Shell Beach, Gustavia
(4.2/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
In close proximity to the harbor, Shell Beach distinguishes itself with millions of seashells that cover its sand. Overlooked by an old fort, the small lagoon offers a nice spot for swimming, relaxing, and, of course, collecting colorful shells and seaglass. Hang out and have a tasty meal at the popular bar and restaurant on site; sunbathe; or try snorkeling in the crystal clear water. Don't forget to bring sandals or flip-flops, as the shells can be uncomfortable to walk on. Our St. Barthelemy travel itinerary maker makes visiting Shell Beach and other St. Barthelemy attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
