This beach is in a nice fishing village so you can see all the boats in the harbor while swimming. The water doesn't drop off very quickly so that's another benefit in addition to the calm waters. And even though it's a fishing village don't worry about it smelling like fish because it doesn't 😊

This is a beautiful small beach next to Gustavia. Not many people here and great views. No beach chairs an just peace and quiet! Very nice!

It's a authentic village with traditional fishing boats, the "dories"; the beach has the same name as the village, it's a small beach and the only one of the island with brown sand; in the village you discover also the typical creole houses of the island with character; it's very relaxed in this village and an air of liberty and...

Just a fabulous remote beach. The town is small and gritty. It reminds you a typical Caribbean Island.

Probably the smallest beach that is on our trip. We only saw one person reading in a chair. You share the beach with small boats. A little difficult to find, but we checked it off of our list of beaches to see on the island.

Corossol is a quiet beach, with mainly homes around it. It is a nice sandy bottom beach with good views of the boats in the ocean. A good, different place.

We drove here specifically to see the shell museum. It was closed when we arrived, but there was a sign on the door -- be back in 5 minutes. After 45 minutes we left. Meanwhile, we took a short walk on their very small beach and found some interesting shells. There was no one around. Very quiet town; and beach... More

More of a locals area. Lots of fishing boats. Parking lot right at the beach. Not much of a beach after the recent hurricane. Much different feel than other areas of the island. Worth a drive to see.

Small beach tucked out of the way. Lots of "Mr Krabs" crabs running all over the place. Fun to watch. Water is calm and depth drops away quickly making great to swim in

A charming little sleepy town. You are away from the crowds and find the real island life. There is even an old French cafe where you can have your pastis!
