We stayed at the top of Colombia in a villa and make the trek down 2x. It's an amazing beach. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen. You could hike down in flip-flops (I saw people doing it) but sneakers are a lot more comfortable. Bring what you need for the day because once you're down there thats it : )

The best beach for snorkelling with a calm open bay. Sea turtles and cuttlefish can be seen. Bring an umbrella though, not much shelter from the sun

It is a 25 minute walk along a mostly flat to slight grade trail to get there but is well worth it. We went to every beach and this one is the longest for walks, distance of sand to the water, and good snorkeling. Calmest waves on island too. We did not stay here late enough but it is facing...

This isn't the most accessible beach, as it is a 30minute hike down tiny and rather undeveloped pathways...however I can say it is well worth it! It's probably my favorite beach in St.Barth. It is located in a beautiful cove. On one side of the cove you can see a huge mid-century style estate, which we later found out was... More

Starfish and curious friendly angle fish everywhere. Crystal clear water. A hike but my favorite beach on the island

Accessible only by boat, a few big ones, some smaller ones, maybe 5 in all, or like a mountain goat down a trail from one of the highest points on the island. Great trek, partly through jungle partly in the open always on rocks. But the reward after the walk is worth it. Best beach on the island. Decent snorkeling... More

It is an excellent spot in which to swim, snorkel and/or picnic. The land above is private but there are places under the rocks, where you can get a little shade from the hot, Caribbean sun. You will see many beautiful boats that come and moor in the bay and, if you have the use of a boat, it is... More

Whether you are a hiker or not, pack a small picnic and do this hike. The views are stunning and the experience is worthwhile. And it truly rounds out the St Barths experience.

Park at the end of the road past Flamands beach, and then hike out to Colombier, about a 15 to 20 minute hike depending on your pace and how often you stop to take photos. The trail is well defined and only a couple of places are tricky, but go slow and easy to navigate. Amazing ocean and coast views... More

While it is a bit of a walk (say around a mile at most...more like a half mile from the end of the road)...this is one of the best beaches on the island. Water was dead calm in June with a wide beautiful beach and no seaweed. I would not recommend wearing flip flops to walk here as the trail... More
