Anse du Gouverneur, St. Barthelemy

A quiet, unspoiled beach, Anse du Gouverneur nestles itself among the hills, with white sand and crystal blue waters. Due to the secluded nature of the beach, it serves as a popular spot for nude sunbathing. Relax on the sand or snorkel around the rocks, with rolling hills covered in green flora providing a scenic backdrop. Remember to bring your own food and drinks, as no restaurants or services operate in the area. The road from Gustavia offers spectacular views, and legend has it that pirates' once buried treasure at the beach.

  • This is my second favorite beach on the island. Beautiful crescent beach that is easy to get to and lots of light late in the day. Stare at the cliffs to your left and eventually you will see the goats.
  • Great beach... I love if you want to see beautiful beaches go to the Cove of the Governor or Colombier or small cul-de-sac or Grand fond or saline or shell beach. Do not forget mask and fins to swim with the turtles and discover the seabed that are rich in fish. Good discovery...
