Really nice beach that you can walk to from ferry terminal. Bring a blanket to sit on because it cost $58.00 to rent two chairs and one umbrella. Also pack a lunch unless you want to pay $35.00 for a hamburger. LOL

The only beach that is an an easy walk from the port, it is a good quick glimpse of St Bart's. The beach is as its name implies, shelly, but with combine it with the fashionistas who come to be seen, with the fashion show at the adjacent botique and the decent food at Do Brasil with the tropical setting and one has a most enjoyable experience.

Beautiful beach, strong under tow. Nice view of the yachts. If you want a lounge chair is $20 euros not including umbrella. Very hot, and no other shade. Bar on the beach. The shells on the sand are amazing and literally you could dig down several inches and it would still be shells, never seen so many in my life. Definetly need to see this!

Do Brazil on the beach-fun for lunch or dinner but the main draw is viewing sunsets . Fun also is fashion shows at lunch time of adorable beachwear from shop right next to restaurant. and yes you walk on shells so that's unique!!certain days there is live music. If you want a table on the beach (rather than above) call ahead
