Beautiful Bay that can be accessed either by a healthy hike over the hill or by boat. Plenty of sea life. Saw several turtles and snorkeled with a Spotted Eagle Ray.

Go early or go late afternoon after the boats have left. Usually just a few people on the beach with others coming by boat for the day. Challenging to walk to with no car access, but worth the 15-20 minute hike.

Of a difficult access walking for 20 minutes on a narrow path, the beach is hidden away, so that makes it even more beautiful. Take your time to enjoy every part of it. Go in the morning as after it it might get busy.

We approached from the sea on a rented motor craft, others in our group having taken the somewhat difficult overland hiking route earlier. The beach itself is quite beautiful and secluded, though there were many pleasure boats moored just off shore. The waters are clear and at a perfect temperature.

Access to the beach requires a 20 minute hike. We entered via the scenic trail from the right at the end of Flamand road. The approach from the left was said to be more strenuous. Sneakers are recommended for the hike, as the path is rocky in places. The beach, itself, is very nice and popular with yacht people. Rather... More

Also known as Rockefeller beach, Colombier Beach is the gem of St. Barths’ beaches. Unless you own a yacht, a key fact to keep in mind about Colombier Beach is that there are two over-land ways to reach it. The first is by parking at Colombier’s Point of View monument and hiking down the lava rock cliffs. If this is... More

Bring water, lunch and most important wear sneakers and do not carry too much.It is all downhill and the path is rocky and uneven. The walk... More

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
