Colombier is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in St Barth, with its extraordinary panorama of land and sea. Its geographic location is what makes it so special, as it is only accessible by boat or by foot via a brisk hike from La Petite Anse or a challenging climb down the hillside in Colombier. The walk takes about 30 minutes.
The sense of isolation is enhanced by the fact there is no construction in the immediate vicinity, except the old "Rockfeller" house, so that the beach feels very private. Photography Jim Graham
