We love St Barths and this time we spent three lovely weeks there. St Jean is my favorite beach not only in St Barth but also in the world. The water is clean, the sand is clean, it’s always calm (even on windy days) making it an ideal destination for those with kids and toddlers. It’s easy to find parking... More

We spent a day here enjoying the vibe of St Barths. There are a few beach bars on this beach. A water sports facility rents paddle boards, kayaks, etc. The airport runway ends on this beach so watching he planes come and go is enjoyable. We like La Plage as a beach bar and restaurant to visit. They also rent... More

Gorgeous shallow water looking out at fabulous yachts. What's not to love? The water is so crystal clear and you never see fish or anything moving around. Super soft sands!

Say what you want but I love this beautiful beach. Soooo much to do - watch the planes glide over the sea for the take offs/landings, people watch, eat at 2 3 great restaurants right on the beach and a stone's throw from great shopping. Its the pulse of St Barts! A must do!

One of the best beaches i have ever been to. You could see Anguilla in the background. Its perfect sand, perfect water, and perfect views of the amazing homes on the hillsides.

Enjoyed the day at the beach. Parking is a bit tough, but once you find it, the rest is fun. There are plenty of places on the beach to set up "home base", and explore. I wanted to take photos of the planes and had plenty of opportunities to do so. The beach was a gradual incline into the water.... More

This is an awesome beach to relax and to watch planes take off and land. The ocean is generally pretty calm.

Beautiful beach with swanky hotels, restaurants and villas. Truly one of the most beautiful spots on the planet. Beautiful clear water with calm waves. Watch the small planes take off and fly over the bay. Dine at any of the wonderful beach restaurants. Walk the beautiful crescent beach. Sunset cocktail at Eden Rock is a must. St. Jean beach can...
