St. Barts / St. Barthélemy Beaches

Three useful resources for planning your vacation: Henry Barnett's pages, and The Insiders' Guide to St. Barthélemy, and St. Barths Online.

St. Barths Online provides this summary of St. Barthélemy beaches:
[The beaches on St. Barths] are all blessed with gleaming white sand. Few are crowded, even in peak season. All are public and free. Nudism is ostensibly prohibited; topless is not unusual. For beaches with hotels, restaurants, and water sports, Grand Cul de Sac fits the bill, as does St. Jean, which is actually two beaches divided by the Eden Rock promontory. You can also see St.Jean Beach from our panoramic movie page. There is a smattering of hotels and restaurants at Flamands, a huge stretch of white sand fringed with lantier palms. The village of Corossol verges on a lovely beach that serves the practical purpose of a fishing port. The beaches at Marigot and Lorient are secluded and quiet, favored on Sundays by island families. Petit Cul de Sac is secluded, and usually very quiet; Toiny is wild and beautiful, not for the faint hearted. Gouverneur is serene; Saline is well worth the hike over the sand dune. Shell Beach can be reached on foot from Gustavia; Public, pronounced "poobleek", near the commercial pier, is fine for a quick dip. Hardest to get to is Colombier, reachable by boat from Gustavia or by a half-hour hike down a scenic path.

Beaches are arranged alphabetically.
