Things to do whilst on holiday in St Barthelemy

Scuba – PADI certified, guided tours and lessons for beginners. Stay shallow with mask and snorkel or strap on the tank and hit the depths to witness some of the most spectacular marine habitats in the Caribbean.

Sports – Just a few of the other fun-filled land and water activities available on St Barts – tennis, volleyball, deep-sea fishing, water-skiing, surfing, windsurfing and kite-surf.

Submarine excursions – As adventurous as scuba diving, and just as visually stimulating, plumbing the depths in the comfort of a submarine keeps you dry while you enjoy the kaleidoscopic underwater world.

Jet Skiing and Motor Yachts – Rent a motorised marine machine and join the high-octane fun upon the waves.

Sailing and Yacht Club – After taking your vessel on the open seas, or enjoying a chartered trip, quiet anchorages in bays like Colombier offer respite from the vibrant gatherings in other harbours. Also, try catamaran and Hobie-cat trips and look out for regattas.

Shopping and nightlife – If you can tear yourself away from the shore and all its treasures, St Barts also provides sufficient destinations for shopaholics and dancefloor divas alike. As a duty-free port, your spending money goes far in the designer outlets in Gustavia and St Jean. Casa Nikki, Le Feeling and Yacht Club, meanwhile, are the discos du jour to strut your stuff.
