Where should you stay?
The British run Isle de France hotel in the Anse des Flamands is a beautiful and friendly place to stay with a gorgeous Molton Brown Spa, cool pool, private beach and just 30 sleek all-white rooms, you might just be sharing the lobby with the likes of Mariah Carey and Puff Daddy.

If you prefer your own space, rent a villa. The perfect way to guaranteeing total privacy, Caribbean style homes on St Barts often come with a sundeck, dipping pool and Jacuzzi, hammock and stunning views over the coastline.

What about eating out?
You’ll be spoilt for choice! Food here is a serious matter and you can get almost anything you heart desires. The French influence is omnipresent and synonymous with gastronomic heaven.

The pan-seared foie gras with apples is highly recommended while the lobster with ricotta raviolis is a real treat. Though islanders, and visitors alike, are nonplussed by famous faces, when Mick Jagger came over for dinner, the room did go very quiet…

For a more casual ambience try Do Brazil, French tennis champ, Yannick Noah’s restaurant where sipping Caipirinhas barefoot is ‘de rigueur’. For late night partying with the in crowd head to Nikki Beach’s bar for its legendary parties or Le Ti St Barts, famous for its long nights dancing on the tables.
