St Barts Luxury Caribbean Island

Location

Situated in the French West Indies, St. Barts is a part of the Leeward Islands in the northeastern corner of the Caribbean Sea. Only eight square miles of hills form this prestigious rock, tropical climates give 360 days of sunshine a year and temperatures ranging from 72°F to 86°F, including incredibly warm waters year-round. From the lighthouse hill, panoramic views of the neighboring islands Statia, Saba, and St. Martin are seen in the distance.


Beaches

More than a dozen beaches line the coast of the island beckoning beach-goers to soak in the azure waters. White powdery sands welcome total relaxation, whether you choose a lively beach like St. Jean (near Eden Rock) and popular beach-front hotspots Nikki Beach and Pearl Beach La Plage, or a more secluded stretch, like Saline Beach capped with rocky hillsides that offer spectacular unobstructed views.


History

The Island gained its name in 1493 after Christopher Columbus’s brother, Bartoloméo. After the arrival of the Italian explorer, St. Barts passed from rule under the French and Swedish, layering European history over hundreds of years. Today, the charm lies in the architecture found in the island’s capital of Gustavia where red-roofed Colonial style houses painted in bright colors rise no higher than a palm tree.


Cuisine

The renowned culinary culture of the island is predominantly French. A multitude of restaurants prepare local seafood, imported delicacies, and exotic flavors at some of the most sought-out gourmet establishments in the Caribbean including L’Esprit, Bonito, and Tamarin. Notable chefs from around the world frequently visit to get a taste of St. Bart’s world-class dining.
