Free, Popular with locals, Off the beaten path

Of the 22 beaches on St. Bart’s, this is easily in the top five because of its remote, end-of-the-earth feel. To get there, you have to drive down a twisty, narrow road from the town of Lurin—keep a look out for cars coming the other way. But the brave are rewarded with a beach that has great waves and plenty of space to spread out your towels, chairs, umbrellas. Before you is nothing but blue; behind you is all green, and up on the hillside, you can see several large homes perched in the forest. If you’re planning on going for most of the day, pack lunch, too, since there are no vendors (or lifeguards, for that matter, so be sure to watch if you’re kids are in the water). There’s a small area to park your car just in front of the beach entrance, and a little shade provided by the trees.
