Colombier is one of those hidden treasure of St Barths. The beach can only be accessed by foot on a 20 minute hiking trail or by boat. Many boats moor here and swim to shore to enjoy this fantastic beach. The beach is quiet and although it doesn’t have a huge amount of sand the beach does have really calm waters and is crystal clear to swim in. It is nice to come here for a few hours and enjoy the peaceful and tranquil atmosphere.
Top Tip: Go by boat for a totally amazing experience and you will see some tortoise too ! If you go by foot it is equally beautiful but take the easy route by walking from the Flamands side. You can park close to the entrance to the trail. Be sure to bring your trainers as it’s a little rocky in parts. Also take a cooler and picnic as it’s a 20 minute walk back if you get thirsty.
5. Flamands Beach
Flamands beach is one of the most popular in St Barths and rightly so. The beach offers wonderful white powdery sand between your toes and is a wonderful beach for a walk or jog. The beach can be rough and it is not advised to swim here especially in the winter months although some do. The views from the Isle de France are simply stunning and a lunch or a visit to the spa here is not to be missed.
Top Tip: The waves can be rough on Flamands beach in the winter time and it is not always safe for to swim here, especially for children. Enjoy a delicious lunch in the Isle De France Hotel while admiring the views.
