Best place in St Barth

Good place to be! If you love airplanes- that place is the only solution. I recommend to visit La Plage - best quality/price ration on the Island.

The water is so warm you have trouble remembering you are in the ocean. The water is clear and gin colored. It is an extraordinary beach that is worth a visit. The hotels along the beach are expensive but it's hard to find a more lovely spot in the carribean.

Family of 4 travelling with teens. After taking a dinghy from our sailboat to Gustavia, St. Barthelmy, make the short walk over the small mountain pass and feel the wind as you watch small planes drop out of the sky on to the tiny runway. Very cool! At the bottom of the walk, you'll be on St. Jean Beach. Lovely... More

We had a blast at St Jean Beach! The view is incredible and we enjoyed sailing around in the small sailboat we rented.

Visited the beach during our visit to Saint Barths. The beach was quiet and the water was fairly warm. Great day to spend the day.

A pristine sandy beach with calm waters for easy swimming. The trade winds are strong so you stay comfortable on your beach blanket. Fun to watch the planes take off.

This is the beach you want if the bar and restaurant scene is your thing. It's busy due to it's accessibility, central location, and food/beverage options. It's a white sand beach looking out over moored boats and shallow waters. Great beach for meeting others, and simply having a good time.

We spent an afternoon enjoying this beautiful location. It is easy to see why it is so popular. The views and beach are spectacular!
