Colombier Bay, St Barths

The soft sand and sparkling shallows are at the top of the list of reasons to sail your  superyacht to the Caribbean — but with so many beautiful beaches to choose from, have a browse of our list of favourites before you set sail on a private yacht or indulge in a Caribbean charter.

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.
