“one of many good beaches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Fine sand; not overrun in August and a fascinating spot to watch the airplanes land and depart from the small airport.

“A Day at The Beach in St. Jean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

This unique beach located just across the street from the airport is a must see. Planes take off and land literally over the beach. Be the 1st to welcome the new arrivals as they fly over your head as you swim in the crystal cleat waters !

“St. Jean beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

St. Jean beach is gorgeous. It is beautiful, calm and truly just a perfect beach. It is pretty crazy watching the planes come and go, while barely touching the sand and water. yikes! From our time there, we immediately saw that bc of the calm waters, it is probably the most family friendly beach. We spent most of our time at other beaches, however this one is definitely a must see.

Beach is beautiful. Really enjoyed The beach bar at Tom Hotel. Had a great time meeting new people and enjoying the warm Caribbean sun. Water is translucent, and the perfect temperature in June,

“Paradice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Smooth Waves and few people make this beach one of the best. Good place to see the occasional plane take off as well.
