Colombier Bay, St Barths

World-class beaches are one of the reasons why private yachts and  luxury yacht charters flock to the Caribbean. With some 28 island nations and more than 7,000 individual islands selecting the best beaches in the Caribbean is no small task but here are five of the finest to visit on a superyacht.

1. Colombier Bay

Turquoise waters, velvet sands and a few yachts at anchor in the near distance — Colombier Bay (or Anse de Colombier) in the greener north western corner of St Barths offers a quiet and tranquil alternative to the more vibrant beaches on the island, and one of the best picnic spots in the Caribbean. 

It's only accessible from the water or by two rural footpaths, one heading north east from Le Petit Morne Hotel and the other following the road west from Flamand Beach, the latter of which follows the coastline around the north of the island to Colombier Bay.

St Barths is well-known for it's calm waters, so if hiking isn't your ideal way to spend an afternoon, drop anchor and tender into Colombier Bay. As part of the Réserve Naturelle Saint-Barthelemy, it is a great spot for diving or snorkelling and visitors to the bay can hope to see grey reef sharks, lobsters, turtles and eagle rays. Divers should head straight to the Kayali wreck, one of the best dive sites in the Caribbean, to see an enormous array of marine life.
