Do not be deterred by some of the reviews indicating a difficult walk. It is not the case. It’s an easy 5-10 minute walk from the parking lot to the beach. Once there, it is probably the most beautiful beach on the island. Perfect sand and water. Not a single building in site. We visited in October and the waves were medium sized, good for body surfing.

As indicated throughout the reviews, there are no facilities here. Nor is there really any shade. So come prepared

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.

This is a white sand beach, beautiful view, miles long, the biggest credit is less peoples.
You need to walk from the carpark about 10 minute, walk on the small sand dune up and down. Worth it. Remember to bring your parasol.

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.

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.

Beautiful beach but our least favorite on the island. The waves are strong, no real shade from trees to hide from and nothing to see snorkelling.

We preferred St Jean and Columbier by far.

Parking is plentiful compared to other beaches.

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.

Excellent beach for sunning and seeing crystal clear water. For American's not used to topless and nude sunbathing it takes a moment to adjust. Once there you will fit in no matter what you're wearing (or lack thereof). It is a short hike to this beach. You typically will find more locals at this beach than anywhere else on the island. The beach never seems crowded even on holidays!

We were there in April 2008. Our first nude experience. We did not want to leave. It was fantastic being naked. It was just so free and I have always considered myself a prude. A bit windy though..Walk with loads of sunblock, water and umbrellas if you can.

After a short 5 minute hike you will find a virgin beach w/no development whatsoever. The water clarity is unmatched. It is usually totally empty or very few people there. The sand is a fine white powder and once you strip down to your bare skin and become one w/the sand,surf and sun bliss awaits you. People are very discreet w/nude sunbathing and everyone minds their business.This beach is what the carribean must have been like thousands of years ago.
