Shell Beach - St. Barts

While we were in St. Maarten, we took a side trip to St. Barts.  Talk about the lifestyles of the rich and famous.  St. Barts was too rich for my blood, but I enjoyed the visit.  I took this picture from the top of a cliff looking down on Shell Beach. 

Later, we walked down to the beach for a quick swim.  I’ve been to a ton of beaches and swam in most of the locations.  I’d say the water at this beach was the most clear I’ve ever seen.  It was amazing how clear the water was.  I think it had to do with the fact that the beach was made up of shells….thus called Shell Beach.  It didn’t have sand like most traditional beaches.  Therefore the water was super clear because there wasn’t any sand to get mixed into the water when the waves hit the beach….  At least that’s my theory.
