This beach is a spectacular white sand beach on a bay that's protected both sides by rocks. There's a car park here but that's it, no concessions or shade. It's gorgeous. It's a great place to see locals hanging out. A lot is made of topless sunbathing on some of the St Bart's reviews and yes you'll see some. Anyone... More

This is a beautiful beach and you can watch the planes come in but it is expensive . All of St. Barth's is expensive.

We visited this beach on our last day of vacation. Wish we went earlier, as it was one of the most glorious beach we had ever visited.

Because the parking lot can only handle a handful of cars you never have a crowded beach. You must go either very early in the morning to find a space or do as we have always done, arrive when everyone is leaving for lunch. We arrive after 1PM and drive all the way to the entrance and last month the... More

this beach has very few people so it is very relaxing and always easy find a spot to sit on this beach.

This is my second favourite beach on the island. Beautiful crescent beach that is easy to get to and lots of light late in the day. Stare at the cliffs to your left and eventually you will see the goats. You might think they are not there but keep looking and you'll find them. Last time I went I saw... More
