Nice, quiet, relaxing beach

Its a nice little stretch of beach where there really isn't much traffic. Great place to soak in some sun and not be bothered with people.

This beach may be good for snorkeling but there is no good sand and the water is not blue. Out in the distance there appears to be coral reefs and prettier water

This is another beautiful beach on the island. It has white sand and is a great place to go for a swim! The water is warm but reafreshing.

A majical place, a cool life, one of St. Barth glorious beachs, and the perfect place for water activities; a lagoon, quit water, shallow, many restaurants located on the beach, a perfect setting for familys and friends.

This half crescent beach is special because you can wade almost the entire way across it. While a nice breeze, the water is usually very tame. Enjoy some lunch at La Gloriette or O'Corail while you're here!

We stayed on Grand Cul de Sac at Ondines Sur le Plague for a week. It is a narrow beach but pretty to look at and has a nice breeze. There is a reef further out and a sand bar just a short walk in the water so it is good for small kids to splash around in and to... More

Excellent beach as it has a lot to do from snorkeling to jet ski rentals. It's also a nature preserve and we were able to follow a sea turtle for a bit

This is a great cove with active wind surfers, kite surfers, paddle boarders and more. We were staying at Le Guanahani so this was our "home" beach. It is narrow but a great cove for water sports and some snorkeling.
