St. Barths Travel Tips

Surfin' St. Barths

Hit the waves in St. Barths for a whole new experience. We'll tell exactly where to head in order to find the best rip curling waves: Toiny, Lorient, Anse des Cayes and Saint-Jean.

You can easily find equipment to rent and even a local guide to teach you how to surf if you've never tried before.


Windsurfing is another popular option, too. Most of the time, winds blow moderately enough to allow newbie windsurfers to gradually develop their techniques. What are you waiting for? Surf's up in St. Barths!

Chef's Special

What better way to learn about the fabulous food in St. Barths than seeing a chef prepare meals in front of you and your friends. On St. Barths, many chefs will come to your villa and prepare a meal for you, plus treat you to a fun cooking class.


When you have a chef come in for the night, you can often choose from different menus or you can create your own. Having the chef come up with the dishes is a good way to experience new flavors!

Rockin' Night

Baz Bar, located on the water, is hands down the best place to hear live music. This chic sushi restaurant features live music every night except Sunday. You'll love the ultra-cool vibe of the bar, and its laid-back ambiance as you rock out to the music of the night.


Jimmy Buffet often drops in for a surprise show when he’s in town. Plus, the view is pretty good along the water!

If you're visiting St. Barths between mid-December and mid-April, you’ll want to make dinner reservations. The island is known for its wonderful cuisine, so many restaurants are worth trying out.  But, to avoid long waits, reservations are a must.


However, reservations are recommended any time you visit St. Barths. And, if you do forget, you can always enjoy a cocktail while you wait for your table!
