Features
Free, Popular with locals, Off the beaten path

This unspoiled, secluded spot appeals to adventurous types, since you can only get here by boat or on foot. Rather than starting from the hilltop in Colombier (a 20-minute hike down, which is a lot harder coming back up), it's easier to take the path that begins just past Flamands Beach, near the Auberge de la Petite Anse. Wear plenty of sunscreen, and pack food and necessary gear (umbrellas, chairs, sunscreen) since there are no facilities or lifeguards at the beach. David and Peggy Rockfeller once owned the land surrounding Colombier (you can still see their villa in the hills), so don’t be surprised if you hear it called Rockefeller beach.
