We have already told you about some beaches of our island and the luxury villas in St Barts that Le Barth Villa Rental offers you to stay near these beaches. Today we want to tell you about Gouverneur Beach in St Barts, one of the favorite beaches for locals. Stay with us and get to know this peaceful beach in the south of the island.

How to get & what to do in Gouverneur at St Barts?

Gouverneur Beach is in the southwestern region of the island, about 3.5 km from the town of Gustavia. You can drive to the parking lot, just a few steps from the white sand of this beach. When you find yourself on the shore of the beach, you will know that the trip to Gouverneur Beach at St Barts will have been worth it.  It is a hilly and narrow road, so we recommend driving with caution.

The mountains form a small bay at Gouverneur Beach, with almost non-existent waves, making it one of St Barts' favorite beaches for swimming and snorkeling. The lack of waves means that the water remains calm, and you can fully appreciate the spectacle of colors that changes throughout the day.

Gouverneur at St Barts is one of the most frequented beaches by families or individuals looking for a place to relax and enjoy a quiet day. The stretch of sand is great for sunbathing while your loved ones have fun in the water. There is very little shade at Gouverneur Beach, so keep this in mind when visiting the area, as well as packing a snack and something to drink because there are no restaurants in the area.

If you want to get to Gouverneur in style, you can do so by boat on one of the many sailing tours that exist on the island. For many of the boats that sail around the island, a stop at this spectacular beach is a must. Contact our concierge service at Le Barth Villa Rental, we can arrange a boat trip for you to get to know the island and see the spectacular view of Gouverneur Beach from the sea.
