St. Barthelemy Vacation Travel

More About St. Barthelemy - Editor's Tips - Weather Maps & Dining

When to go?
St. Barts, St. Barths or St. Barthelemy is an island in the French West Indies that attracts a sophisticated set, mostly from November until April. Tropical storms do brew in the summertime, making for a balmy clime. In January, enjoy the Festivale du Musique. In April, appreciate a full week of Caribbean filmmaking during the annual St. Bart's Film Fest.

Where to stay?
Over half the guest rooms on St. Barts are in privately owned villas, cottages and apartments. The hotels tend to be the tiny here, with the largest boasting 75 rooms. St. Bart's hillside accommodations offer great views and breezes, while its beach-front properties of St. Jean, Lorient, Cul de Sac and Flamands let you dive and dip straight from your door.

What to do?
St. Bart's attracts a well-funded crowd who want good service and plenty of activities to indulge in. Visitors can dive, fish, sail, surf, windsurf, kite-surf, hike, horseback ride, play golf or tennis. To escape the sun, shop for French fashions in Gustavia, relax with a massage or make time for a mind-body workout at one of the island's many fitness centers. Dining well is St. Bart's main nighttime activity.
