My husband and I wanted to take advantage of being kids free and took on the adventure of hiking to Colombier beach. The hike down was fun and beautiful a bit long, 20 minutes or so, you must wear sneakers or hiking appropriate shoes, because flip flops or sandals can be down right dangerous! Once on the beach, every slip/fall,... More

This quaint beach is a bit off the beaten path. We hiked over a mountain to get to it and some people prefer to come by boat. The water is refreshing and spectacular. Quite the adventure!

Get your exercise hiking to the beach from the small parking area above. A 20-30 minute journey of modest intensity. Beach is great but not the best on the island.

Hike down here and spend half the day at the beach. Bring a picnic and backpack with plenty of water. No services here. No bathroom. You can hike the mountain trail from Colombier Lookout or the cliff trail via Flamands/Hotel Chevel Blanc area.

Colombier beach was very much worth the 30 minute trek with young kids to get to. The beach was not crowded as it's only accessible on foot or by boat. There are no restaurants or hotels, just simple, beautiful scenery.

One must visit Colobier Beach once on their trip to St B - if only to work off all of the delicious meals and wine on the hike there! It's more private than most other beaches and the views are very special.

This is one of our favorite beaches and I almost hesitate to write a positive review because I don't want anyone else to go there. First, its a hike of around 20-25 minutes to get there and please wear your Nikes to do so because its a rocky moderately difficult terrain at some points, Unless of course you have a... More

You can only reach this beach on foot from either the end of Flamands Beach over a goat trail, or down the hillside steps from the top of Colombier (much harder). Once you arrive you will immediately understand why so many boats come here to anchor and swim off their boats. There is no protection from the sun so bring... More

With free mooring balls, this is a great anchorage. Northerly swells make it rolly, but that doesn't happen often. The hike from the beach around to Fromand Bay is beautiful! It takes about 25 minutes. You might see tortoises, goats and the occasional hermit crab. The beach is great and there's lots of room for swimming, snorkelling and sun bathing.... More
