Luxury Holidays to St. Barth’s

Often described as the most chic of the Caribbean islands, possibly thanks to its sophisticated French influence, Saint-Barthélemy (St Barth’s for short) is also the most exclusive – providing an exquisite tropical respite. As well as rubbing shoulders with the world’s elite, St Barth’s is the place to find clear blue waters, isolated stretches of powder-soft sand and beautiful scenery. On a luxury break with Lightfoot Travel, we can customise a travel itinerary entirely to your needs.

Given the island’s Caribbean locale, it’s no surprise that beaches and sunshine are the highlight, and St Barth’s boasts 22 pristine white-sand beaches perfect for wiling away an afternoon relaxing by the water, while laid back beach bars serve up rum cocktails in the island’s more chilled-out spot of St.Jean.

For time away from the coast, the capital Gustavia features gingerbread cottages, designer shops, and restaurants.

For some good quality people spotting, the yacht-filled harbour is the place to be – in particular during the two weeks over Christmas, when the well-heeled descend on the island to take advantage of the fine weather, luxury shopping, and five-star accommodation and dining options.

For the remainder of the year, a low-key vibe and slower pace of life dominate the island, where visitors can pass the time perusing French fashion in high-end boutiques, taking in the sunsets on a cliff top with a chilled glass of champagne, or dining in one of the many gourmet eateries dotted about the landscape.
