What to do
Gouveneur Beach

Gouveneur Bay has brilliant cobalt waters ideal for snorkeling and swimming, a fine stretch of white sand and relatively few visitors. The beach offers great views of Saba, St. Eustatius, and St. Kitts, and is a popular spot for nude sunbathing.

Shell Beach

Shell Beach it’s the only major beach located “in town”, in the heart of the capital city of Gustavia. The beach has calm waters and is a welcome respite after a day of shopping. For a little adventure, there’s the opportunity to do some cliff-diving, and the Do Brazil restaurant — co-owned by tennis legend Yannick Noah — offers lunch, dinner, and cocktails by the sea.
