Discovering our 15 magnificent beaches
St Barts Beaches For a small island, St. Barths has a wide variety of beaches, all of which are open to the public and all of which are lined with beautiful white sand. Here you will find the typical Caribbean resort beaches with their hotels, restaurants and watersports centers, but also some hidden strands inhabited mostly by locals, celebrities -- or nobody at all. We highly suggest renting a car in St Barts in order to see as many of St Bart’s beaches as possible.

Some beaches require a ride down an unpaved road, a boat ride, or a short hike, but all are worth the trip. A trip to Saint Barthélemy is filled with the excitement of travel and a sense of adventure. Yet all traveling comes with certain risks that can be avoided by following a few simple suggestions. The image of the “Caribbean” has always evoked the dream of living under the tropical sun all year long, but you must protect yourself! In order to make the most of your vacation on our island, be sure to dress in lightweight clothing. You should also always wear sunscreen (cream or oil) with a high level of protection (40 + SPF) to protect you as best as possible from the aggressive rays of the sun. A hat or a cap is also a good means of protection, because even when you are not on the beach, your face remains exposed to the hot sun. Please remember that access to the beach is prohibited for all animals, for reasons of public health.
