Plan Your St. Barthélemy Vacation

The sophisticated French island of St. Barthelemy (aka St. Barts) packs a lot into a delightfully small island package. The cuisine ranks among the Caribbean’s best, and almost everything is stylish—from the chic boutiques in the capital, Gustavia, to the private red-roofed villas that dot the hillsides. You can spend the morning on a picturesque beach, try on the latest French fashions in the afternoon, watch the sunset over the megayachts in the handsome harbor, then choose from dozens of excellent restaurants for an elegant evening meal. These perks make St. Barts one of the region’s most expensive islands; consider it a splurge.
