This is another of the great beaches of Saint Barth. You access it by driving down a very steep hill with spectacular view. Park in a small lot, and walk straight onto the beach. This is smaller than Salines but perhaps prettier. It has the same mix of regular, topless and fully nude folks that can be disconcerting to first... More

If you like waves, Gouverneur beach is for you. The water is very refreshing; however, you have to be careful, of the rocks in the water. There are no services and the only shade you'll find, is under the one tree. The sand is fine and if a gust comes along, it's painful when it makes contact with your skin.... More

Stunning views, beautiful beach doesn't disappoint. Seems to have less parking than saline beach. Don't miss this while you're on the island.

Everything was closed when I was there. We took a tour with cabbie, he was not knowledgable of the Island, so we didn't have the greatest trip. Enjoyed the ferry Ride, this was several years ago in September. Would like to go again.

This beach is the middle ground between Colombier and Saline. Columbier has better snorkeling and Saline has better waves for body surfing. None have amenities. Steep sand, water drop off here.

The beach was so nice. The water was crystal clear and sand was soft. The surf was a bit rough the day went came but otherwise definitely worth the trip.

Gouverneur and La Saline are the two best beaches and close to each other. This beach has easy parking and beautiful white sand. The water is spectacular and there are no terrible rocks. Saw a couple of celebrities to boot. We can't wait to return.

Nice beach and easy to get to. Great snorkeling on the day we visited. Very quite this day too. Some awesome views on the drive down to the beach as well. Plenty of parking and easy access.

This was a gorgeous beach. There's ample parking in the lot just before the beach. Signs indicate that there's no ash trays on the beach and request you use the soda cans if you are smoking to put your cigarette butts in and keep the beach clean. As many have stated before, there are no services here -- no food... More

The day I been there, the water was not so transparent... Too much plant in the water. Probably it is better during sone other times of the year.
