Relax on this shady, isolated beach - after that 30 minute walk to get there from the main road, you'll need it.

We took the trail from Flamands, the so-called “easy” trail. I’m afraid of heights, so there were a few anxious moments on the trail, but the destination made it all worth it. This is a must-see St. Barth experience. Unforgettable. Mountain goats and tortoises on...More

Breathtaking beach. Nice sand and surf was calmer than some other beaches on the island. Hike in is about 20 minutes and moderately difficult at times especially carrying a couple beach chairs but worth the effort.

Well worth the hike. We did it as a group and two of our members are in their 70's, so it's a manageable walk. Wear comfy shoes, flip flops not so great. We brought a bottle of wine and it was bar none the nicest...More

This beach saved our vacation. We went to St Barths largely for Saline and Gouverneur not realizing they were both completely useless due to seaweed. BUT Colombier was amazing. The hike in and out is not easy...but worth it!

We hiked in on the low trail. The hike was moderately challenging carrying backpacks. Just be prepared with stable shoes. Then lose the shoes and backpacks when you reach this near-perfect beach. What else you lose is purely and safely your choice. We encountered a...More

Just realizing that people actually contemplating not to take the hike to get to Colombier! Well, if you hesitate, don't, it's one of the most pristine places on earth and the hike (from the Flamand side) is incredibly beautiful and really gives you a true...More

Just returned from St Barts. There was little to no “seaweed” on Colombier and the beach looked very good. Water was calm enough for a long ocean swim and some snorkeling. Water not crystalline but very clear.
