The first beach to greet arrivals on St. Bart’s, Gustavia Beach’s white sand and sparkling blue water set the blissful tone for the rest of the island. The water here is as calm as can be, the perfect place for children and beginner swimmers. Be sure to snag a reservation at Maya’s Restaurant, one of St. Bart’s most famous places to dine, where you will be delighted by the scrumptious Creole food.
This out-of-the-way beach is worth the journey to get there! Take a catamaran or hike a 25-minute trek along a goat path and find yourself in the epitome of tranquility, a peaceful spot that has become a favorite setting for yachts, spectacular sunsets and quiet sunbathing opportunities. Colombier Beach features fantastic snorkeling—it’s not uncommon to see plentiful tortoises, leopard rays, and lobsters beneath the surface of the crystal-clear water.
