With a level of exclusivity not found in many of its Caribbean neighbours, it’s no wonder that the well-to-do choose St Barts as their summer vacation destination of choice. Alongside ribbons of white sand beaches and azure-hued waters peppered with luxury superyachts, guests will love the charming gingerbread buildings of its capital, Gustavia. The island also has a temperate climate – April to June is the best time to visit – and you can indulge in some retail therapy here, too. Read on for our top reasons to visit St Barts.
Cruise around the beaches of St Barts for a week by booking a private cabin on a Dream Yacht Charter boat.
While St Barts is home to more sea animals than land, it doesn’t mean you won’t see some fascinating creatures on your stroll around the island. Look out for Cuban tree frogs and whistling frogs, geckos and iguanas. If you’re visiting over the winter months, be sure to keep an eye on the coastline as humpback whales migrate to the warm waters between St Barts and St Martin to reproduce.
