Beautiful water, easy access and not very crowded. It’s a great spot if you are trying to sight see geriatric nude sun bathers. JK! It was lots of fun!

This is the only beach where one feels free to swim nude. It is still wild and beautiful, unlike other beaches where development has flourished.

The best way to get there is too Rent a car and Explore a Bit off The Island. For sure the best way to go there is later off the afternoon to avoid some crowd

We rented a quad bike to tour the Island and swimming was a requirement. Anse de Grande Saline is a short walk from the car park and a beautifully unspoilt beach away from tourists. I loved body-surfing in the rollers. Didn't see any naturists.

No crowds, no buildings. Just a naturally beautiful beach. Just know in advance that there are no services on this beach but just a small walk away is the delightful Grain de Sel restaurant serving the most delicious creole style food.

During our stay on St. Barths, we were at this beach every day. By far, this is the most exquisite ocean view, lot of sand that we have ever experienced. The beach is stunning and quiet. The water is clear and warm with minimal current....More

Good evening, my wife and I are very interested in our first visit to the Caribbean, while we have been to Bermuda and Asia many times, this would be our first visit to the Islands. We are extremely interested in your help to set up a perfect match. We love nudism but also enjoy dressing formally on occasion. First, if you do not mind, some questions: 1. How close are you to the beach, it does not seem like you are directly on the water? 2. How difficult is it to travel to your location, do you know if there is any direct flights from Boston? 3. What is the shopping like in the area, can we walk there? 4. We would be traveling with arrival on 30/July, departure on the 5th/Aug, depending on things, we might consider making the departure on the 6th? 5. Could you tell us what units might be available for these dates, and what is the rate for each, considering two adults? Please specify in US$. 6. What is the cost to rent a car for a few days, we probably would not want one for the entire stay? 7. What would you require for a deposit and when would balance be due? 8. We know this is clothing optional, and have been AANR members for years, so understand the proper use of cameras, but my wife is into photography and loves pictures, using common sense, and care about taking pictures, is this a problem at your location? 9. What is the best process for doing reservations? 10. What is in the local area to see, with or without clothing? Anything else you can forward us would be very much appreciated and assist us in our planning. Sincerely,
15 March 2017|

I would totally go and stay in St Barth's for a few days. It's magical. So relaxed. We stayed at the Saint Christopher Hotel and loved it. You should rent a vehicle when you are there so you can get around the island... More
