Known as Rockefeller beach as well, you can see the deserted estate on the left as you approach from the water. Snorkeling around the rocks on the side opposite the estate is really nice. Saw a ton of fish, beautiful elk horn coral, and a Spotted Moray Eel. You can also hike into the beach (about a 20 min walk).... More

We wanted a bit of an adventure and we got one. It is a small hike but well worth the effort. About a 20 min walk from being dropped off at the trail head it is beautiful. Snorkeling was fun and it is very secluded. Make sure you wear shoes vs. sandals and watch out for cactus!!

Came here on an excursion where we snorkeled and enjoyed the beach. Beautiful, clear water and great snorkeling. Saw many star fish and sand dollars and even a flounder and a nurse shark! Unfortunately, our water camera battery died before we could snag a pic. Very enjoyable day with hardly any other people.

This is one of the nicest beaches in Saint Barth. It is hard to access as you must hike for 30 minutes or come by boat. As a result it remains secluded. There is no development on the site, except for the abandoned Rockefeller house that you can see in the distance. This is one of Saint Barth nude beaches,... More

Quite a hike! Beautiful beach but very popular for boaters to anchor close to the beach. Only amenities are the ones you carry in.

Initially, I honestly wasn't thrilled when I learned we had to hike down to get to the beach. In the end it was worth it! A beautiful secluded beach. Perfect for me and my honey! The water was rather rough that day, but great day nonetheless.

One of the most beautiful beach on the island of St Barth. You have to hike a little, and you gonna sweat from all over your body but it's worth it ! Such a quiet place. Don't miss it, you will regret it for sure

We had high hopes for this hike and beach but were disappointed. The hike offers some beautiful views, but it's short and the only real view is of a little cove right past the parking lot. The beach has no shade, and it's fairly small. Sure, it's beautiful, but more so than other beaches? No. The snorkeling is okay. Again,... More

Easier to get to by boat than by land, but the peaceful setting and good snorkeling is worth the trip! We visit every couple of years, usually using the hiking paths and grabbing a meal at La Langouste on our way home. There are some seriously dangerous drops along the paths, so not advised for young kids. Pack water! Once... More

This beach was fairly private, not too many people willing to make the hike down and back up. A few boats anchored while we were there but the environment was quiet and the water was very calm. This was our second favorite beach (Shoal Bay, Anguilla #1) and the only drawback was the path to get there-but hey, that's why... More
