A small piece of heaven, an uncontaminated corner of Earth, a Caribbean pearl in the French Antilles. It’s Saint-Barthélemy, St Barths for all. Discovered in 1493 by Cristoforo Colombo, the island bears the name of his brother Bartolomeo. Crystalline sea, gilded beaches, nighttime fun, luxurious houses, and wild forests have made St Barths the island preferred by the American jet set since the 60s when it became the go-to destination of multimillionaire David Rockefeller.
Although the island measures only 25 square kilometres, it’s rich in treasures and surprises, and it’s the perfect place for suntan lovers. St Barths has a tropical climate with temperatures that wander between the 22°C and the 30 °C. The warm weather is not torrid but moderate, thanks to the trade winds.
