Once you arrive at your destination, most of your travelling will be done by water, since St. Bart’s is one of the premier sailing, yachting and fishing destinations in the world. Speaking of yachts, to see the island in all of its glory, do as the celebrities do and have your personal Concierge at Rental Escapes set up a private yacht rental or catamaran for the day for you to enjoy snorkelling, diving, fishing and swimming in the surrounding crystal blue waters.
St. Barts embodies a certain charisma and reputation for being the most exclusive and extravagant island in the Caribbean. Did you know that you cannot catch a direct flight to the island? Pretty much the only way to get to St. Barts is to fly into Saint Martin or Puerto Rico and then take a small plane or boat over to St. Barts which is one of the many reasons why this destination is considered to be so exclusive.
In addition, no cruise ships are allowed to dock there which means there is no cattle from the cruise lines coming and filling up the island with bouts of tourists taking over.
St. Bart’s nightlife is not one to sleep on as the island is known to be a host to many incredible shows and places to dance the night away.
When the sun sets in St. Barts, the island comes to life at one of the most famous spots called Nikki Beach, where many superstars go to let loose. This hot spot can be described as the ultimate luxury beach club and combines up-beat music, incredible food and high end fashion all while overlooking the beach.
For a more laid-back party vibe we recommend checking out Le Ti, a gourmet restaurant that starts off with an entertaining burlesque show that then turns into a full on party vibe after dinner.
High End Dining Experiences

Many of the chefs in St. Barts are experts in classic French cuisine, but there are also several restaurants on the island that offer traditional Creole dishes such as stuffed crab, fish, blood sausage, “christophine” (a local squash prepared with codfish), or the very popular “accras,” (deep-fried codfish fritters).
Exquisite restaurants are dotted all around the island offering some of the most incredible gourmet experiences that you can imagine. Some notable favorites to check out would be Le Tamarin, Shellona and Bonito.
