St. Jean Beach


Although it is the most popular beach on St. Barths, due both to its calm waters and convenient location, St. Jean Beach is relaxed and uncrowded. Watch the occasional small plane take off or land at the nearby airport, and stay to catch the golden glow as the sun sets on Eden Rock, the resort built on the rocky cliffs that divide the beach. Athletic families will find plenty to do, too. Lessons and rentals include beach chairs, kayaks, snorkels, windsurfers, catamarans and skim boards.

Food and restrooms can be found at several hotels and restaurants located on and near the beach.
