Ringing the glamorous island of St Barts are spotless strips of sand and ethereal turquoise waters creating renowned beaches that are exceptionally beautiful and extremely inviting. Below is a sneak peek at our top five picks.
1) St. Jean Beach
St. Jean Beach is one of the more popular beaches on St. Barts with beautiful sand and clear waters. The beach is also a haven for photographers looking to get pictures of airplanes taking off and landing.
Several hotels and restaurants are in the area, making it a convenient beach for island visitors. St. Jean is split into two beaches by the Eden Rock hotel, but both are lovely nonetheless, and just steps away from great shopping, dining, a plethora of beachfront hotels, restaurants, and other activities.
Like all of St. Barts’ beaches it has white sand and the calm waters make for good snorkeling.
