Paradise visit St Barth
A wonderful trip to a wonderful Island – St. Barth
On the Saturday morning of September
07 tropical paradise visited St. Barth, Tal and I went
on a boat trip to a tiny French Island called "St. Barths",
a one hour boat trip from Anguilla.
St. Barth (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
You can see here some more beautiful photos of the Island taken by a professional photographer and a pro-kiter - Harold Quinquis.
The Island is only eight square miles small, housing around 6,500 people.
We spent the night at the beautiful
hotel Auberge De La Petite Anse (soon a special page for
this paradise). The hotel is located on the mountain’s
side, the Turqoise water is spread right under its feet.
The rooms are amazingly beautiful and very comfortable. The
balcony is located on a dreamy view of the ocean and the
mountains are right there to see...
We rented a small Jeep and toured the island. We were fortunate
enough to see the whole Island within 2 days of being there.
And it was a very unique experience...
The Island is literally
located on mountains and it felt like we were at Disney land
on a train, when the roads took you up and down...
There are great beaches and spots for surfing at St. Barth.
Surfing can be practised in quite a number of bays at the
Island, but only a few of them are shaped to produce the
beautiful rolling waves with a crest of foam that the young
copper-skinned, straw-haired surfers prefer: Toiny, Lorient,
Anse des Cayes and Saint-Jean.
You can see here some amazing surf photos taken by Pierre Carreau
There are no casinos on the Island, but the nightlife is
huge and there are very popular places which always packed
with people, such aBar de l'Oubli and Le Select bar.
We enjoyed excellent French restaurants, bars and some shops.
Most of the shops where closed due to the low season of tourism
on the Island.
