The French Island of St. Barts (also known as St. Barthelemy or St. Barth's) is one of the more exclusive islands of the Caribbean, a popular relaxing vacation spot of many movie celebrities and rock stars. The landscape is characterized by green rolling hills (highest top: 938 ft, Morne du Vitet), and 22 fabulous beaches, some only accessible by foot.
The island is only eight square miles small, housing around 6,500 people.
The natives ancestors are mostly from Brittany and Normandy. There are no casinos on the island, nightlife is mostly limited to some hangouts in Gustavia (e.g. Bar de l'Oubli and Le Select). Excellent restaurants are plentiful, mostly French, Creole and Italian. Please, do remember that St.Barts is not cheap! Shopping is limited to the capital of Gustavia, since the island has a free port status, you can often find good deals on luxury goods, perfumes and fine wines.
