It is one of the four territories in the Leeward Islands in the north-eastern Caribbean comprising the French West Indies, along with Saint Martin, Guadeloupe, and Martinique. Saint Barthelemy, or St. Barts, is a volcanic island surrounded by shallow reefs. Its capital and largest city is Gustavia. The territory is a famous tourist destination, especially during winter holiday season.

Where to go

As with other Caribbean islands, Saint Barthelemy is a great place to enjoy beaches and water activities. About 22 public beaches are in the country, 15 of which are suitable for swimming. The beaches are categorised into leeward beaches that feature calm waters protected by the island, and the windward beaches protected by hills and reefs. The windward beaches are known for windsurfing. The beaches at St Jean and Grand-cul-de-sac are equipped with water sports facilities, while the long beach at Lorient is quieter and has shade. Le petit Anse to the north of Anse de Flamands is a beach known for being safe and suitable for children. Anse Toiny Beach, on the other hand, is suitable for experienced surfers. Meanwhile, the popular beaches on the leeward side are the Anse du Gouverneur, Anse du Colombier, Anse de Grand Galet, and Anse de Grande Saline. There is also a marine reserve in St Barts, which houses protected and vulnerable habitats, bays, and islands. It features beautiful coral reefs and other precious marine life. Travelling along a hill road that leads to the Grand-cul-de-sac is also a unique experience, where tourists can see the scenic views of the coast line. The capital Gustavia is where the colonial regime of the Spanish, Swedes, British, and French is apparent through the monuments and landmarks.
