The 5 Best Beach Clubs in St Barths

Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France

St Barths is one of the most favoured destinations for those exploring the French Caribbean via superyacht and with beach clubs as impressive as these it’s easy to see why. With visitors such as Roman Abramovich and Bill Gates spotted on superyachts in St Barths this holiday season, it’s one of the top destinations to head to if you’re after stunning beaches, great food and luxurious settings.

Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France

One of the most popular new destinations on the island is Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France. Located on the beach at Baie des Flamands, it offers 40 bungalows and villas along with a stunning beach club on which you can dine, drink and soak up the sun. Visit La Case de l'Isle or La Cabane de l'Isle for unrivalled beachside cuisine.

Nikki Beach

Nikki Beach is now something of an iconic brand that conjures up images of flowing white drapery, the perfect perch and a crowd of celebrities and VIPs dancing to the sounds of international DJs. As an insider's guide to St Barths must-visit, it has a very particular scene and from 11am to 7pm crowds flock here to party. Kicking back with bottles of Champagne in the Nikki Beach signature tepees will be a roll call of well-heeled clientele. Jay Z and Beyoncé, Mariah Carey and Bono have all indulged at Nikki Beach St Barths. The food is reliably good and includes creative seafood entrees, fresh salads and top grade sushi. Unashamedly jet set, Nikki Beach is something to be experienced.

Eden Rock's Sand Bar

The Eden Rock Hotel in St Barths has a top class reputation and attracts rock stars and celebrities as well as a loyal following of regular clients. Positioned on St John’s beach, the Sand Bar was conceptualised by the international chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and brings an element of New York’s ABC Kitchen to the sun and sand backdrop of St Barths. The seafood is truly exceptional, the cocktails are flawlessly mixed and the pizzas are some of the best in the Caribbean, which is why it’s one of the best for those without their own superyacht beach clubs. Sitting on the beach beholding the beautiful Baie de St Jean and enjoying a long lunch at the Sand Bar is a day well spent, and the weekly brunch is a must.

Dõ Brazil

You might think, why go for Brazilian when you’re on one of the best beaches in the Caribbean? But don’t let that dissuade you from visiting this fantastic beach hang out. As well as having spectacular surroundings away from the crowds, the food and drinks are sensational.

The restaurant is co-owned by tennis player and French songstress Yannick Noah and occupies a prime position on Shell Beach ideal for sunsets and sundowners. The atmosphere is more casual than many other hip St Barths spots and the town centre is a short walk away. Not that there’s much of a reason to leave this St Barths beach club: order a South American stew, a rum punch and enjoy the live band on the beach.
