This is a beach you want to go in the morning because of the morning tranquility both in the water and on the beach. When the day progresses the people staying at the 2 luxury hotels on one end of the beach start walking down to the other end and the natural beauty becomes full of people other than you... More

A public beach shared with 2 hotels on one of it's end. You can find trees on a side where you can be in the shade. Be careful with the water that can sometimes be rough with the swell.

Is beach has great sand and surf for boogie boarding. Not really ideal for young kids due to the surf but if you like to hear the waves and do some surfing this is the best place on the island

This beach is beautiful and very long. It has white sand and big wawes. Good for windsurfers. Plenty of space for everyone and not many people there!

Perfect beach. Absolutely stunning. My husband and I scheduled an outdoor couples massage at the Cheval Blanc spa which was amazing and then we spent the day relaxing at Flamands. The water is crystal clear and just beautiful to look and swim in. It was an all around perfect day and I would highly recommend the spa at Cheval Blanc... More

Flamand Beach is the largest one of the island , with very fine sand and the water is very calm, you love this beach for bathing in so turquoise water, just lazing around , pleasures of St Barth; idleness for family and with friends.

Flamands is an awesome beach but can be very windy at times. Waves are almost always some of the best on the island. Great beach for walking, and, of course, home to Cheval Blanc.

It may have been that we were there on a windier day than most but we did get sandblasted a bit on this beach. That said, its beautiful, very accessible and I wouldn't hesitate to go back. There's also two hotels with lunch availability if you choose too.

We went to all the others but we loved this one the most. This beach was actually one of the reasons why we picked the Cheval Blanc hotel. This beach is absolutely stunning. Highly Recommend.

It's an ok beach. Not great. There are two hotels at the right end of the beach here. Taiwana and Cheval Blanc. Don't suggest this side too much. Once go and check it. If you like get a cocktail at one of the hotels.
