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.

Gouverneur's is an amazing beach that is a short drive from the airport. I could not believe that this was my second visit to the island and i had no idea of how beautiful some of its landscape and beaches really were. The drive there is nice and gives a whole new perspective to the island. The beech was not... More

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.
