“Swim in the natural pools”
Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

We've been to St. Bart's many times but this was our first time hiking from Grand Fond to the natural pools. It's a must-do. The hike is along the rugged rocky coastline. The views are beautiful. You go passed the "washing machine", beautiful deserted tiny beaches, see lots of goats and then you reach the natural pools. They're the best part of the hike for sure. They're breathtaking. You can swim in them and hear the large waves crashing against the huge rocks that shelter the pools. It's like something in a movie.

Toiny Beach is one of our favorite as well. It's one of the few that has lots of trees for shade.

This area is a great area to explore.

“A Moonscape”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Though the vegetation is starting to be seen, this is moor like a moonscape than St Barth's.
Starting to be heavily built eastern end, used only to have Le Toiney and wasa something one could miss.

“good for surfing”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

I believe this is the only real place to surf but it has a reputation for being dangerous at times. I did not use the beach. It is definitely more remote feeling than the other beaches. Get info before you go!

“Dramatic”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

The Toiny Coast is a mandatory visit every time I visit St Barths and an excuse to do a tour round the island.

Park the car and stand at the edge of the road and take in the drama of the huge waves, bracing winds and the roar of the sea. A complete contrast to the rest of the island

“Northern California!”
Reviewed April 21, 2012

It is rugged and wild with the waves crashing all around you. Park your car, turn off your engine, close your eyes and sit and listen. it brings you back to Monterrey or Big Sur. This offers chance to escape the city, maybe stop for a cocktail at Le Gaiac and ponder the universe.
