Experience St. Barths
Jewel of the French Caribbean, St. Barthélemy (St. Barths) is a celebrity favorite. Small and unspoiled (8 sq. miles), this exquisite island with a French flair offers a relaxed and restorative break. Its sublime sunsets, fine dining options, and designer boutiques add to its laid-back vibe. And its tropical landscape of soaring mountains and pristine beaches offer a range of activities—from windsurfing and kitesurfing, to sailing and snorkeling. Whatever your choice, our Liberty Travel consultants can custom design a St. Barths vacation package perfect for you.
Affectionately abbreviated as St. Barts, this secluded nook was originally named by Christopher Columbus for his brother. Today, the most notable association made of this eight-mile island is as a playground for the world’s elite, where luxe villas are hidden in steep hills and beachfront accommodations put snorkeling, diving, windsurfing, sailing, and fishing within steps. Impressions yachts line the harbor in Gustavia, and fabulous duty-free shopping for the finest in couture goods is never far. Premier French dining meets fresh local seafood, and this European nation’s influence is apparent everywhere, with ingredients imported twice weekly.
More than a dozen public and free beaches bring visitors back to a Caribbean state of mind, and the live music from spots like La Plage, Nikki Beach, and others exist to entice you to mingle with other international vacationers and VIPS.
