The easiest way to get to this beach is by boat. When I was there, several were anchored just offshore. I was at a nearby villa and decided to take the long hike. There are two paths, one close to sea level and the other is from the mountain top. I was in a villa on the mountain so I... More

We anchored off Colombier Beach with the Sagitta (Island Windjammers). There were a couple other small boats here, but it felt like a private beach. Snorkeling was nonexistent in the main part of the beach, but if you swim over to the side (toward the direction of the random structure on the rocks), it gets decent. Lots of different fish,...

I was just back in Colombier beach. It is truly awesome. At this time of the year, it is very quiet. There were very few people only on the beach, and only a few boats anchored. We liked it so much that we ended up going four times during our week-long stay in Saint Barth. We spent half our time... More

I cannot say enough to recommend Colombier. After staying near Salines Beach, I thought I had found the perfect beach; Salines was wonderful and a bit more "castaway-esque," but if you are looking for a calm paradise, Colombier is your spot. We stayed at Le P'tit Morne which is a wonderful series of bungalows at the end of the road... More

St. Barths.. pretty small island, with many beach. Honestly, there are better beaches in Bahamas and Jamaica. St. Barths is simply just a trendy island

This is just my opinion but Colombier is the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. You have to hike here and the hike is just as enjoyable as the beach. Opt for the lower hike option which will take 30- 40 minutes, feed the turtles :) and enjoy the amazing view! Then the beach is simply breath taking, dotted... More

Quite pristine beach. It was quite empty as it is low season. Great snorkeling on the reef and saw plenty of starfish right on the middle of the bay. Bring water for the hike and some food if you plan to stay a while. We did the hike from Flamands and it's not that bad if you are of normal... More

Of all the beaches on St. Barthelemy, this beach is our favorite due to the beautiful scenery and the calm waters. As many people have said, it is a hike to get to. If you are a fit person, you won't mind. If you are not fit but do not have difficulty walking and climbing stairs, you will probably find... More

I was there with my husband. The hike is long and tedious but the beach is great. Very secluded feeling. Bring water as there is no shade. Saw several people, mostly couples, sunbathing completely nude. This did not seem to bother the other 20 or so people sharing the beach with them. Great experience overall. I would love to go...
