A First-Timers Guide to St. Barth

Patrick and I took a well-deserved mid-winter vacation to one of the Caribbean’s most beautiful islands – St. Barth, located in the French West Indies. On this island you will not find big resorts, casinos, high-rise hotels, golf courses, mega-cruise ships, and loud partying, for that you can turn to St. Barth’s neighboring island St. Maarten. The island is an intimate and romantic escape with very little to do except experience the island’s natural wonders and although the island can only be reached by commuter jet or ferry, I promise the extra effort spent in getting here is well worth it.
