St. Jean Beach

The island's sexiest and scene-ist. Great to swim, play, and people watch, it boasts several toes-in-the-sand bars and bistros.

You should go there: To see the up-close-and-personal view of the little planes flying in – it's so St. Barth.

Why we love it: It's where all the action is, especially on Sundays at La Plage.
