St Barths:

Princess Juliana International Airport, on the neighboring island of Sint Maarten, is the main gateway for air travel to St. Barths ( From there, several scheduled carriers run air shuttles to St. Barths: WINAIR (590-590-27-61-01; and St. Barth Commuter (590-590-27-54-54; However, reliability can be a serious issue, as is getting your luggage past the weight restrictions.

A new, better option is Tradewind Aviation's once-a-day flight from San Juan, Puerto Rico (800-376-7922; This will save you the trouble of going through Sint Maarten's crowded, occasionally anarchic airport. Tradewinds' flight usually leaves San Juan around 3 p.m., and the return flight from St. Barths takes off around noon.

Whatever the airline chosen, however, tentative fliers should be forewarned that St. Barths has the shortest landing strip in the Caribbean. Be prepared for small planes and a landing that will be either memorable or terrifying.

The M.V. Voyager (590-590-87-10-68) and the Edge (599-544-2640) take between 45 and 75 minutes each way, depending on the port location.
