Red roofed buildings speckle the lush tropical landscape in Gustavia, St. Bart's tiny, relaxed Caribbean capital whose historic sites can be reached in one day of trekking around town. 17th century forts line the harbor, from Fort Karl in the north to Fort Gustaf with its lighthouse and cannons in the south. Near Fort Gustaf is the popular Shell Beach, where beachcombers rove for sparkling shells. The town's many duty-free boutiques call to shoppers while cozy cafes offer views over the harbor.

This beach is littered with shells for that perfect vacation memento.
This beach is a quick 10minute walk from downtown where the Ferries drop off. It’s a picturesque crescent shaped beach with beautiful views. The water is the perfect temperature. It’s not particularly crowded, but it is a lovely shell lined beach. The restaurant offers high end Mediterranean food, drinks and chaise lounges ($$$) But it’s a great place to spend the afternoon.

Relax on this shady, isolated beach - after that 30 minute walk to get there from the main road, you'll need it.
Colombier is a beach that is part of a natural marine reserve. We went by boat, but you can also reach it on foot, if you enjoy hiking.
It is a secluded beach, with white sand and with hardly anyone on it. It's perfect for snorkeling or just swimming. Like paradise!!!

Spectacular beach with calm waters, not too many people. Great for a calm long distance swimming, scuba, kayaking and boarding. Marine life is absolutely abundant, easy to see huge turtles.

Drive out to Grand Fond, park and hike about twenty minutes to the Blow Hole, the Washing Machine, and the Natural Pools! Wear good hiking shoes (keens, etc) as the trek can be rough and rocky in spots, and be sure to bring your camera!

You won't find crowds at this beautiful beach, but you won't find shade either, so bring an umbrella.
We came in the afternoon after enjoying Shell Beach. By around 2pm the parking lot had several available spaces. We had no parking problems.
The drive down to the beach is gorgeous. The road is nice and the home beautiful.
The beach itself was our favorite. It was protected by the hills around it but still had some waves coming in. The beach was a good size and close proximity to the parking lot.
There aren't any restaurants or shops on the beach, so it's peaceful.
It's just a really convenient, gorgeous place to spend a few hours.

Watch out prudes, this beach is not for the shy: nude sunbathing is the norm at this beach.
Natural surroundings and topless along with nude sun bather, but who's complaining? Overall, great place to get that all over tan. Watch the sun though. My wife never needs sun screen and is now tan as a berry, but after a few days she put on bock, which I never seen her do before. That sun is a scorcher.

Climbing lots of stairs to reach the lookout spots was well worth the effort. We could see back into town as well as the gorgeous Shell Beach area. We think the sign identifying other Islands was wrecked by the hurricane, but it enough of it was there that we could see St Martin, St Kitts and Nevis as well as other distant Islands.

This Art Gallery is managed by the association of Saint Barth artists. Founded in 2016 to promote local artists, it organizes Art Parties in 5 star hotels and Art Clubs in villas. 70 painters, photographers and designers are members, out of which 11 are showcased in the gallery.
A selection of small shops good enough to spend some time for shopping. Located by the beach is very easy to find.Rogerio, Thank you for your feed back. It seems though that you are giving an advice on the whole Villa Creole shopping center and not specifically on our Art Gallery.

Some sand, some surf, some sun, some shade: this beach has all the ingredients for a good time.
Perfect beach. Absolutely stunning. My husband and I scheduled an outdoor couples massage at the Cheval Blanc spa which was amazing and then we spent the day relaxing at Flamands. The water is crystal clear and just beautiful to look and swim in. It was an all around perfect day and I would highly recommend the spa at Cheval Blanc as well.
