Anse du Gouverneur, St. Barthelemy

A quiet, unspoiled beach, Anse du Gouverneur nestles itself among the hills, with white sand and crystal blue waters. Due to the secluded nature of the beach, it serves as a popular spot for nude sunbathing. Relax on the sand or snorkel around the rocks, with rolling hills covered in green flora providing a scenic backdrop. Remember to bring your own food and drinks, as no restaurants or services operate in the area. The road from Gustavia offers spectacular views, and legend has it that pirates' once buried treasure at the beach.

  • This was my second beach in St. Bart’s (after Saline). Easy access from parking lot. The day I spent here the water was exceptionally calm and warm. Nice strand to walk though not as long as Saline...  more »
  • This is the best beach in St. Barths! I went to quite a few and this beach was calm, quiet, some heavy waves at the time but most pristine beach. Easy parking, no facilities but gorgeous beach.  more »

  • This is my second favorite beach on the island. Beautiful crescent beach that is easy to get to and lots of light late in the day. Stare at the cliffs to your left and eventually you will see the goats.
