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...

Loved the secluded beach at Colombier. about a 15 min hike through slightly dangerous rocky terrain, but 100% worth the hike! Most beautiful crystal clear green blue water, pristine white sand and absolutely no distractions around. Perfect for honeymooners, non rowdy people and quiet couples. Not much shade provided because there are not that many trees, but the water was... More

Totally worth the 20 minute hike. Take a picnic basket and enjoy a beautiful sunset. Great snorkeling spot

It is very secluded, you need to hike down 15 minutes (and 20 min upwards) but very few people, great for snorkeling. Make sure you take the equipment and a sun umbrella as there is no shade. Sneakers are more appropriate than flip flops to walk up and down. Enjoy!
