Daytrip to St.Barths

St.Barths St.Bartelemy is a french caribbean island near St.Maarten
By Catamaran from St.Maarten to St.Barths

From the large neighboring island St. Maarten the Caribbean island St.Barths is easy by ferry, boat or plane (Island Hopper) reachable. St.Barths is only 10 nautical miles from St.Maarten. Ferries depart e.g. in Oyster Pond near Dawn Beach or Marigot. By plane St.Barths is accessible via the airport of Gran Case and the International Princess Juliana SXM Airport. The small planes land just above the road between Gustavia and St. Jean and then fly down the hill to the short runway. A flight to St.Barths is an adventure.

The shellbay in St.Barths has instead of beachsand millions of shells.

From Gustavia it is a short walk near the south side of the island St.Barths to Shellbay. By boat anchoring in the Shellbay is much more idyllic than in the crowded harbor of Gustavia. The name of the capital Gustavia dates from the time when St.Barths was Swedish-owned.

A trip to the north side of the island to St. Jean is also nice. You can also rent a car or take a taxi tour of the island.
