Charter a private jet Miami to/from St. Barts

Located in the French West Indies, St. Barts is an overseas collectivity of France. Historians believe the island was inhabited as early as 1,000 B.C. by the Ciboney people who originated from Cuba. The island was discovered and named by Christopher Columbus in 1493 as Saint Barthélemy but it was not colonized until 1651 by the French. In 1784, France exchanged the island for trading rights with Sweden when it founded the Swedish West India Company. Sweden sold the island back to France in 1878 after a decline in trade. Today, the island’s streets still bear Swedish names.

Three Unique Experiences in St. Barts

Gustavia

Gustavia is the capital of St. Barts, named in honor of King Gustav III of Sweden who ruled between 1771-1792. The capital’s iconic red-roofed buildings create a stunning contrast against the harbor’s blue waters dotted with white sailboats and luxury yachts. Gustavia is the location on St. Barts to explore designer boutiques, art galleries and restaurants that celebrate the island’s French heritage. Popular cultural festivals on St. Barts include the St. Barts Music Festival, a lively festival that kicks off the New Year with top performers from around the world. In springtime, the St. Barts Film Festival brings the island’s residents and visitors together to discover the richness of Caribbean culture through cinema. Since its founding in 1996, the festival has grown to become one of St. Barts’ most celebrated cultural events.

Natural Pools

On St. Barts, the most adventurous visitors enjoy a few sites where the incoming tidal surf has carved natural aquamarine pools over hundreds, perhaps thousands of years. Access to these natural pools requires some moderate hiking and it is always advisable to check the weather first and swim with shoes on to avoid slipping on the rocks or accidentally stepping on spiny sea urchins that may be present in the pools. You can find these natural pools in Anse de Grand Fond, Petit Cul-de-Sac and Toiny.

Snorkeling and Diving the Saint Barthelemy Nature Reserve

For those who seek to explore the underwater wonders of the ocean, the Saint Barthelemy Nature Reserve is divided into five separate zones around St. Barts to preserve the fragile marine ecosystem. The reserve helps protect coral reefs, seagrass beds and marine life, including green sea turtles.

According to PADI, the water surrounding the island is relatively shallow with a sandy bottom and depths up to 100 ft. (30 meters). The best dive spots in the reserve are marked with white buoys. Wreck divers visit St. Barts to dive The Kaïali. The wreck site can be found in 100 feet (30 meters) of water with two entrances. Advanced divers can also explore large caverns along the island’s walls. In all, there are 22 dive sites to explore on St. Bart’s.
