Fodor's Expert Review Anse des Flamands
This is the most beautiful of the hotel beaches—a roomy strip of silken sand. Come here for lunch and then spend the afternoon sunning, enjoying long beach walks, and swimming in the turquoise water. From the beach, you can take a brisk hike along a paved sidewalk to the top of the now-extinct volcano believed to have given birth to St. Barth. Amenities: food and drink; toilets. Best for: snorkeling; swimming; walking.
