You won't find crowds at this beautiful beach, but you won't find shade either, so bring an umbrella.

We had a great afternoon enjoying the calm, easy surf, and clear waters at Gouverneur beach in St Bart's. This was a nice change of pace from Nikki Beach, which is a lot busier. Here, you can stake out an area and not be bothered by anything. We threw around a frisbee, walked the beach, had a few drinks, and... More

This was the prettiest beach on St Barts. You need transportation and there are no facilities and no restaurant. The sand is very white and the water crystal clear and a lovely shade of blue. Very peaceful and romantic.

The wife and I went here twice, about a mile down the hill when you turn at Santa Fe, halfway down is a great spot to pull over and take a picture of the beach from high up. Parking lot fits about 20 cars and each day we didn't have a problem getting a spot. Get lunch for takeout at... More

Gouverneur is an amazing beach in every way. Tip: Watch out for some hidden sea urchins in the rocks on the far left side (as you approach) of the beach.

Beautiful beach, secluded. Edges are calm while the middle is rough. To get to the beach you have to walk a little bit, but it's worth it. Not too many people there, but then again we went on Sunday, took a day trip from St Maarten.

Gouverneur is surrounded by St. Bart's rocky coast as with most of the beaches there but the road descending to the beach is surrounded by beautiful villas and the approach is just fantastic. There's a simple, clean parking lot with very few steps necessary to the beach.The beach itself has wonderful, soft sand and made for a great afternoon.
