Simply a Paradise near by the downtown, it shouldn't take more than 20 minutes walking from Gustavia, following the promenade between those beautiful houses and the marina, passing also by the Church with the name in french, it's worth it ,it's a must.
We visited Shell beach a few times and each time we had a table at Shellona. It is a calm beach with many shells but there are sandy parts where you can lay a towel down. The restaurant also rents out day beds for about...More
Shell Beach is a quiet, gorgeous beach that is a quick walk from the port. The water was crystal clear and perfectly warm. The entire beach is covered (yes, COVERED) in shells and shell fragments, hence the name! However, don't let this deter you! We...More
We nearly skipped this beach, but were very happy we did not. This is a great beach! We found a little spot on the beach tucked between two big boulders, just past Shellona. The beach is appropriately named. There was no seaweed on this beach...More
I'm sure the heavy amount of seaweed that is here is not a normal occurrence since it seems to be in St. Martin and Saba too. That said this is a great beach that is close to Gustavia if you come on a day trip...More
Decided to spend a few hours in the capitol area, to look at the shops Swedish Tower and Fort Karl. Behind was Shell Beach, it was a small inlet beach, pretty and quaint. If you come to Gustavia bring your suit and can cool off...More
We tried to make a reservation at Shellona for my sister’s 40th birthday next week but unfortunately, they are closed for renovations until June. Major bummer considering it was on her list of “to dos”. Anyway, just thought it would be helpful for others to...More
Shell Beach is aptly named. This is a lovely, small not crowded relaxing charming pretty beach surrounded by cliffs and big boulders. The gorgeous blue water beyond. Amazing location just at the end of town. Do not bother w/ parking with valet-drive around a little...More

Honestly, We would not spend a whole day on this beach. It is clearly worth seeing, but as St. Bart's beaches go, this one is at the bottom of the scale. The view is very nice, but the water is rough and the shells are everywhere. Pop in, spend an hour walking end to end (more like 15 minutes) and head to Salines, Gouverneur, of the shops downtown, :-)

I did not see chairs for rent - There are loungers and tables - but owned by the restaurant. I didn't think there was a charge for the chair/loungers but you had to buy food - or champagne etc....and all that is VERY expensive on St. Barth's.
We sat on a big rock and towels under trees for shade - otherwise you were in full sun. A bit iinconvenient - otherwise your choice is a taxi to St. Jean Beach and their rental chairs are about $20 each....plus whatever else you purchase - drinks are very pricey....
