This difficult to reach sandy beach is definitely one of the best in St Barth. Best way to reach it is by boat. It is a natural reserve surrounded by green hills and a villa owned by Rockefeller. Water is clear, the sea quiet and you encounter turtles and sea stars so bring your snorkeling attire or just wait for... More

It's not easy to get to, so always quiet. Some good shade. Most of all looks of marine life especially if you're prepared to swim out a bit. Very sheltered so sea normally perfectly flat.

You can eat with your toes in the water! the food is delicious and the drinks are generously poured. Very hospitable. It seems popular with locals-- always a good sign.

Given the hike to get there, we thought we might be virtually the only ones there but the it was full of sailboats that had anchored in the bay which spoiled the view and actually made it quite busy. A very nice beach but we preferred Gouverneur and Saline and they were less work to get to.

This beach is absolutely the best on the island. It is a little isolated so you have to walk in. Park by Anse de Flamands rather than at the top of the hill. The hike up to your car at the end of the day is a killer!

We walked the beach, then hiked to see the other side of the island. Its not a hard hike, but best to be in shoes. Saw some BIG lizards and all the flora and fauna the island has to other.

The beautiful beach that is Colombier is a truly wonderful place to enjoy on St Barth. It could be said it is the best on the island. It took me and my partner around 20 minutes to walk from where we parked the car near the Anse. It was an interesting walk and we saw a couple of tortoises and... More

A great beach at the end of a 25 minutes track across le Colombiers coast. On the way you can find wild tortoises, rare lizards and a very un crowded beach. A worth effort

While it is a hike to get there, this is the most spectacular beach on the island. We were there in November--the hike took us 40 minutes on the lower trail, taking it slow to ensure my wife did not twist her ankles (weak ankles!). (You must wear closed toe shoes—don’t even consider flip flops or sandals!!!) The path was... More

It's only accessible by foot or boat. If I'm going to hike when there are so many other beautiful beaches you can easily access it needs to be spectacular and EMPTY. It's not. Loud boat people coming ashore. No shade. Go to Saline instead.
