St Barths Holidays: An Overview

The island of St Barthélemy (or St Barths, as it is commonly known) is situated towards the northern end of the chain of islands that make up the Lesser Antilles. The island was named by Columbus after his brother, Bartolomeo, and is considered by many to be the most beautiful island in the Caribbean.

Today, St Barths is a French colony which offers a great combination of pristine white-sand beaches, calm turquoise waters, stylish accommodation and - perhaps unsurprisingly - good restaurants.

Original Travel consultants have stayed on, and sailed round, St Barts on numerous occasions, so can suggest the best places to stay and things to do while there - like absolutely nothing. For the more active souls, activities on the island (aside, of course, from lying on the beach looking gorgeous) range from horse riding in the green hills of the interior to diving and snorkelling on the nearby reefs, all of which we can organise.

A Note on Price

St Barts is reasonably pricey, and an all-out luxury holiday over peak season periods like Christmas could cost up to £10,000 per person, including business class flights.
