All you need to enjoy Anse de Grande Saline are sunglasses and a smile – that's because this unspoiled beach is known for its nude, but discreet, sunbathers. This is a little ironic, because Grande Saline is also known for having inadequate shade (recent visitors suggest bringing an umbrella if you sunburn easily). You also won't find any restaurants in the immediate area, and visitors seem to like it that way, saying the vistas and surrounding scenery give beachgoers a break from modern civilization. 

If you're interested in Anse de Grande Saline, you'll find it stretching along the southern coast of St. Barts. You can drive here by following Rue Lubin Brin from Gustavia or taking D209 east from Baie de St-Jean. If you're looking for a more lively beach or one with a variety of of water sports, venture to Anse de Grand Cul-de-Sac or Baie de St-Jean
