Anse de Grande Saline, St. Barthelemy

With sugar-like sand and crystal blue waters, Anse de Grande Saline remains an untouched gem. Dunes surround the wide beach, with excellent snorkelling and swimming spots available. Despite its popularity it is considered one of St Barts' most secluded beaches. Part of the natural beauty of this beach means there are no facilities, so take lots of water and a picnic. Bring some form of shelter, as you'll find very little shade. For Anse de Grande Saline and beyond, use our St. Barthelemy trip planner to get the most from your St. Barthelemy vacation.

There is a restaurant near the entrance but nothing on the beach so bring a cooler and umbrella for shade if needed. On the far east end of the beach there's a private cove and it's possible to sunbathe nude.
  • Best beach in St Barth! Long secluded beach with good waves for bodysurfing. Naturists on either side of the beach. Clothed tourists in the center. Good snorkeling along the cliff and the small reef in front of the beach.
