Located within a protective bay, Grand Cul de Sac Beach is a calm and shallow lagoon famed for its remarkable beauty and ideal conditions for water sports. Teeming with marine life and coloured with shades of blue and green, Grand Cul de Sac offers a variety of unique and exciting activities to enjoy.
Characterised by red rooftops that peer above tropical forestry above the glistening Caribbean ocean, Gustavia is St. Barths glamorous and lively capital. Famous for its boutique-lined streets and home to some of the best restaurants in the Caribbean, Gustavia is a must-see on any Caribbean holiday.
Hidden gems of the island, Grand Fond and Petit-Cul-de-Sac are St. Barthes' only natural pool formations. Situated off the island's southeastern coast, the natural pools are often disguised between rock formations and sand trails, making them difficult to spot and consequently, fairly unknown. While we recommend always consulting an expert guide, swimming in the natural pools is a delightful and rare experience.
One of the island's most secluded, Colombier Beach is best known as a gateway to the marine life-rich cape of L'Ane Rouge and as one of the island's least visited beaches. Inaccessible via public roads, Colombier Beach can only be reached via boat from the port of Gustavia or on foot from Petite Anse, so those who venture out can enjoy the beach almost to themselves.
