Captivating beautyA treasure trove of soft sands, coral reefs and azure blue waters
Those lucky enough to visit St. Barths find themselves captivated by its breathtaking beauty and charm. The laid-back Caribbean lifestyle blends seamlessly with the island’s chic, modern feel, where relaxed beach days, fine dining and designer shopping is always on the agenda. It’s a place where exclusive yacht clubs sit side by side with wooden cottages, and visitors are left wanting to return again and again.
With 14 beaches to choose from, St. Barths has something for everyone. If you’re looking for a secluded, palm-fringed beach where aquamarine water gently laps the shoreline, then Marigot Beach, Saline Beach, Gouverneur Beach and Flamands Beach are the perfect choices. Colombier Beach, also known as Rockefeller’s Beach, is a popular picnic spot, while Anse des Cayes Beach and Toiny offer the ideal conditions for surfers. Wherever you decide to hang your hammock during the day, Shell Beach is the place to head for a spectacular sunset. Watch the lights dance on the sparkling ocean as you sip a chilled mojito at one of the beachside cafés.
During the day
A stroll around the harbour of Gustavia, the main town of St. Barths, will take you past stylish boutiques, jewellery stores that sparkle with diamonds, and sleek yachts moored in pretty harbours. The waterfront is bustling with cafés, bars and restaurants and is ideal for a spot of people-watching. For a truly relaxing experience, head to one of the island’s excellent spas and wellbeing centres and choose from a wide range of invigorating massages and exquisite treatments.
If you want to learn more about the marine life, an excursion on a submersible will open up a wonderful underwater world of green sea-turtles, barracudas, butterfly fish, parrotfish, angelfish, snappers, blue tangs and stingrays. There’s also the chance to see pelicans nesting in their natural habits at the Marine Park.
At the end of the day
St. Barths’ cuisine is an eclectic range covering everything from French gastronomy and fine dining, to traditional Creole dishes. Creative and inspiring cuisine from some of the world’s finest chefs, lovingly prepared with care and attention, is on offer at many of the upmarket restaurants and luxury hotels in St. Barths. For an authentic taste of the Caribbean, don’t miss the chance to try popular island dishes, such as stuffed crab or fish, christophine (a local dish using squash and cod), and accras (deep-fried fish fritters). After dinner, head to one of the island’s popular night spots and dance the night away, with a range of sleek clubs and casual beach bars to choose from.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
