St Barths

The jet set crowd has long had a love affair with the understated Caribbean beauty and chic French flavour of St Barths. Effortlessly opulent and undeniably stylish, at just eight square miles the island packs a punch, with white sands, designer boutiques, fine dining and ultra-luxe hotels. Peak season brings mega-yachts, Melissa Odabash bikinis and an exclusive Champagne lifestyle. Home to over 20 stunning beaches, this is a destination where Parisians come to lounge and the rich and famous show off their golden tans. 

If you can tear yourself away from your luxury hotel, Flamands Beach on the northwest shore is the best on St Barths. Wide creamy sands merge with rolling surf and bright blue seas for fantastic swimming, tranquil sunbathing and oceanfront dining straight from the tank at La Langouste. Sugar white Gouverneur Beach is an idyllic cove that’s perfect for snorkelling and Saline Beach has calm waters and beautiful sands. Learn how to sail at St Barth Yacht Club, bodysurf at Anse des Cayes and windsurf at Lorient. For a slice of seclusion take a catamaran to Colombier Beach, or for a day with the locals follow the 'it' crowd to St Jean for stylish bars, beachfront hotels, crystal clear waters and iconic Nikki Beach. The airport runway ends here and it’s a great place to spot small planes jetting in for the spine-tingling St Barths landing.

Live like a rock star

For sheer extravagance, rent the Rockstar Villa at Eden Rock, which has got to be one of the most indulgent villas out there! With four ultra luxurious king bed suites and two trendy cabins for teenagers, a private swimming pool, fully equipped gym, state-of-the-art music recording studio and screening room, and a choice of cars from the Rockstar garage, this is a fabulous option for that special occasion holiday with family or a group of friends.


Take the plunge in the yellow submarine

Being a natural marine reserve, this area is teaming with amazing underwater life and the diving and snorkelling is superb. But if you’d prefer to stay dry, join the Yellow Submarine for an hour’s tour, taking you under the surface for a chance to see thousands of colourful tropical fish, turtles and rays.


Go Dutch

If you can’t decide whether to visit the French or Dutch Caribbean this year, why not do both? St Barths is just a 15 minute flight from St Maarten but the islands are completely different in ambience and atmosphere. In contrast to the exclusive and chic St Barths where you’ll find expensive boutique shops, the more lively Dutch Caribbean island of St Maarten offers lots of nightlife, duty free shopping and a more laid back feel. It’s so easy to combine these two islands, so do speak to us about your options.
