Nice quiet beach, more topless then I though being so populated, but who is complaining watching beautiful young French bodies? Great for kids to play, but gets hot with little breezes after lunch.

This is the best beach to relax, and work on a perfect tan! Rent one of the Seabobs at Eden Rock! They are awesome, and will help you find all the sea turtles.

St. Jean is personally my favorite beach in St. Barths. It is centrally located with many many restaurants and bars around. Not to mention the crystal clear calm water. Perfect for couples and families.

Wear a certain t-shirt from wherever you are from and strike up a friendly conversation with a stranger. Smooth sand, wide range of beach rental playthings, beautiful view, three very distinctively different restaurants. Never overcrowded. A perfect daily or twice daily ritual.
