St Barts is one of the playgrounds of the rich and famous and it is wise to keep away from mid December for a month as prices are sky high. That is unless you are rich and famous!
Arriving by air from St Maarten in a light 12 seater plane onto one of the shortest landing strips in the Caribbean having flown over the azure waters surrounding the island is exciting.
A hire car is necessary to explore.Pick up at the airport and cross the road to the supermarket for provisions. If funds permit you may wish to stay at the Eden Rock. Alternatively there are apartments and villas aplenty to rent.
A short drive and you are in the Capital, Gustavia. Designer shops and gourmet restaurants are here as are the more reasonable priced outlets. In the harbour you will find the super yachts.
The island has a number of long white sand beaches which are a magnet for visitors but never feel over populated.Sometimes at the far end you may find some nudists!
St Barts is a jewel in the Caribbean Islands.
