Perfect castaway-style beach.

Easily the best beach on St. Barts. Out of the way, quiet, peaceful, with the feeling of a remote private island. I've only been here in the summer months, but at those times I've... read more

Easily the best beach on St. Barts. Out of the way, quiet, peaceful, with the feeling of a remote private island. I've only been here in the summer months, but at those times I've never seen more than a dozen or so people on this very long beach. Yes, there are nudists, but everybody is spread out so far you...

We spent a few hours on this beautiful beach. The water is blue, warm but refreshing. There were high wawes at the time and the sand was sticking to you but the view was great and it was not full of beach chairs, but instead unspoilt. Bring all yourstuffand a picknique.

My 10-year old daughter and I really enjoyed bogey-boarding at Saline, and have enjoyed doing so for many years now. You do have to be careful of the surf, as conditions can get dangerously rough. As a general rule, if you're elsewhere on the island and it's considerably windy, don't bother taking an outing to Saline for bogey-boarding that day.... More

Unspoiled, big, natural. Crystal clear water no strong currents (at least today) so definitely good to swim. Clothing optional. Top quality caribbean beach. Definitely suggested

We have been here a few different stays on the island. This beach remains my favorite on the island. Flanked with cliffs on both sides, a distant remote island on the background, and goats in the land behind... It's a remote, beautiful paradise. Clothing optional is typically way down towards the right side of the beach. Tons of sand. Beautiful... More

I am not sure what all the hype is. Wife & I visited last week and were quite disappointed. Yes, it is a big & unpoiled beach. But there are literally scores of those in the Caribbean Islands. Water is clean but not exceptionally so. They're is not a single natural shade and winds are too strong to put up... More

I know many who call Grande Saline their favorite beach on St. Barth. I prefer others that are more easily accessible. Not only do you have the hike to get to the beach, if it's crowded you may have a good walk to find some privacy.

Beautiful solo beach. Anchor to the east side since the beach is expose to swell and trade winds. Anchor on a sandy bottom and watch out for braking waves going to the beach. There are not amenities or services on the shore , just a virgin white sand beach for lovers. Cheers '

Took a day trip to St. Bart's from St. Martin for the opportunity to spend an afternoon on Saline Beach. It is by design left unspoiled by any restaurants, beach bars, vendors or any other structures. It is a perfect crescent of white sand. Now be warned there is no shade here so bring a hat or better yet a... More

And if you like there are clothing optional sites at either end. Hard not to enjoy swimming naked in that utterly beautiful setting!
