Gustavia, capital of Saint Barthelemy

Located on St. Barts, Gustavia serves as the capital of the island and provides visitors with access to the numerous beaches and water opportunities that are available. First claimed by France in 1648, the island was given to Sweden in 1784, then sold back to France 4 years later. Gustavia was founded in that 4-year period of Swedish control and maintains this unique component of the island’s history. Hiking is a popular activity around Gustavia thanks to challenging trails and unique...

Saint Barthelemy, or St. Barts for short, lies to the southeast of St. Martin and is north of St. Kitts.

For many years, this collectivity of France was part of the commune of Guadaloupe, until in 2003, when the island voted to become its own separate division. Encircled by shallow reefs, a visit means enjoying warm weather, beautiful beaches, and plenty of walking opportunities.

With more than 300 days of sunshine each year, the 14 beaches of Saint Barthelemy are the perfect holiday destination. Each is filled with clean white sands and are open to the public without an entry fee. Even during the winter months, the beaches have enough space to accommodate everyone.

Water sports are a common way to pass the time during a stay on the island. There are several good diving and snorkeling sites to explore. Submarine trips are possible as well, which is the perfect solution to see shipwrecks and marine life while staying dry. Surfing, including kitesurfing and windsurfing, is always popular.

If you want to enjoy a full day on the water, consider a deep-sea charter so you can do some fishing. Tuna, marlin, and others are all possible in Saint Barthelemy. If you don’t want to fish, try a half-day or full-day catamaran or sailing trip that includes a sunset cruise.

There is plenty of retail therapy to enjoy as well. In Saint Barthelemy, you will find fine dining, finer beaches, and an exquisite atmosphere. Make your way here and you may be tempted to stay full-time.
