Although there are no private beaches in St Barths--French beaches are always public! This quaint beach is only reachable by boat or 20-30 min hike (it took us only 15 min but we are in great shape and went at a quick pace) which makes the beach feel private. Lots of boats come use this beach and it's a great... More

We took the lower, easier trail here and it was fun and lovely. One should be in reasonably good shape and wear sneakers or walking shoes to do it. We saw tropicbirds swirling along the cliffs leading to the beach - an amazing stroke of good luck, for these pelagic birds are rarely seen close to shore. The beach was... More

This is still probably one of my favorite beaches in St. Barths. The climb from the top is pretty amazing however you need to remember that what goes down must come up...you need to be in great shape for this one. The hike from flamand is much easier and still beautiful. If you are going for a day at the... More

The most remote beach in St Barts. Unless you have a boat, the only way to get there is by a footpath and please make sure you wear the proper shoes - no flip flops! This is a gorgeous beach perfect for a romantic interlude or a picnic lunch. It is definitely a trek to get there but so worth... More

The reviews are correct indicating the amount of time to hike to this beach. It is absolutely imperative to wear shoes that can handle rough terrain, on this 30 minute trek. It is pretty much down most of the way, with a few level spots, but becomes a quiet place with calm waters. There are no concessions, so food and... More

This beach is a great place to enjoy yourself without a crowd. There are multiple boats that dock here, so you're not exactly "alone", however the gem of this attraction is the hike. You cannot arrive by car, and this is not a hike to be taken lightly - although the path is well-carved, there are still moments of teetering... More

Over the holiday period, I went to Colombier from the upper path. It is a difficult walk going down, and even harder coming back up. I would not recommend it unless you are in top shape. I was surprised as to how busy the beach had gotten. Too many boats and people. Some large boats bringing umbrellas and large picnic... More

This was probably our 3rd trip back to Columbier and somehow...the actual trip seemed shorter this time. It was a beautiful day when we went...following a night of rain. The trail leading back was still wet in places, so we had to really watch our footing on the hike. The hike itself is not overly hard, as long as you... More

This beach is accessible by boat or by a thirty minute hike. The hike is travels along the ocean and provides great views. Once at Colombier, you are in an area that is protected and makes for good swimming.

In the water you can see a lot of wild life; turtles, fish, etc. On the beach- relax and enjoy the suns an ocean views.
