Saint Barthélemy

Last Updated: 24 December 2017
This French owned Caribbean island is known to the locals as Saint Bart’s. The capital city, Gustavia, was once a sleepy fishing village, but due to the popularity of the island amongst the jet setters of the world, it now boasts luxury hotels and resorts, restaurants and high-end boutiques. Here you can shop duty free, party the night away or take some time out in a spa. In the harbour small fishing boats jostle for space with luxury yachts.

There are several colorful villages along the coast. Rolling green hills hide coves and bays of white sandy and shell beaches that are touched by perfectly clear warm aquamarine seas. Snorkel or dive in colorful reefs or sunken ships or in the marine reserve where turtles, spotted eagle rays and reef shark play.
