However you choose to get there, you will be rewarded for your efforts. This is a gorgeous secluded beach! We arrived via a chartered catamaran. A short swim ashore in the warm clear water and a walk on the quiet beach was exactly what we imagined it would be. This was probably the most relaxing day I have had maybe... More

The walk is not short (about 20-30 minutes, depending on your footwear and fitness) but very nice and chances are you will see (land)turtles, boobies, pelicans and other animals (goat, lizards etc.) It's not as pretty as Grand Saline (although others might disagree) but it's quiet, remote and lovely. Snorkeling on the left and right of the beach is pretty... More

Colombier Beach is located just beneath where we've stayed (Le Petit Morne) during our two visits to St. Barth. It's just a beautiful beach, secluded and accessible by two walking trails - of course, if you have a boat you can anchor there. We always take the longer walking path along the ocean to get there; it's invigorating and not... More

Colombier Beach is probably one of the best beaches I've experienced. I love the fact that it is in a natural reserve and that apart from the Rockefeller's (abandoned) house no sign of construction can be seen from the beach. If you visit slightly off season, chances are the 'anse' will not be filled with yachts and sailboats thus revealing... More

This is the off-season. There are only a few people around. You can have the beach all to yourself, even on the weekend. The best part of it is the snorkeling on the left side when facing the ocean. The water is crystal clear, the colorful fish plentiful. There is no access to the beach, so you have to earn... More

If you want to hike, there are two ways to get here one is by having the water on your side and the other one is down hill through the woods. Its a good 20 minutes hike not the easiest but not so difficult either you can totally enjoy the sound of the waves as you go down. Once you... More

We came in by boat to this pretty spot. worth staying a couple of days. you can dive here, chill on the beach/boat or do a couple of hikes (one of the best is over to the beach on the windward side for some surf)

It's a hike of approx 45 minutes,but worthwhile! Stunning bay, very quiet(...) and no facilities; paradise blue water and white sand....Make sure you bring sufficient water.

Very nice little beach, not very easily reachable as you either have to hike there (20min, not very difficult) from Colombier or from Flamands beach, or via a boat. Anyway, very calm and crystal clear water, wildlife (marine and land) frequently spotted. Very few people hanging there, making you a bit privileged! Be sure to bring water, the way hiking... More
