You won't find crowds at this beautiful beach, but you won't find shade either, so bring an umbrella.

I personally love this beach on my trip! It was very private beach where it was open and you were able to relax in a wide open space with soft sand! I enjoyed swimming and basking in the warm and comfortable sand. Would go again!

Another beautiful, clean beach in St. Bart's. This beach had a little bit more available parking close to the beach

I was hiking down to this beach when a local kindly offered me a lift. Quite the hill down and back. The car park is close, but the beach is exposed so bring shade/water if you plan to stay a while.

Along with the Salines beach it's amazing how beautiful it can be. Not trashed by humans, it's so calm and relaxing to spend the day laying on the sand.

I can only agree with the high scores by others. We toured the island just for one day (by rental car), on a day trip from St. Martin (by power ferry Voyager from Marigot Harbour). We saw and briefly walked on several beaches on Saint Barthelemy, most of them very nice, but this Anse du Gouverneur one was my favourite... More

This and Grand Saline Beach are the best choices for beautiful, easily accessed, commercial-free beaches. They are wonderful, sandyl beaches but lack amenities. They tend to be private, and topless or nude sun bathing can be expected.

I just spent two weeks in St. Barth's and Gouverneur was our go to beach. Easy to get to, beautiful, good swimming and some shaded areas, if it's not too crowded. All the beaches in St. Barth's are nice and it's funny to hear the locals assess the wind conditions when deciding what beach to go to, as if it... More

My first visit to Gouverneur was thirty years ago and it still amazes me at its beauty. Just steps from where you park your car it is for everyone. Bring your lunch and a bottle of wine and enjoy the swimming and the people watching!
