“Easy does it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

There are many nice beaches to go to but for me St. Jean is my easy going relaxed beach , I stay near this beach so even if I venture out to others ,St Jean is easy to go to later in the day . Fun to watch people ,all different sorts of people , good food in area and close to food stores to get packed lunch if desired.

“Perfect location....beautiful sand.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Great for people watching or just hanging out. Very calm waters and near plenty of places to eat and drink. Cool to watch the planes fly in to the tiny airport near the Tom Hotel.

“St. Jean Beach is Ideal for Families and Friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

St. Jean Beach has easy access from the road and there is a lot of available street or lot parking. Good eating nearby. the beach is very protected and the water is calmer than some of the other beaches, making it ideal for swimming. Our favorite beach on the island.
