Plage de Gouverneur

Top choice in St-Barthélemy

Cradled by high cliffs and untouched nature, Gouverneur is a gorgeous, broad, secluded sandy beach fringing a U-shaped bay. It’s splendid for sunbathing and for picnics. The lack of visitors – even in high season – means beachgoers often sunbathe au naturel. It's at the end of a steep road – watch for turtle crossings!
