Famous for its spotless beaches, decadent restaurants and incredible shopping, St Barts is a playground for the rich and famous and is within easy reach of you and your family and friends during the winter season.
St Barts has long been a popular yacht vacation destination, renowned for its glamour, beaches and atmospheric nightlife. Another appeal of the island is that it is a duty free port, packed full of über-chic stores lining beautiful marble-fitted walkways.
The highest concentration of shops is in the capital, Gustavia, followed by the enchanting town of St-Jean on the north island that has several shopping centres.
In Gustavia, visit the harbor-side Quai de la République, the equivalent to New York’s Madison Avenue, for high-end boutiques such as Louis Vuitton, Bulgari and Cartier, to name but a few. It is wise to put aside more than just one afternoon to see what’s what and to work out where to spend your money.
The best way to get to and explore St Barts and all it has to offer is by luxury charter yacht. See which yachts are available to charter in and around St Barts and speak to a yacht charter broker to book a luxury charter vacation here this summer to discover the cuisine and shopping for yourself.
