Glamorous Saint Barthélemy, better known as St. Barts or St. Barths, exudes a seductive blend of European sophistication, natural beauty, and relaxed island charm.
Blond-sand beaches are the starring feature. Backed by rolling green hills, they beckon from secluded coves or sprawl along quaint coastal villages, tempting tourists with clear waters and coral reefs.
Boutique hotels and private villas peek from behind veils of tropical foliage, making this sun-soaked island a natural magnet for movie stars and moguls.
Popular things to do in St. Barts include kitesurfing, kayaking, fishing, surfing, and sailing, and you can snorkel and dive the wrecks and fish-filled reefs, many of which are protected in a marine reserve. The island also promotes a packed calendar of festivals, celebrating everything from sporting events to movies and music.
