Tiny, sophisticated St Barth’s is a mountainous island with steep and winding roads revealing breathtaking vistas around every bend. This undeveloped island has a distinct French cosmopolitan atmosphere, with small boutique hotels rather than large resorts. Rolling hills, picturesque villages and broad valleys are surrounded by coral reefs, crystal clear waters and blue-green lagoons. A favourite retreat for the rich and famous, St. Barth’s is renowned for its peaceful atmosphere, great scenery, friendly people, French food and wines, and idyllic sun, sand and sea. Scott Dunn’s highlights for St Barths:
- Explore and relax on St Barths stunning beaches. For white sand head to the western shores, yet for a more rugged and untouched stretch of beach, try Anse de Gouverneur.
- St Barths is known for its delightful local handicrafts, browse markets in the village of Corossol for woven goods.
- Spend the day in Gustavia, St Barths capital. Gustavia has a pretty harbour and a historical fort.
