Get Ready for the Quick Descent. There’s no better place to begin an adventure and exploration of St. Bart than the famously short runway which lies just at the edge of St. Jeans Beach. For those lying on the beach, you can almost reach up and touch the low flying planes as they head into the island. It makes an amazing impression. From here, you can head into Gustavia and begin by exploring this colonial town which was founded several hundred years ago. Oh and you’ll have this exciting take-off to look forward to if you plan on leaving from here too!
Discover a Different Kind of Cul-de-Sac. When most of us see the words “Cul-de-sac,” a very specific picture comes to mind of a suburban, less than interesting neighborhood. The Grand Cul-de-Sac Beach, however, will completely change your perception of the word! This world-famous bay is one of the best places on earth for windsurfing. But that’s not all, just outside of this incredible beach and cove is some of the best fishing waters in the Caribbean. Best of all, you can enjoy the famous year-round warm weather so you can get rid of those winter blue in no time at all!
Charter a Course for an Island Adventure. St. Bart is one of the best places to charter a boat and set yourself free to either explore the great island with its many fantastic beaches, fishing villages and other destinations. It’s also nearby some of the other most famous Caribbean islands. Just north of it is Anguilla and to the south lies St. Kitts and Antigua making St. Bart an incredible place for you to base yourself for a full immersion of the region. Whether you are just hopping down for a quick weekend trip or looking to have a grand adventure through the Caribbean, St. Barthelemy is an amazing place for a truly one of a kind getaway.
