Relax on this shady, isolated beach - after that 30 minute walk to get there from the main road, you'll need it.

This beach saved our vacation. We went to St Barths largely for Saline and Gouverneur not realizing they were both completely useless due to seaweed. BUT Colombier was amazing. The hike in and out is not easy...but worth it!

We hiked in on the low trail. The hike was moderately challenging carrying backpacks. Just be prepared with stable shoes. Then lose the shoes and backpacks when you reach this near-perfect beach. What else you lose is purely and safely your choice. We encountered a...More

Just returned from St Barts. There was little to no “seaweed” on Colombier and the beach looked very good. Water was calm enough for a long ocean swim and some snorkeling. Water not crystalline but very clear.

This beach is absolutely fantastic. The lower walk there is rocky but not strenuous. It takes roughly 15 minutes and if you are in any physical condition it will not bother you a bit. There is nothing on the beach so pack a lunch, bring...More

We hiked the lower trail past Flamands to get to Colombier Beach. The hike was as fun as hanging out at the beach as we encountered gorgeous views as well as friendly goats, iguanas and turtles. The actual beach is very pretty but the sand...More

Firstly, take the low hike in along the ocean just past the town of Flamands - it is a pleasant 1 hour walk along the ocean with great views and crashing waves - not a tough walk. The beach was pleasant but the snorkeling a...More
