St. Barts

iStock International
St. Barts — St. Barthélemy, affectionately known as St. Barts (or Barths – both are correct) with its exquisite coves, gingerbread-trimmed Creole cazes, and stone-wall-trimmed emerald hillsides, is counted among the northernmost arc of the Caribbean's Leeward Islands. The rich and famous flock here for the tropical climate and the laid-back atmosphere. Despite the island’s stratospheric prices, gourmet eateries, and duty-free haute-couture boutiques, sarongs and denim cut-offs (and often little else on the beaches and yachts) are common. While the island is French by custom, most locals speak excellent English and the U.S. dollar is accepted everywhere.

Why Go

For unwinding, French-style, on the most luxurious island in the Caribbean.
