Saint Barths

Saint Barth’s lives and breathes relaxation and luxury. For that quintessential island paradise, look no further.

Overview

If your aim is to unwind in a tropical paradise, this might just be the place for you. With 22 white sandy beaches, a dramatic rugged landscape, and an emphasis on the finer things in life, Saint Barth’s provides the perfect island escape.

It’s small French island in the West Indies that has been called the St.Tropez of the Caribbean. The island has a rhythm of its own that mixes l’art de vivre with a laid-back tropical ease. Bijoux is a word that springs to mind when we think of St Barth’s. The atmosphere is upmarket, with brasseries instead of beach shacks and a sense of French flair at every turn.

The capital of Gustavia, whose name stems from the island’s spell under Swedish rule, is an understandably popular base. Rub shoulders with the rich and famous, spot French, Swedish, English and Carib influences in the architecture, and indulge in the freshest seafood in the harbour as you watch luxury yachts sail by.

If you’re looking for a break from the sun lounger, take to the crystal-clear sea and try your hand at the plethora of water sports on offer. Surfing and windsurfing are popular on the Atlantic north coast, while the more sheltered beaches are the right spot for jet skiing or paddle boarding.

When to go

As with the majority of the Caribbean islands, December to April are the best months to visit as the weather is at its best. December is the busiest of all so book early to avoid disappointment.

It’s amazing to think that I didn’t get on a plane until I was 19, when I started my first job in travel.
