This tropical corner of paradise is home to charming beaches, truly luxurious hotels and impeccable service. St. Barts offers a holiday that you will remember for a lifetime. Picture St. Tropez, Monaco or Antibes, carrying an ambient air of sophistication and chic style combined with Caribbean charm, views and weather, it draws people back time and time again.
Thanks to its volcanic roots, St. Barts is entirely surrounded by coral reefs resulting in some fantastic dive spots to explore and snorkelling to enjoy, with the seas rich with marine life. St. Barts has a charming mix of true authentic soul and traditional French influences, this is one of the reasons for attracting the rich and famous to the island. With a range of French, West Indian and Creole culinary experiences and bountiful local fresh fish combined, the island has gourmet restaurants for every occasion.
The beaches on the windward side of the island such as St. Jean offer water sport experiences of true excellence with windsurfing being especially popular. On the leeward side the more protected beaches are relaxation in its definition. Anse du Colombier is truly idyllic with its azure clear waters and pristine shorelines. Only accessible by boat or a fairly steep 30 – 40 minute hike, it might seem like quite an effort, however the rewards are well worth it upon arrival!
St. Barts is by no means just a tropical paradise, it has chic shops, fine dining restaurants and impressive cocktail bars and hotels in which to be entertained. The harbour town of Gustavia is a combination of incredible tropical panoramas, 17th century forts, boutiques and is the perfect place to watch the sunset with a cocktail in hand.
