The beach in Saint Jean is without doubt one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, along with Flamands. It is divided into two parts, separated by the Eden Rock hotel. The larger part to the left, is close to the airport runway, and visitors enjoy watching the aerial ballet of the small planes.
Eden Rock, Emeraude Plage, and Tom Beach, Ilets de la Plage…Luxury hotels and villas line the bay and are renowned for their perfect location, on the beach yet just a few minutes from Gustavia. The beach is also idyllic for swimming or a day with the family, enjoying lunch “feet in the sand,” in the hotel restaurants. The beach in St Jean to the right of Eden Rock is smaller and the water is generally very calm. This is where Nikki Beach is located.
Magnificent beach, one of the most popular for tourists
Windsurfing, paddle boards, canoes...
One of the flattest beaches, the right side near Nikki Beach is a perfect spot for swimming
Near the restaurant, Nikki Beach, shallow water is perfect for kids
