Day trip to St. Barths
There are so many choices on St Barts, from underwater adventure to watersports, great food, shopping, and excellent nightlife. Because the island is so small, one can experience them all.
HIT THE SHOPS
For any fashionistas travelling to St Barts a spot of retail therapy is a must.
The two main shopping areas are located in the capital of Gustavia and in St Jean which is by the airport. Gustavia offers a great selection of famous designer shops such as Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Dior, Cartier and Roberto Cavalli. But it does also have a great array of individual and very trendy boutiques.
St Jean is smaller and has mainly unique boutiques. Each one is a virtual Aladdin’s cave of interesting items and fashionable clothes.
Some of the main hotels also have fabulous boutiques. The two that come immediately to mind are located at the Isle de France and at the Eden Rock.
A fashionable Lunch in St Barts is a must.
There are so many amazing places to visit but here are some of our favourites:
The Cheval Blanc Isle de France is truly wonderful. The food is amazing and the location directly on Flamand’s beach is hard to beat. The hotel’s incredible boutique has a fashion show every day which adds to the atmosphere and glamour.
Another firm favourite of ours is La Plage which is located at the Tom Beach Hotel on St Jean Beach. The food is divine and again they have a daily fashion show. This is where you will be able to buy the legendary Free in St Barts brand of clothing.
If having the best views on the island is important to you then, Restaurant Sante Fe is the place to go. It is located on one of the highest points of St Barts and on a clear day, you will be able to see across to Nevis, St Kitts and Saba. The food is also wonderful.
Lastly lunch at the Sand Bar restaurant located at the Eden Rock hotel is always amazing. You will experience great food and great atmosphere no matter what time of the year you visit the island.
