A great place for a romantic, fun time! Water and sand are outstanding. I have been there over 6 times, and it never fails to deliver a wonderful experience. Eden Rock is the crowning glory. Sands restaurant has an amazing view!

My husband and I (age 55+) spent a fabulous day in St Jean Bay, St Bart. We were there on a Monday, and it was not crowded at all. We visited on a cruise stop. We rented a Mini Cooper prior to arriving from Alamo Car Rental. We had the car delivered to the port where we tendered. The Alamo... More

The beach feels like a slice of a cove with a handful of exquisite cafes and boutiques. The vibe is upscale and friendly.

Nice beach in a cove. Perfect for families with children of all ages. Lots of activities to do in the water, and you should really try out the SkiBob. It pulls you along in the water, and even under the water. Not good for young kids though.

Beautiful beach in the heart of St. Barts. Calm, clear water that seems to go on for days. A must see in St. Barts.

Beach sits right in front of Nikki restuarant were we lounging with the kids and another family. The ladies sun bathe on sun beds while the kids played in the water. If you're a large group and can afford it take the out door seating area at nikki.

When looking for a great beach in St Barths, the place to go is St Jean Beach. When arriving by boat at the harbor, it is up over the hill in front of you. It is possible to walk by following the road up to the left over the hill, but it is a narrow road with traffic and pretty... More
