St. Barts is one of the Caribbean’s most varied and upscale islands that features a collection of world class villas, hotels, spas, fine dining, and a wide choice of leisure activities including nautical sports and full calendar of cultural events.
Encompassing just 8 square miles, the island rolls out a green carpet in terms of its biodiversity with more than 400 species of indigenous plants and trees, 60% of its surface considered natural zones, and almost 3,000 acres of marine park. The island’s geological distinctiveness creates its natural profile and its varied vegetation favors a diversity in animal species.
St. Barts is launching new energy policies and pilot projects to transition toward a global and innovative vision for the island. There are about 20 islets that the Collectivity plans to classify as a terrestrial nature preserve and extensive coral barrier restorations planned to ensure the island’s abundance of species continue to thrive and flourish for generations to come. More contemplative, more sustainable, intimate.
There are many wonderful outdoor adventures to enjoy on the island as well, including:
Boating + Ocean Activities
St. Barts has a long history of boating and today the island is filled with vessels of all shapes and sizes ready to show visitors everything the island and its surrounding areas have to offer. Private yacht charters, jet-ski rentals and canoe excursions, to name a few, await.
Scuba Diving + Snorkeling
Venture beneath the turquoise waters of the warm Caribbean Sea and discover an entire world right beneath the waves ready for exploration. The island is home to countless coral reefs and sub-marine ecosystems, with scuba and snorkeling tour operators available to guide and assist visitors on their undersea excursions. For an even more adventurous trip, try a SEABOB electric underwater scooter for diving with even more ease and agility.
World-famous for its pristine beaches and turquoise waters, St. Barts offers the ultimate Caribbean beach destination, with scores of beaches, coves, and inlets ready to be explored. Saline Beach, located on the island’s southern coast, is a popular and private beach, as well as Colombier Beach, only accessible by hiking and Shell Beach, a natural wonder where the beach is actually made of millions of tiny sea shells.
