St. Barths

In the treasure-packed Caribbean, St-Barthe´lemy, more fondly known as St. Barths, is a multifaceted jewel. This exquisite island blends French urban flair with a lush tropical landscape of soaring mountains, isolated stretches of sun-soaked, powder-soft sand, windswept cliffs, scrubby green hills, flowering gardens filled with bougainvillea, hibiscus and fragrant frangipanis, and turquoise bays dotted with myriad sailboats. The sophisticated French island of St. Barthelemy is situated in the Eastern Caribbean near St. Maarten and St. Kitts & Nevis. The 25m2 (9.7mi2) area of the island is made of volcanic rock and encircled by shallow reefs. The main harbor and point of entry to the island is located in Gustavia, the tiny capital of St. Barths. The island combines French flamboyance with the laid-back Caribbean lifestyle to create a truly exciting luxury, culture and dining experience. It is a popular destination for celebrities and the world’s elite, especially during the festive season in December. Embrace the lifestyle that you have always desired on the island of St. Barths. Picturesque beaches, natural wonders, aquatic adventures, shopping at designer boutiques and enjoying the spectacular ocean views from the hotels and restaurants will ensure a memorable island getaway!

St-Barth is a duty-free port and features the top-shelf designer labels: Hermès, Cartier, Louis Vuitton et al. But you'll also find small, locally owned labels, such as Made in Saint-Barth and Ligne Saint-Barth, which sell name-branded sweatshirts, cloth bags and cosmetics. Look out, too, for Véronique Vandernoot's hand-painted ceramic tiles depicting St-Barth beaches at her workshop/boutique Les Petits Carreaux. The line between drinking and dining establishments is blurred on St-Barth, with many places offering both. Except at destination restaurants, it's usually fine to order a drink if you're not eating. Nightlife on the island is generally low-key but Modjo, in St-Jean, is a wildly popular club. Fly from a destination of your choice to Antigua or from Miami within 3 hours, whereafter you will take a 45 minute shared or private chartered flight to St. Barths.

The local currency is Euro (EUR) although US Dollar is widely accepted. French is the official language, but English is widely spoken. The time zone is UTC/GMT -4 hours.

Weather

May through June is the best time to visit St. Barths. The weather is nearly perfect. From December through April, the sun is especially scorching. High season in St. Barth is typical for the Caribbean, from mid-December through mid-April. Clouds and showers sometimes interrupt the warm weather, especially during the fall. Avoid the rainy season in September, October and November.

July and August are normally associated with the Atlantic hurricane season. In fact, many St. Barths hotels and restaurants close down. But in reality, there’s less rain on average than you’ll see in late spring or fall. September to November poses the worst threat for hurricanes, and even if there isn’t a bad storm you can expect plenty of rain. By November the clouds clear and the tourism business begins to gain momentum.
