Even with all the luxury and hustle and bustle, St. Barth’s is a beautifully preserved island with amazing hiking and secluded beaches. No chairs, restaurants, or much human inhabitance at all – just the sand and the ocean and maybe a couple of sailboats floating in the bay. It’s so refreshing and beautiful and natural.
One of my favorites among these beaches is Colombier. Located on the western tip of the island, this beach is not directly accessible by car. After a serene 20-minute hike down to the bay and voila, a beautiful uninhabited beach appears. With only about 4 other people relaxing and having a picnic it was completely empty.
Beautiful rock formations sprawled along the shore and the sailboats bobbing out in the twinkling bay made this somewhat of a magical spot and great for exploring. Although I didn’t have a chance to do this, bringing along snorkeling equipment is recommended, as there is Starfish scattered along the sea floor close to the beach.
