St. Barts, Exclusive Tropical Playground

Apr 26, 2008
The first frost of winter often brings about dreams of Caribbean vacations, and the desire to get away to a sun drenched desert isle can start to play on the mind. There are a large number of Caribbean island's, many of which have a strong British, Dutch or French flavor, left over from their colonial past.

Many people have their own personal favorite Caribbean getaway retreat, many choose there island because of the slick Madison Ave advertising campaigns, that promote them as the ultimate Caribbean getaway destinations.

Perhaps because of its very strong French influence the tiny Caribbean nation of St Barts has avoided such brash invitations to visit this tropical paradise. St Barts is the kind of place that has grown steadily in popularity almost entirely due to positive word of mouth from past visitors.

The islanders have avoided mass tourism by avoiding mass advertising; they are far more interested in quality when it comes to tourists, rather than quantity. Many return home from the island singing enthusiastic praises about this incredible vacation location. Then these are the same people who complain when other visitors want to enjoy their hidden, little piece of paradise.

St. Barts is sometimes referred to as the Monte Carlo or St. Tropez in the Caribbean, this is possibly an insult to this stunningly picturesque eight square mile slice of another world. The truth is that St. Barts probably has far more to offer than its Mediterranean sisters.

Unlike these bustling and overdeveloped French cities, growth on St. Barts has been strictly controlled in an eco-friendly manor, for many years. Even before anyone had every heard the phrase. Construction has been strictly limited, with a distinct lack of unattractive condo complexes, and mega hotels.

All of the accommodations to be found on the island including villas defiantly fall under the bracket of luxury class. With no prefabricated build em cheap- sell em fast ugly high rise construction, permitted anywhere on the island.

Even the normal life blood of most Caribbean islands, the cruise ship, is allowed only limited access, with numbers very strictly controlled to avoid the day trip feel that changes the face of tourism on many of the West Indian islands.

St. Barts has chosen instead to offer the highest quality vacation to a smaller number of lucky visitors. These privileged few can partake of the 20 stunning beaches that circle the island, separating the land from the crystal clear, azure blue tropical warm seas.

Many people visit the island just to experience its incredible scuba diving opportunities along the Coral reefs located just off shore. Others want to laze the day away on the snow white beach, sipping on a fruit cocktail. Many come for the huge variety of designer goods available at bargain prices on this duty free island.

What ever your reasons for wanting to visit this undiscovered paradise island, it is sure not to disappoint even the most jaded traveler. St. Barts has so much to offer any visitor that demands quality, and the best that money can buy, in an exotic tropical playground.
