This is Saint Barth's elegant beach. Not as quiet nor as pretty as others, but surrounded by beachside restaurants where beautiful people can go for that 100 euro lunch, before wine. Very sexy as well with toplessness being the norm as on most French beaches. Beware however that loungers are hard to come by. Most are reserved for hotel customers,... More

A beautiful beach that you'll pay dearly to visit. Make no mistake about it, St. Births is expensive.

Great water and great sand. Fun to watch the small planes land and take off. Nice shops around and of course Eden Rock resort and Nikki Beach!

A great beach for all beach-goers, the young and not so young. It was a bit windy when we visited but we all still had a pleasant swim. There is a place to eat as well as a place to rent paddle boards, kayaks, and windsurf boards. It was enjoyable to watch planes take off from the airport as we... More

This is a beach with tourists and some locals. It is beautiful but busy. The parking can be tough to find, There is almost no sea weed or rocks but the depth falls off pretty quickly. There are better beaches but you have to walk a distance from parking.

This is a nice beach but one that has hotels, restaurants and water sports facilities on it. The water is calm and it is easy to get to. There is a large public parking area across from the public access point too.

St. Jean Beach is by far my favorite beach on St. Barts, possibly in the carribean. It has warm, calm water and clean white sand. The beach itself isn't huge, but it is private and has plenty to offer. The restaurant at Eden Roc has great lunch, and if you decide to splurge for the day, you can reserve chairs... More
