Shell Beach, Saint-Barthélemy

From series “Most Fabulous and Magic Beaches”
Lenght: 1,000 meters.

The Caribbean has always been associated with amazing scenery and incredibly beautiful beaches. One of the most magical places of the planet - Shell Beach - is located on the island of St. Bartholomew. As you can guess from the name, the main feature of this picturesque beach is that it’s rich in shells of different colors. This coast became shelly because of strong currents and storms, which for hundreds of years shaped the landscape of the coastline.

Shell Beach, Saint-Barthélemy Each hurricane brings a huge new portion of shells on the coast of the island of St. Bartholomew. So, guests of the unique beach don’t feel lack of souvenirs. The only thing worth remembering is a necessity to have a footwear with you. Without it, a walk on the beach is not only uncomfortable, but also quite dangerous. Fairly large and sharp shells at the coast may harm the feet.

The length of the unique beach is about 1 000 meters. Hikers and those who like to relax in secluded atmosphere like the place. Despite the fact that the Shell Beach is known to thousands of travelers and enjoys great popularity among them, it doesn’t feature traditional touristic infrastructure. For many years, it has being able to keep the natural beauty. That’s best place for those who have long wanted to look for beautiful shells at the coast. Next - Anse Source d Argent

Top destination around Shell Beach - Saint Martin

The most important monument of the whole island is situated not far from the farm (Parrot Ville Bird Park) – the Border Monument sculpture in honor of the separation from the island. Perhaps this is the only place in the Caribbean islands where the border can be crossed more than a dozen times a day – however, it should be noted, that the monument is almost the only difference between parts of the island. That aside, for those who wish to make great photos, the place fits perfectly. Among other sculptures that tourists will consider interesting to visit in Sint Maarten, it is worth mentioning the Brown Pelicans monument located in Simpson Bay.

Concordia Hill (Mont des Accords) – the summit on the border of the Dutch and French parts of the island – will be another must-see spot when visiting the sights of Sint Maarten. The mountain has remarkably fantastic views that will amaze even the most sophisticated tourist. The most important attractions of the island (any part of it) are the incredibly picturesque beaches and bays of Sint Maarten. They have long been the hallmark of the island and attract hundreds of tourists to visit the “little paradise”.
