I am having such a great time doing research on some of the best beaches around the world for my January 2, 2019 ABC's Let's Talk Live segment. Part of the research is making sure I pick a diverse selection of public/private beaches, resort hotels, luxury hotels, affordable hotels and, in general, beautiful beaches in fabulous countries. I also want to make sure I pick some family-friendly ones. Lucky for me, during my research, I came across Les Ilets de la Plage.
Located on St Jean Beach in Saint Barths, this is a very budget friendly hotel (485 euros a night in high season) near an absolutely impeccable beach. Look at those waters!

The resort itself is quietly understated with a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom layouts either on the beach itself or among the hillside’s lush tropical gardens. All villas have concierge services, as well as full kitchen facilities, air conditioning in the bedrooms, a daily maid service and a daily delivery of fresh breads and pastries right to the door. Also there is free wi-fi.
For those who want a pool, the beach cabana by the central pool area has complimentary tea and coffee available all morning.
