This arid, volcanic rock of just eight square miles is home to an intriguing mix of iguanas, night-blooming cacti and fabulous beaches, as well as luxury yachts, designer boutiques and even a smattering of celebrities! A typical itinerary in and around St Barts will see you exploring a number of ports in addition to anchoring in private coves. The island boasts 20 beaches – each spectacular in their own way. Grand Saline, on the south side of the island, and Colombier beach to the west are both pristine and undeveloped. Flammands and Grand-Cul-de-Sac beaches are popular for their hotels and amenities, and Shell Beach is a hit with families for its tide pools and gentle waves.
