saline - one of St. Barth's most exquisite beaches .This beach, which is peaceful if you move away slightly from the central area, is a good place for walking or early morning relaxation exercises. It is even more magnificent at this time as it is totally empty. As you approach the beach, you can’t help but admire a... More

Very pretty beach but the wind was out of the East and it was too windy. She'll beach is the best. Or Columbier beach but that is a challenging walk to get there.

In addition to being windy, the waters were loaded with seaweed; the locals love this beach and from what I understand, one needs to pay attention to the time of year and the direction of the winds to decide which beaches to go to in St. Barths...evidently, Saline beach was not good when we were visiting.
