Gorgeous Beach by our Villa

We stayed at Fleur de Lune which is a 5 minute walk to one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Clean sand and clear waters!

Lovely and clean stretch of beach in St. Barth's. This beach is "clothing optional", but when I was there most people wore swimsuits. Walking distance to a few good restaurants.

I think this place is heaven on earth. It's a stroll from the car park via a path and a dune but once you get to the beach it's stunning. No concessions again and no shade but a long lovely beach with some waves. The water isn't a mill pond so small kids might not love it but it's really... More

Saline was one of our favorite beaches in St Barts. It was a couple minute walk to get to from the parking lot. The beach is big and wide. It does not have any restaurants or hotels like St Jean. We loved the more natural setting at Saline.

its a beautiful beach was rough when we visited- beware there people walking nude- (only men this visit sort of funny seeing them walk but they all have hats on?) and some topless women- wasn't busy when we went- no facilities but restaurants nearby for lunch definite worth a visit..

Beautiful secluded Caribbean beach. White sand, turquoise colored water and, to the right, plenty of shape to provide respite from the sun. Plenty of space on the beach. Best time of day, after lunch! No facilities. Bring your own water bottle.

If you visit St Barths for the day from St Martin, be sure to stop at this beach for a few hours. It is quite secluded and not many people come here. I would go as far as calling it a hidden gem. You park your car in a designated parking and then walk to the beach. The road is... More

One of the top beaches in St Barth. It is never crowded compared to most places. It takes a bit of a hike over the rocks but the view from the dunes makes it all worthwhile. Bring your own umbrella and drinks as there is no service on the beach as it is completely natural with not buildings, cabanas, etc.... More

Good evening, my wife and I are very interested in our first visit to the Caribbean, while we have been to Bermuda and Asia many times, this would be our first visit to the Islands. We are extremely interested in your help to set up a perfect match. We love nudism but also enjoy dressing formally on occasion. First, if you do not mind, some questions:

1. How close are you to the beach, it does not seem like you are directly on the water?

2. How difficult is it to travel to your location, do you know if there is any direct flights from Boston?

3. What is the shopping like in the area, can we walk there?

4. We would be traveling with arrival on 30/July, departure on the 5th/Aug, depending on things, we might consider making the departure on the 6th?

5. Could you tell us what units might be available for these dates, and what is the rate for each, considering two adults? Please specify in US$.

6. What is the cost to rent a car for a few days, we probably would not want one for the entire stay?

7. What would you require for a deposit and when would balance be due?

8. We know this is clothing optional, and have been AANR members for years, so understand the proper use of cameras, but my wife is into photography and loves pictures, using common sense, and care about taking pictures, is this a problem at your location?

9. What is the best process for doing reservations?

10. What is in the local area to see, with or without clothing?

Anything else you can forward us would be very much appreciated and assist us in our planning.
