Do not be deterred by some of the reviews indicating a difficult walk. It is not the case. It’s an easy 5-10 minute walk from the parking lot to the beach. Once there, it is probably the most beautiful beach on the island. Perfect sand and water. Not a single building in site. We visited in October and the waves were medium sized, good for body surfing.

As indicated throughout the reviews, there are no facilities here. Nor is there really any shade. So come prepared

Beautiful beach but our least favorite on the island. The waves are strong, no real shade from trees to hide from and nothing to see snorkelling.

We preferred St Jean and Columbier by far.

Parking is plentiful compared to other beaches.

A short walk from the parking lot, Saline is a lovely beach. Nice swimming and sunning. Wide sandy beach area.

This is a white sand beach, beautiful view, miles long, the biggest credit is less peoples.
You need to walk from the carpark about 10 minute, walk on the small sand dune up and down. Worth it. Remember to bring your parasol.

We like this beach a little better than Governour. The sand is a little more flat for walking, and the beach is a little longer. The water temperature in early December was refreshing. There is a short uphill hike from the parking lot to get to the beach.

Beautiful beach. Longer than Gouverneur but more difficult to get on. You have a decent walk from the parking lot and midway you need to climb up rocks and stones. If you have trouble with rocky hills this may not be the place. Definitely need shoes as it is difficult in flip flops.

Once on the beach, it is beautiful with nice warm water. The beach is long enough for walking. With dunes behind you and mountains on both sides, the beach is completely secluded. This allows it to be a perfectly comfortable place to be topless (common on St. Barts) or fully nude without many onlookers. Clothing optional is towards either end of the beach. The day we were there, there may have been 30 people on the entire beach.

Since it was further from our villa and more difficult to get on, we only spent one day at Saline, but one of the best beaches on the island of St. Barts. Like Gouverneur, there are no facilities or services. You need to bring your own chairs, umbrella, food, and beverages.

Saline and Governeur are the two best beaches on St. Barts

Worth the visit!

Would have been 5 stars if not for the access to the beach.

Anse de Grande Saline is a wonderful beach. With dunes behind you and mountains on both sides, the beach is completely secluded. This seclusion allows it to be a perfectly comfortable place to be topless or fully nude without many onlookers. While popular, I've never seen it too crowded. There are no businesses on the beach, so you must bring in all of your own food, drinks, and shade.

Its about a 15 min hike to the beach from the parking lot. Its not too busy but the water can be a little rough depending on the day.

After visiting St. Jean, Flamands, Lorient, and Govenuer I decided Saline was my favorite beach on St. Bart’s (Gov was second fav). No facilities and a nice calm ambiance. Pack a bag of stuff and take it with you. No beach bars or restaurants walkable so it’s best to pack a little picnic. It’s a nice long strand of beach to walk and was never too crowded. The walk uphill then downhill from the parking lot is a nice little exercise and helps give the beach a somewhat remote feel. If in St. Bart’s it’s a great beach to spend a quiet peaceful afternoon and just watch the waves and hills.
