Grande Saline Beach

Grande Saline beach, St Barts

Grande Saline beach on St Barts (or St Barths) is probably the best known on this Caribbean island for two reasons. Firstly this beach is stunning; set in a wide bay on St Bart's less developed south coast Grande Saline has everything you would expect from a Caribbean beach. There is fine, golden-white sand, the water is brilliant aquamarine and to top it off the beach has a secluded feel where crowds are rare. This bay exudes natural beauty and has thankfully been left largely undeveloped although there are a few good lunch restaurants near the car park five minutes away.

The other notable feature of Anse de Grande Saline is nude sunbathing. As in much of the Caribbean naturism is somewhat frowned upon and most beaches on St Barthelemy prohibit nude bathing (although topless sunbathing is permitted), however, here at Grande Saline you will find plenty of beachgoers going au natural. Unlike many of the world's other naturist beaches Saline appears to be mostly frequented by the beautiful people!
