Office du Tourisme
A small tropical island with a name often mentioned in magazines, you think you know it like you think you know everything about the lives of famous people.
And it is true that many of them have chosen Saint-Barthélemy as their favourite holiday destination, seduced by its authenticity, its preserved flora and fauna, its gentle way of life and, it should be stressed, the natural discretion of its inhabitants and its regular visitors.
Saint-Barthélemy also benefits from a specific quality: rarity.
On twenty-five square kilometres, not enough to welcome millions of tourists.
At the height of the "season", the island welcomes as many visitors as it has natives, no more, no less.
There is no risk of crowding, either on the quays of Gustavia where the most beautiful boats in the world dock, or on the island's small twenty beaches, some of which are only accessible on foot or by sea.
The largest of its 30 hotels has a maximum of eighty rooms, all of which are exceptional.
The smallest, a haven of peace and elegance under the palm trees, has only eight
Much less than most of our most loyal guests' villas, or some of our bay regulars' yachts. Yes, there are still well-kept secrets.
Let us show you some of the people on our island, or come and discover them for yourself, in complete friendship.
