St. Barthélemy Sights

Toiny Coast

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 03/10/2015

Fodor's Review

Over the hills beyond Grand Cul de Sac is this much-photographed coastline. Stone fences crisscross the steep slopes of Morne Vitet, one of many small mountains on St. Barth, along a rocky shore that resembles the rugged coast of Normandy. Nicknamed the "washing machine" because of its turbulent surf, it is not recommended even to expert swimmers because of the strong undertow. There is a tough but scenic hike around the point. Take the road past Le Toiny hotel to the top to the start of the trail.
