I am finding it incredibly difficult to settle back into work mode after having spent a truly perfect week on the idyllic island of St. Barth’s. Should you make the wise decision to embark on the same journey, honeymoon or otherwise, be sure to explore a few of my personal favorite spots. A little prep work never hurt anybody!
I devoted the first 3 days of my trip to researching which beach I would eventually become obsessed with. In the end it was a tie. Colombier was well worth the 20 minute hike and the snorkeling there was to die for. On the other hand, the easily accessible Gouverneurs Beach was a flawless rival. Clothing optional, of course.
For dinner, L’isola was hard to beat. Best Italian on the island!
Romantic drinks and a midnight pizza? Bagatelle offers a candlelit ambiance, DJ, dance floor and an impressive champagne selection.
From our airport greeting to their uber helpful on-call concierge services, Wimco Villa Rentals was fantastic. We stayed in a private villa complete with private pool of course and a beautiful view of Flamands Bay! Check out my complimentary tote.
A noteworthy tip from our Bagatelle bartender Laurent: Grab your snorkeling gear and get to the beach by 8am if you want a peek of the island’s very friendly sea turtles. As long as you don’t approach them from behind, they are incredibly playful and happy to engage with snorkelers and divers.
The after effects of what I dubbed my Honeymoon-test drive have me dreaming about a return visit!
