Formerly a Swedish colony, St. Barths is today a French Territory and has developed into a jet-set hot spot with small luxury hotels, great restaurants and bars and many elegant vacation villas. Paparazzi cameras alert - you never know which famous faces you might bump into here!
Though only 25 square km in size, St. Barths has more than 20 beaches which, like St. Martin/St. Maarten are all unique and easily accessible.

A car or scooter is recommended to see the island but be aware that the speed limit is just 20 mph!
Commuter planes leave St. Maarten's Princes Juliana Airport or the L'Espérance Airport Aéroport in Grand-Case to St. Barths regularly with a flight-time of approximately 10 minutes. For a more scenic (and economical) journey of under an hour, several ferries and day charter boats offer another way to explore this neighboring French island.
