Unless you happen to be best buddies with a Branson, you’ll struggle to find a destination more exclusive than the Caribbean island of St Barts. The island has become a hub for 5-star hotels, celeb spotting, showstopping dining experiences and the latest beauty trends and spa experiences. Plus, thanks to its volcanic heritage, there’s plenty of tropical scenery to make your Instagram followers green with envy. Discover why 2021 is the best time to visit St Barts. We can’t wait to show you around…
Even your arrival into St Barts Airport is designed to make you feel like an exclusive guest. First, you need to travel to St Maarten (SXM), San Juan (SJU) or Antigua (ANU), where you’ll hop onto a much smaller plane – typically just 12 passengers. We recommend travelling with Easyway, a Caribbean charter specialist with VIP services. They offer both private charters and scheduled commuter flights and can take care of your transfers.
The Caribbean island of St Barts might be famous for its beaches, but it’s also one of the best places to go for duty free shopping. Gustavia is the island’s capital and home to Louis Vuitton, Cartier and Ralph Lauren, as well as plenty of stylish boutique shops. You’ll find details of our favourites in our St Barts guide.
The best time to visit St Barts is between November and June, when temperatures hover at around 29°C and the occasional rain shower is referred to as ‘liquid sunshine’. During this time, the shops, bars and restaurants are open for business and the harbours are a people (and yacht) watching haven. The most popular time to visit is during the Christmas school holidays, when the rich and famous seek their winter sun – but the prices do reflect this.
We first fell in love with this beautiful island more than ten years ago and it continues to wow us with every visit. Whether you’re seeking a laid-back break or want to party all night, our St Barts guide will help you to make the most. Inside, you’ll find our favourite excursions, menus and hotels. We can even help you to find the perfect luxury villa – just ask about our VIP services.
