Enjoy a billionaire's St. Barths beach
The beautiful, wild, pristine beach of Gouverneur offers crystal-clear water, very fine yellow sands, and gentle waves.

The whole bay of Gouverneur actually belongs to Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich. So, when you sit on this beach, in a way you are on his beach.

His villa is right behind the dune. If you look at the photo, you will see that the villa staff sets up very comfortable chaises longues every day for the billionaire to enjoy the beach.

In the true St. Barths spirit, anyone can come and stay on this beach. True, French law states that beaches cannot be private. But this is also what the island is like: people of all walks of life mixing on a tiny space. The plumber swims next the CEO. No fuss.
