If you are still hesitating about your honeymoon travel destination or simply cannot choose between the refined beaches of European resorts and the laid-back Caribbean atmosphere, St. Barts is the best choice for you.
This little island in the French West Indies looks like being created for relaxation and calmness. In this chic honeymoon destination you’ll have everything you need for a perfect vacation. What is more, the unique blend of European and Caribbean cultures has created the whole exquisite culture of rest: perhaps that’s why so many people travel to St. Barts.
A good thing to remember is that this island is so tiny and so popular that you always have to book as early as possible. It is as easy as pie with such travel search engines as Trip Mama. But don’t get confused when you find no airlines to St. Barts (it is also called St. Barth’s, by the way). The nearest airport is in St. Martin. When you arrive there you will find numerous ferries and flights to bring you to the place of your honeymoon vacation.
As far as you have understood, the leading activity here is relaxing on a beach. There are 14 public beaches in this honeymoon destination, each one being unique in its own way. Noteworthy, such number of beaches is quite big for an island with an area of 8 square miles. As a result, you can expect some privacy on the beaches over here. Undoubtedly, watersports, like snorkeling, swimming and (especially!) windsurfing are very popular here, as everywhere else in the Caribbean.
Another great activity is relaxing (or continuing to relax) in the capital city of Gustavia. It offers great possibilities for shopping, including boutiques of different world-known brands (e.g., Chanel or Hermes). In addition, your shopping here will be duty-free, so be careful not to buy more than you can carry!
Finally, while traveling to St. Barts make sure you have enough euros, a French phrasebook (of course, English is widely spoken here, but it is always better to be on the safe side), and your tickets to travel there from December to June (it’s the time of best weather in St. Barts).
