Once again, another beautiful beach in St. Bart's. This is a beautiful beach in that you could go further out in the ocean and it was also all sand. No rocks on the ocean floor, perfect. Lots of parking near the beach but a short hike to get there but again, well worth it.

Follow the trail up to the beach, and spread out! Nice sand beach, but the surf looked like it might be rough the day we were there.

Best beach out there. Wild, no contamination, white sand, beautiful rock in front of you to add some landscape. Clear water, maybe a bit windy. If you go on low-season, I recommend to go there at night with your love. Superb.

Quiet and peaceful. It's a bit of a walk in from the parking lot down a path (10-15 min), so keep that in mind when packing items. There were no chairs etc so bring a blanket or towel to relax on. Gorgeous view and well worth the effort to get there! We'll be back.

Not much parking so the beach never gets crowded. Beautiful setting with nude sunbathing if you are a fan. The nudists go to the ends of the beach so the middle of the beach is a mixed bag of couples, families, etc. Great setting but the surf can get rough some afternoons when the wind kicks up. Nice selection of... More

The salines beach is a beauty that can't be missed. After the parking and restaurants, the empty, no spoiled beach is amazing. We went several times as it's so attractive. We even visited from the sea with a jet sky.

Because we had a pool at our villa, we only went to three beaches during our stay on St Barth's, but without comparison, this beach was superb. Sugar sand, modest surf activity (the day we were there), little seaweed in the water, and short walk from the parking area. The beach is between 1/4 and 1/2 mile in length, so... More

Like the rest of this island, Grande Saline will not disappoint!! This beach is a bit of a walk to get there, but so worth it. The waves do come in kind of strong, but it is simply splendid. There are no amenities so plan accordingly. It is also clothing optional, so plan accordingly for that as well!! Highly recommend!!!

You may just saunter onto this beach on a less windy day. Regardless of how you find it, don't forget to head to L'Espirit for lunch! It's exceptional!

This is a beautiful, white sand beach that is one of the best on St. Bart's. Some topless and even nude sun bathing might be noted. Parking is excellent, but there are no amenities.
