St Barth Beaches
French Glamour in the Caribbean

St Barth Beaches are exotic, secluded and are ideal for people looking for quiet vacations, elegance and great service.

St Barth or St Barthelemy one of the Lesser Antilles is part of the French Caribbean Islands. Here you have the feeling of France all around you. The food, the boutiques, the perfumes and the people.

Getting there by Air

The easiest way to get to St Barthelemy is by flying to St Maarten’s Princess Juliana, where flights arrive from the Caribbean Islands, North America and Europe on a regular basis.

Getting to St Barth by Ferry

My wife didn’t want to fly on those small planes and especially after learning that the airstrip is small, so we took the Ferry from St Maarten.

Now there is a fast and comfortable Ferry between Philipsburg (Sint Maarten) and Gustavia (Saint Barthelemy). They make several round trips a day.
