Great beach, restaurants to eat at-rentals for surf boards or kayaks, and a great place to people watch. The planes are constantly flying over the beach so if you are looking for action this is the place to be. Relaxing and entertaining with a beautiful view of Eden Roc in the cove.

I really like Guverneur Beach the best--then Shell Beach, then St. Jean Beach. I also enjoyed site seeing--There's a Christ Statue on the way from Gustavia to St. Jean. Also I enjoyed souvenir shopping. Le Creperie is a great choice for lunch.

Had a couple hours in St Barths, so took a cab here to watch the planes. This beach was so relaxes, so quiet, and so beautiful. Well worth the cab ride over. Perfect sand, perfect water, and not very busy. I will be back.

St. Jean Beach is incredible. On the Nikki Beach side, the water is calm and great for swimming and floating. On the airport side, there are awesome views of planes taking off and landing. There is plenty of shopping and food right next to the beach.

It is a very nice beach right by the airport. Plenty of restaurants and shopping options around. You can find chairs, umbrellas and water sports equipment rental with the Carib Waterplay guys who are next to La Plage restaurant. Seems like a good beach for begginer water sports. During my time on the island there was very smooth seas and... More

Great beach. Nice waves. Great to watch planes to land and take off. La Plage and Eden Rock are there if you want lunch. A little more crowded than other beaches

All beaches are delightful, but St. Jean Beach is great -- from La Plage to Nikki Beach. It has activities, restaurants, great swimming and delightful scenery. Walkable, picturesque and family friendly. Rent the local chairs for 10 Euro each or bring your own. Can walk to the supermarket to replenish snacks, wine and water.
