Widely regarded as one of the sexist islands in the Caribbean, St Barts has a characteristic chic French style. The island is beautiful with pale white beaches, powdery sand and gently swaying palm trees. The streets are lined with designer boutiques, restaurants are abundant and it hosts an exceptionally wealthy and international clientele.
The island is well organised and levels of service are high to accommodate its demanding guests. Vegetables arrive twice a week from France and excellent French wines are imported. The currency used is the euro.
At just eight square miles in size, the island has over 20 gorgeous beaches including the famous Flamands Beach, sugar-white Gouverneur Beach and stylish St Jean for the iconic Nikki Beach. Sealife is abundant and being a natural marine reserve the snorkelling and diving is superb. Foodies will be in heaven with French-style bars and restaurants: seafood is a speciality.
