    Geez a wonderful thread hijacked by a spell check. I vote for St. Jean. Wonderful beach. Wonderful memories. Wonderful energy. Water is calm. Often warm enough to walk in instead of diving in. Love standing in the water reading my favorite book. The energy, the people watching and the windsurfing makes for a wonderful day. We rent chairs from Jean Michele and just sit and watch. While we have always traveled to the other marvelous beaches our favorite island has to offer…St. Jean hands down. Your thoughts?

    And CEC has the best pool of the many we have stayed at. Also Marigot Bay for floating during a full moon. I've been lucky to have experienced it multiple years. Thanks Dennis and no avatar.

    I believe we have stayed at 12 villas over the years and besides CEC have only gone back to the same villa twice. And an avatar can tell you a lot about a person. Thankyou Dennis for trying to help us when we were being scammed at a villa rental. I hold Mr. Carlton in the highest esteem.

    That puts the frosting on the cake when anyone gets an endorsement from amyb and I'm sure Phil.

    Is that because of the sargassum problem on the other beaches?

    Good overall and the walk is good exercise.

    Yes, it is ironic that we hike over to Colombier to get away from it all, yet the last few times we've gone (February) it has been quite busy with people coming and going nonstop by boat and via both walking paths. I expect it varies season to season and day by day. It isn't bad that so many people get to enjoy it and the beach can hold many who are willing to enjoy the serenity together. But, I have been bewildered by the company or club that brings big speakers to blast on the beach which seems to miss the point of the going to an isolated natural paradise in the first place. Oh well....

    I agree. Unfortunately as our paradise beckons masses, we need to search further and inward to realize what a wonderful place St. Barth is. It is still the same in its essence…we just need to
    continue scratching the surface. We just booked May 2023. See you on the beach.
