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

Accessible by two paths--one from the end of the road that ends just past Auberge de la Petit Anse, another steeper but faster path down from the lookout point at Colombier--this beach makes you earn your time on the sand. The reward? You have the...More

Directions using the lower trail (AKA “easy path to beach”): Follow signs to Flamands (not Colombier) taking D210 all the way to the end. You will finally arrive at a cul-de-sac with a view of the sea from the bluffs. You can park either directly...More

My husband and I kept hearing about the “easy path” to this beautiful beach and so we took it. It was much harder than expected. There were areas that were narrow and extremely dangerous! Definitely not for children or those afraid of heights! It took...More

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
