nice long walkable beach. Great waves. Popular with the locals for surfing. Great bakery nearby. Not as crowded as some of the other beaches. Nice change of pace.

While this is not the best beach on the island, it is our favorite place for lodging and here's why: A very nice, picturesque, long sandy beach, beautiful ocean views, affordable villas and small hotels (compared to other beaches), very uncrowded, good snorkeling, and walking distance to grocery stores and restaurants. Why is it not more popular? The only reason... More

One of the less traveled beaches on the island, it is worth the visit. We returned to this beach time and time again not only for the view but also for the fine small restaurants in close proximity.

Very quiet little beach in Lorient and was close to my house in Marigot Bay. Only locals around. Lots of young surfers around for the weekend in a competition.

This is the most underrated beach on this island. Why? Because Les Salines and Gouverneur are more spectacular, and L'Anse des Flamands is backed by upscale hotels. But, unfortunately, scenic as these beaches are, they have deficiencies. The surf is so rough that unless you are a USCG rescue swimmer or a professional lifeguard, good luck trying to swim at...

The town is old and funky and not too overbuilt. The Rothschild acreage at the western end is still intact which protects the town. Traffic can be tough.

Here is one for you. I plunked my wife on the beach. Set up my rented chair! (You rent beach chair in St Jean for $30 a week!) I walked over to the mini mart. I bought a beautiful apple and a beer. Walked back ..wife topless. Heaven!

Jojo burger is conveniently placed, is a surfers and local neighborhood quick eatery. I stopped after shopping at the supermarket right next door. I had a hamburger which was accompanied by slices of a small tomato, pickles and french fries. The fires were thinner and crisp. the ketchup is tart and good. i did not try the mayo. It was... More
