Anse du Gouverneur, St. Barthelemy

A quiet, unspoiled beach, Anse du Gouverneur nestles itself among the hills, with white sand and crystal blue waters. Due to the secluded nature of the beach, it serves as a popular spot for nude sunbathing. Relax on the sand or snorkel around the rocks, with rolling hills covered in green flora providing a scenic backdrop. Remember to bring your own food and drinks, as no restaurants or services operate in the area. The road from Gustavia offers spectacular views, and legend has it that pirates' once buried treasure at the beach.
