Glitzy and glamorous with white sandy beaches and a plethora of celebrity hotspots, Saint Barthélemy – better known as St Barts – is one of the top Caribbean superyacht destinations. 

Explore picture-perfect beaches, luxury beach clubs, boutiques, gastronomic delights and extraordinary scenery at every turn. 

Here are some of the absolute best attractions in St Barts.

Visit the Island’s Red-Roofed Capital of Gustavia

Home to the best shopping in St. Barts – and arguably the best in the Caribbean – Gustavia flaunts beautiful gingerbread-like buildings with red roofs that create a gorgeous contrast to the green and blue natural surroundings.

Like St Barts as a whole, the capital is diminutive but beautiful. Spend the day shopping at its many luxury boutiques, impressive art galleries, and duty-free shops. 

As for places to eat in Gustavia, Bonito St. Barth is at the top of the list. Decorated like a chic beach house with three different bars, Bonito overlooks the Gustavia Port from a lush hillside, while its high-class chefs prepare upscale French-influenced gastronomic wonders.

Explore Grande Saline Beach, One Of The Top Beaches in the Caribbean

What makes this beach so special is how secluded it is, nestled on the southern portion of the island. With its pristine white sand and gorgeous teal-blue waters, Grande Saline Beach is perfectly tucked away between rocky hills, creating a marvellous refuge for sunbathers – some of whom may be in the nude!

Le Tamarin is one of the best restaurants at Grande Saline Beach. Immersed in a tropical garden, this sumptuous restaurant has an outstanding wine cellar and to-die-for mountain views. Its food is a first-rate fusion of French and local Caribbean cuisine, and it’s a restaurant that we highly recommend to our clients as part of an amazing St Barts superyacht experience. 

Find Luxury In The Village Of St Jean

One of the most idyllic villages in St Barts, St. Jean is home to astonishing natural beauty, such as its tropical hillsides and pristine beaches. 

But this isn’t just one of the best attractions in St Barts for relaxation —there’s also amazing dining and shopping.

A stunning spot for breakfast or lunch in St Jean, Sand Bar is ideally positioned right on the beach overlooking the gorgeous Baie de St Jean. Drink in the stunning views and fully relax with the gentle sounds of the waves in your ears as you enjoy your coffee and indulge in the delicious fresh breakfast buffet. Sand Bar’s lunch menu offers exotic salads, wonderfully fresh local seafood, and delicious interpretations of old classics, paired with specially chosen wine from around the world.

Live The High Life At St Jean Beach

Great for swimming, snorkelling, sunbathing and sailing, St Jean Beach is one of the most celebrated beaches in St Barts. 

Combine all that with ritzy cocktail bars, fabulous eateries and good vibes, it’s no wonder yachties flock here.

People ‘in the know’ tend to gather at places like Lil’Rock Beach Bar & Restaurant for its beachfront cabanas, cuisine, and excellent cocktails like fresh-mint mojitos and other tropical cocktails. Or the beautifully designed ‘bohemian beach club’ Gyp Sea Beach for cocktails, languid idleness, BBQs and live music.

Visit During One Of St Barts’ Unique Festivals

If you’re visiting St. Barts on a superyacht charter with us, you’ll get VIP access to some of the island’s best events and festivals. Practically every month of the year, there’s something glamorous and exciting happening on this charming little island.

The first weekend of May brings the West Indies Regatta, celebrating the old days of trading by sail between the islands. Soak up the tropical sun, enjoy live music, a pop-up market, and loads of sailing. Then, just a few days later, the lively St Barts Film Festival showcases Caribbean culture and creative flair.

One of the island’s top events of the year, however, is the Caribbean Rum Awards, also known as the Saint Barth Rum Festival. A team of expert judges from the Caribbean fly in or set sail to St Barts to judge a coveted selection of the Caribbean’s best rum. Hosted in Gustavia, you’ll get to enjoy local rum markets, live music events, gala events, and special tastings.
