  • We walked here from the cruise ship. Took about 30 minutes with picture stops. Loved the clear turquoise waters and seeing the planes land and take off. Not much shade and chair rentals are $25-30...  more »
  • We always visited the airport side of St. Jean but made the effort (parking) to get onto the Nikki side. The last 4 days have been rather windy and with high waves. The airport side was impossible.....  more »

  • Beautiful beach for a quick diving.
  • Surprinsigly empty beach while close to Gustavia. It's very clean and beautiful, I guess the proximity to the airport leads the people away.
  • Maybe a little loud because of the proximity to the airport, but it is a beautiful beach with fun locations (Eden Rock, Nikki Beach, (Tom, but now) Pearl Beach). The water is easy to swim in. There is adequate parking across the street near Pearl Beach.
  • A dream beach. Fine sand, calm and transparent water
