After visiting St. Jean, Flamands, Lorient, and Govenuer I decided Saline was my favorite beach on St. Bart’s (Gov was second fav). No facilities and a nice calm ambiance. Pack a bag of stuff and take it with you. No beach bars or restaurants walkable so it’s best to pack a little picnic. It’s a nice long strand of beach to walk and was never too crowded. The walk uphill then downhill from the parking lot is a nice little exercise and helps give the beach a somewhat remote feel. If in St. Bart’s it’s a great beach to spend a quiet peaceful afternoon and just watch the waves and hills.

This is a lovely beach which stretches for quite a ways- it is easy to walk on. however, the walk from the parking area to the beach can be tricky for those with mobility issues. You need to walk up hill for part of the walk in each direction. One hill has sand that covers rocks which means it is much more comfortable to have shoes on and the other hell is loose sand. My husband has knee issues and found it difficult to come back down on the part that had the rocks under the sand. However, the water is easier to swim in than at some of the other beaches. There is not as strong of an undertow here as another beaches. Families, couples and friends all populate the beach. If you walk all the way down to the end of the beach, going to the left after you arrive at the beach, you will find an area where most people are without bathing suits at all. It is a quiet Section of beac. The water is a beautiful turquoise here and sell but our yachts often anchor in the water. There is an AED located at the entrance to the beach. The restaurant, Grain del sel, is located right before the parking lot. Very casual and convenient for before or after the beach.

The beach is wide with soft white sand, the water turquoise, and in spite of that there's plenty of space. It is near perfect, but the total lack of any facilities such as toilets, showers, and shady vegetation makes me deduct points. There is an informal nude section at the end, to the left as you enter. No signs, no fences, just social acceptance.

Like most of the great spots in St Barts, Anse de Grande Saline takes a little bit of work to get to but not as much as Colombier. Plenty of room on the beach to spread out away from others. The sand is super soft and the water is perfect. No facilities so bring food, water and whatever you desire. We had a driver named Yankee that took us around. Spent 2hrs here, 2 hrs at Colombier, lunch, then an hour at Shellona and some shopping, then hopped back on the ferry to Anguilla. St Barts is a special place.

We enjoyed the afternoon here at Saline Beach. It is long enough to go for a walk, the sand is soft with no rocks, seaweed, or hard shells. It is also flat, and the water has gentle waves that are the right amount to enjoy without feeling overpowered in the bay. Park your car, and then you will have a short hike - first it is flat, then up a rocky incline and back down. Take a cooler, chairs, etc. as there is nothing there but people. Not crowded when we went - some people were topless, others nude, others completely normal swimsuits - anything goes. It was very relaxing and peaceful.
