“My favorite beach ever”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Unmissable experience! Phantastic setting is apparent already when driving down the valley to the beach. It is surrounded by high rocky hills with woods, that form a great contrast to the white sand and blue water. The surf is high, a lot of sun swimming and playing in the waves, no boats that would disturb you, not crowded at the time of the trip. Be careful to place clothes and belongins high, sometimes high waves wash up to the very top of the beach.

“Great beach when the winds are high”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

This was a great beach to find when the other side of the island on that particular day had high winds. The beach was filled with people from Italy, France, people playing soccer great day.

“Secluded, Natural beach”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Great beach to enjoy au natural with your spouse. We went to Governour beach 6 times in our stay on St. Barths and enjoyed it immensely every time. the near side of the beach seemed to be more for families and the clothed, while the far end of the beach was for full nude sun bathing. We loved it and had so much space to ourselves, so did not feel over crowded at all. There were times when there was nobody else on the beach. paradise. An exciting drive to get there, the water was great on calm days, but due to weather became choppy by the end of our time there. Bring an umbrella and lunch..plan to stay for the entire day.

“Best Beach in St. Barth”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

We checked out most of the big beaches while at St Barth and this was our favorite. Beautiful views, long expanse of perfect sand, few people, nice shallow portion to sit and chat while sunning. Don't miss it.

“My absolute favorite beach on St. Barth's”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

This beach has a good bit of shade for St. Barth's, near the entrance by the parking area, if you get there early enough. Plan to share it. Deep water begins quickly which, in the right season, gives great wave action. LOVE LOVE LOVE
