  • FORT ST. LOUIS

    Saint Martin Things to Do

    This small fort is actually the largest historical monument in St.Martin. It also has the best viewing vistas on the whole of the shared island. This includes the absolute best place to view sunsets. It would also be the most likely place to build a fort. It was erected in 1767 on the direct orders of King Louis XVI. This was obviously previous to...

  • Shared taxis

    Saint Martin Transportation

    Like many Caribbean ports, there is a shared tax system that charges a per person fee and decreases with the number of people. We ended up with 6 people in our van which dropped the per person price to $7 to Orient Beach, with just two it's $9 per person and they aren't eager to go until they get more. The prices are fixed and posted at the cruise...

Île Saint-Barthélemy

  • Gustavia Lighthouse

    Île Saint-Barthélemy Off The Beaten Path

    We didn't give this lighthouse the attention that we usually give lighthouses, but we could see it from almost anywhere in town. It is an active lighthouse - a round conical tower painted white with a single red band at the top. The lantern has been removed and is on display at the Musée Municipal de St.-Barthélemy in Gustavia. It is located atop a...

  • St Barts Airport de St Jean

    Île Saint-Barthélemy Transportation

    It is really tiny but loud if you are on the beach directly below it.....most folk come by boat I guess, but some arrive by small airplane from other islands nearby. The government is trying to keep major development off the island, so no large carriers allowed. Only 10 minutes by air from St. Maarten.

  • Anse de Grand Saline--nude beach

    Île Saint-Barthélemy Things to Do

    My girl and I went here to see what naked experiences we could have in St Barts, and found this lovely beach, not many folks, about half naked half clothed. Really a spectacular beach, fine white sand surrounded by trees and cliffs. It's a little bit of a trek getting in, but well worth it. No food or water available so bring what you need with...

  • SNACKS SNACKS SNACKS

    Le Gosier What to Pack

    I wish I had brought more snacks on this trip. When I got to Guadeloupe I had no clue that my body wouldn't agree with most of the food. In fact I really couldn't eat most of it. Ice cream was the only thing that came very easy for me... their ice cream there is fenominal. So bring plenty of snacks because my friend and I both couldn't force...

  • A little local color

    Le Gosier Shopping

    A little vendor shop on the side of the street. What makes it so special is the chance to talk with the people that live in Gosier. Sara is the name of the woman that I got a chance to converse with and her laugh would brighten anyon's day. There's not really any extraordinary shopping in Le Gosier because it's a really small town. However, there...

These areas have been protected since 1999 and now a lot of species are returning back to St. Barts. Water is clear...

  • The Yellow Submarine

    Gustavia Things to Do

    The Yellow Submarine allows to sea the splendor of the undersea world to be viewed without getting wet. Most of the areas around St. Barts are a marine reserve and during the one hour excursion one gets to see a ship wreck which is located directly outside the port of Gustavia and a reef that is just alongside the port entrance. During my tour we...

On the eight desktops there are there you will need to schedule this before, since there is a list of who can use it when. But when you have you’re own laptop you’re completely free to...

  • With your feet in the sand

    Sainte-Anne Nightlife

    This bar is located along the Boulevard Georges Mandel, at 100 metres east from the exit towards the Plage de Sainte-Anne. This is my personal favourite place to go out. Karibik has sand on the floor, some seats to sit on although most people tend to stand here and play billiard.The music normally is a mixture of R&B, reggae and other “urban”...

  • The windmills of Marie-Galante

    Marie-Galante Things to Do

    Marie-Galante is also known as the "Island of 100 Windmills". Only 72 of them have actually survived through the centuries and they can be seen all around the island. Moulin de Bézard, one of the first windmills in the French West Indies, has been rebuilt and brought to its original state. This is the only working mill - it processes sugar cane -...
