“Not enough sand, too many people”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

My headline says it all. Yet, there are nice restaurants for lunch and cute shops nearby. The beach is boring. I'd try somewhere else.

“what amazing color”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

we had our first day in St Barts at St Jean Beach.
very relaxing at the end of the beach away from Eden Rock.
But wonder down to Nikki Beach and have lunch.
Take a walk up to the top of Eden Rock and the view is spectacular. You can see the planes taking off.

“Old St Bart's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The beach that made the Island famous. Big and white with not much surf and a great view. Eden rock anchors one end and the runway the other. If one goes to one beach for a taste of St Bart's this is a must.

Very nice. Soooo beautiful. Blue water and soft white sand. Easily accessible close to airport, restaurants and shops. Perfect for friends, couples or families. Wish I was still there..

“Airport beach!!”

Loved being on the beach at St. Jean. Centrally located and you get to watch the planes landing. Lots of fun!
