Colombier Beach is absolutley stunning. Crystal clear flat water that looks more like a swimming pool than the ocean. The beach is only accessible via a hiking trail-- which is not easy. Make sure to wear sneakers!

Great beach. Well protected from the wind. This is when boat moor for the day. We were told it is a 25-45 minute hike to the beach from the parking area. 27 minutes down. 25 minutes up. BUT this is not an easy hike. Where good shoes for hiking. Not sandals. The elevation drop was a hell of a lot... More

This is by far the most beautiful beach in St. Barths. But it is remote and a 20 minute hike down the steep hill so I recommend wearing good shoes. Also, there are no amenities or retail so bring what you need for the time you are there...water, shade, etc. We came informed and prepared and had a wonderful morning!... More

It's an out-of-the-way beach requiring a bit of a hike to get to from either direction, but worth the view at least once. The sand isn't the finest, containing many bits of shell so it's not the most comfortable. Worth a visit.

I walked down the road in Flamands to where the trail head begins, thinking I'd go out for a pleasant 20 minute hike to the beach. It was pleasant, but it's no stroll in the park. The trail is a bit rugged, with a lot of steps carved into the rocks you will traverse along the way, but it's not... More

We snorkeled, cooked on our grill, rowed ashore, hiked up to David and Peggy's abandoned place and found a tortoise.... the kids had a terrific time and we thoroughly enjoyed avoiding the crowds in Gustavia

This stunning, secluded beach can only be reached by sailboat or a 30 minute hike. Beautiful yachts are anchored there. The water is pristine, the beach lovely. We had the pleasure of arriving there by catamaran with Miguel Danet and St. Barth Sailor (stbarthsailor.com). Can't recommend him or the beach highly enough.

Fun place to snorkel as you see many big starfish and some shy stingrays. The beach is very calm and you can catch a lovely sunset from there. Advice: take a catamaran there, spend the morning swimming and snorkeling since the tide is calm and peaceful at this time.

We loved this beach - worth the walk. Walked there at sunrise and saw a large array of fish, including a 4' nurse shark!
