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.

This beach is never crowded. That is a huge plus for me. That said, it is absolutely gorgeous and has some of the clearest water and best scenery in the west indies. You need a cab to get here from port and its about 10-15 minutes drive. Its a short walk, probably about 10 minutes, to the beach but that... More

the waves and the size of this beach made this beach climb among the top 10 in our world beach list! no restaurants so you need to take your wáter & food but beautiful to walk and swim, lots of energy, do not leave St. Barths without seeing Grande Saline

It's an immaculate beach, the water is calm and blue and beautiful. It's a known topless location with some nudists sprinkled here and there so not a children friendly place. If you an American tourist, please don't walk on the beach staring at half naked people like you are in a zoo, it's very very rude.

The walk from the parking lot was a little long and somewhat difficult - but when the beach revealed itself - WOW!!

The drive to This beach was smooth and the parking was easy, be aware of the smells before you get to the beach, it's the lagoon side and it's not pretty. But once you get here, the beautiful scenery, the white soft sands and warm sun, it's all worth it. Its a small walk with a little hilly rocks but... More

Your first indication as to how magnificent this beach will be comes from the entrance pathway, lined by palm trees and culminating in a rocky ascent over a small dune. Saline is one of the largest beaches on St. Barths with powder-soft white sand and turquoise waters. It is one of the few beaches to have a consistent surf adequate... More
