St Barth

The island

Description of the island

In Saint-Barth, the sun is always shining although it can sometimes give way to sudden showers or storms.

Saint-Barth is the jewel of the French West Indies. Like a jewel lost in the Caribbean, the island of Saint. Barth is as small as it is grandiose. 24 km of paradise, between fine sandy beaches, luxury hotels and restaurants, local charm and the “French touch”, the experience is inevitably unique.

The gentle way of life is just like the climate: warm, tropical and sunny all year round!
Sometimes, a shower, a “squall” as we say here, comes to refresh the atmosphere for a few minutes, then the sun reappears at once. The climate is tropical, hot all year round, with temperatures hovering around 30°C. From December to April, the air is relatively cool and becomes more humid from May to November.

On the island, French and English are spoken fluently. The euro is the official currency but dollars are accepted in almost all hotels, restaurants and shops.

One foot on land and the magic happens. Welcome to St-Barth.


History of Saint-Barth

Discovered by Christopher Columbus at the end of the 15th century, Saint Barth’s original Caribbean name was “Ouanalao”. 

Over the centuries, the island has been successively ceded between Sweden and France. Many plaques still bear inscriptions in Swedish on the streets of Gustavia, the only settlement on the island. 

In 1946, an airplane landed for the first time in Saint-Barth. A few years later, in 1957, David Rockefeller had a villa built. At the same time, the community decided to prohibit the construction of high-rise buildings to avoid mass tourism.

Since the 1960s, the island has become a luxury tourist destination, offering a perfect balance between nature, comfort and tranquility.



How to get there?

There is only one airstrip in Saint Barth and its configuration allows only small planes to land. You will have to make a short stopover on a neighboring island before reaching your paradise.

The information below is mandatory for travel through St.Maarten.

For the French travelers:

Sint Maarten is an island where one half is Dutch and the other half is French. A French identity card is not sufficient to reach the Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM) on the Dutch side, even for a simple transit: a passport with a validity period of more than three months will be required. To reach the regional airport of Grand-Case l’Espérance (SFG) from the mainland, usually after a stopover in Fort-de-France or Pointe-à-Pitre, a French identity card may suffice.
If you are traveling with your children, you should know that minors, regardless of age, must now also have an individual passport. French law stipulates that minors traveling with both parents, or only one of them, do not need to be in possession of an authorization to leave the country. On the other hand, this document is mandatory (since January 15, 2017) if this accompanying condition is not met. In the latter case, the child will need to present a: passport (or identity card, depending on the requirements of the destination country),the authorization to leave the territory form, signed by one of the parents holding parental authority (the authorization to leave the territory form can be accessed at; a photocopy of the identity document of the signing parent.
When a minor travels with one of his or her parents whose name he or she does not bear, it is strongly recommended either to be able to prove filiation (, or to present an authorization to leave the territory (Cerfa form n° 15646*01) duly completed and signed by the other parent with a copy of his or her identity card. This authorization does not exempt minors from fulfilling any other specific formality for the destination.

For European Union citizens and Swiss nationals

Although half Dutch and half French, Sint Maarten is not part of the Schengen area. An identity card from a European Union country is therefore not sufficient to reach the island. A passport with a return or onward ticket is required and allows you to stay for up to 60 days. An immigration card, usually given on the plane, must also be filled in with the address of the place of stay.

For citizens of other countries

For citizens of Canada and the United States, you must have a valid passport (valid for more than 6 months at the time of entry) and a return ticket. A visa is not required if the duration
of the stay is less than or equal to 30 days. New security measures have been implemented in airports: electronic devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc.) must be charged and in working order for all flights to or through the United States. Screening officers must be able to turn them on. As a precaution, have your charger handy. If your device is discharged or defective, it may be confiscated. As this measure may be extended to other airports, we recommend that you charge your electronic devices before your flight, regardless of your destination.

Saint-Barth is an island with a strong relief where the natural environment is very present, especially through strong vegetation despite a very dry environment. In the sea, a national aquatic nature reserve was created in 1996. Contrary to other islands in the West Indies, the original fauna is intact and extinctions have been minimal up to now. The underwater environment is a natural richness of the island, with notably its corals (51 species, and 31 different genera).


Saint Barth is more busy during the high season, when Christmas and New Year’s Eve, Carnival and the Bucket Regatta take place.
