|About these ratings|
Many never see this northern beach unless they're staying in a nearby hotel. And this is a real shame: Travelers who have been to Anse des Flamands agree that it’s the most gorgeous option for sunning and swimming on all of St. Barts. According to a family on TripAdvisor: "Flamands Beach was our hands-down favorite because it's slightly out of the way from the more bustling areas of Gustavia and St. Jean." Luckily, daytrips to the area are convenient, and Flamands has plenty of area eateries and facilities should you get hungry, thirsty or more. Flamands also offers a little palm-tree shade (rare on St. Barts' beaches), which could come in handy to combat the glare from the blinding sand. If you have enough energy, try the semi-strenuous hike from this beach to the nearby dormant volcano that some believe gave birth to St. Barts.
