This stunning, secluded beach can only be reached by sailboat or a 30 minute hike. Beautiful yachts are anchored there. The water is pristine, the beach lovely. We had the pleasure of arriving there by catamaran with Miguel Danet and St. Barth Sailor (stbarthsailor.com). Can't recommend him or the beach highly enough.

Fun place to snorkel as you see many big starfish and some shy stingrays. The beach is very calm and you can catch a lovely sunset from there. Advice: take a catamaran there, spend the morning swimming and snorkeling since the tide is calm and peaceful at this time.

We loved this beach - worth the walk. Walked there at sunrise and saw a large array of fish, including a 4' nurse shark!

The only way to get here is by boat, or I guess there is a resort of some sort on the other side and people hike over (along a high, rocky cliff about 20 minutes) to come. This keeps it nice and quiet and secluded feeling:) We came by boat and enjoyed the calm turquoise water and the beautiful beach.... More

Another beautiful beach in St. Bart's but this one makes you work for it after a 20 minute hike or so through the vegetation. Highly recommend that you have foot wear with good grips. I don't know what was more difficult the walk down or back up but either way the exercise is good and the view and beach are... More

We hiked to this beach from our lodging...about 20 minutes...my husband and I are 55 y/o and fit, and had no difficulty. Flip flops not recommended for the hike. Several yachts were there with passengers transported to and fro. The only downside was listening to a competition to have the loudest radio on their boats, but it didn't last long.... More

Anse de Colombier bay and beach is on of our favorite anchorages in the West Indies. Difficult to access by land which makes for that special feeling. The bay contains more than a dozen well maintained moorings which are free! You are close to Gustavia without the crowds and expense. Wonderful swimming and snorkleing

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.
