On one side is Eden Rock's beach - quiet, luxe and filled with beautiful umbrellas and beach chairs. We were told it is 90EUR to rent chairs and an umbrella for the day and 60EUR for a half day. On the other side of the beach is Nikki Beach which is much more lively ith patrons of the restaurant/day club... More

Wonderful beach! It was quite busy the day we visited, but it was worth spending some time there. Close location to restaurants and shops. Renting a scooter is a great and easy way to make it around the island!

Pristine sandy beach, no seaweed. Slopes away quickly to allow you to swim. Enjoyable for local families as well as tourists

Always nice to check in at St. Jean to see what's going on. It is after-all, a very very beautiful beach.

This is a nice white sand beach with restaurants and hotels on it. I like to sit at La Plage where you can eat, drink, rent chairs, and watch the planes take off and land. It is a fun place and if you are in ST Barths you should spend some time on this beach.

We didn't spend much time here as we prefer a more secluded, commercial-free beach, such as Grand Saline. However, the Eden Rock Hotel is lovely, and bars and restaurants are available.

St. Jean beach is right next to the airport so as you lounge on the beach, you can watch the small prop planes taking off and landing. It's a nice beach and convenient to shopping since it is across from a shopping area and near a great cafe and juice bar, Kiki-é Mo. Like all beaches in St. Bart's, it's... More

The beach is narrow like most on St. Barth's, but the sand is unbelievably soft. The water was calm and invitingly warm even in January. Food was pricey but delicious at the beachside Nikki Beach restaurant. I highly recommend the rotisserie chicken and forking over the $100 US to rent a bed. Yes, a bed on the beach! The cab... More

As with most of the beaches on St. Barth's this one is a beauty. Relaxing and beautiful scenery. Nearby restaurants for lunch/dinner or drinks.
