Sparkling St. Barths
A sparkling jewel among the already considerable beauty of tropical islands, St. Barthelemy is synonymous with leisure and luxury. Uncrowded by the typical Caribbean tourist, St. Barts caters to the luxury traveler who loves fine dining and fine diving.
Starting from St. Martin island, we flew in a small chartered plane and circled over St. Barts for a moment, enough time to see brilliant white sand beaches circled by a sapphire ocean, before landing at the island’s tiny airport. The short, mountaintop runway will rattle all but the most experienced of world-travelers.
Our Arrow Marine Villa, located on Mount Jean’s private estate, had a spectacular view of the lush Margiot Bay.

After settling in, we went to dinner at one of St Barth’s most popular restaurants
called Le Ti. After a delicious dinner and of course one too many drinks, people dress up in costumes and dance on tables.
Our days were spent walking around the elite shopping areas of Gustavia and visiting the island’s many beaches.
After a superb lunch at Eden Rock, we checked out Nikki Beach, and found that it’s a party unto itself, complete with champagne showers raining down every few minutes thanks to the raucous revelers.
