Nature / Park · Beach
A quiet, unspoiled beach, Anse du Gouverneur nestles itself among the hills, with white sand and crystal blue waters. Due to the secluded nature of the beach, it serves as a popular spot for nude sunbathing. Relax on the sand or snorkel around the rocks, with rolling hills covered in green flora providing a scenic backdrop. Remember to bring your own food and drinks, as no restaurants or services operate in the area. The road from Gustavia offers spectacular views, and legend has it that pirates' once buried treasure at the beach.

  • This was my second favorite beach on the island. Easy to access from the parking area. Smaller than Saline but still a very nice beach.  more »
  • The beach is easy to find off the main road. Parking is good. On a popular day, finding parking may be a challenge. Free of charge to go on the beach. No shaded areas. Bring your own umbrella or rent....  more »
  • This is my second favorite beach on the island. Beautiful crescent beach that is easy to get to and lots of light late in the day. Stare at the cliffs to your left and eventually you will see the goats.
  • Grosse vague
