St. Barth

Saint Barthélemy (oder St. Barth) ist eine kleine Karibische Insel in den Französischen West Indies (FWI) mit einer Fläche von ca. 25 Quadratkilometern und ungefähr 9000 Einwohner. Die Hauptstadt, mit ihrem wunderschönen natürlichen Hafen, ist Gustavia. Vor dem Ende der Napoleonischen Kriege war Gustavia für eine kurze Zeit eine schwedische Kolonie, fiel später aber wieder zurück an Frankreich. Die Sprache, Küche und Kultur sind eindeutig Französisch, d.h. Du wirst hier den typischen französischen Croissant nicht vermissen.

St.Barth ist ein sehr beliebtes Touristenziel; und vor allem in der Winterferienzeit tummeln sich hier die Schönen, Reichen und Berühmten wo sie Weihnachten und das Neujahr feiern.

Ich reise regelmässig nach St.Barth und werde von meinen Entdeckungen und Abenteuer berichten. Vielleicht kann ich Dich mit meinen Blogs für eine zukünftige Reise auf diese wunderschöne Insel in der Karibik inspirieren.

The capital, with its beautiful natural harbor, is Gustavia. Before the end of the Napoleonic wars Gustavia was a Swedish colony for a short time, but later it fell back to France. The language, cuisine and culture are clearly French, i.e. you will not miss the typical French Croissant.

St. Barth is a very popular tourist destination; and especially during the winter holidays, a place where the rich, beautiful and famous are celebrating their Christmas and New Year.

On a regular basis, I am travelling to St.Barth and will be writing about my discoveries and adventures; my Blogs may inspire you for future travels to this beautiful Island in the Sun.

  1. We were in Saint Martin two years ago and regret not taking a ferry over to St. Barths for a day. We’ve heard it’s beautiful. But very expensive. I’m looking forward to hearing more about your travels to St. Barths.

    • Many thanks for your feedback. Yes, the ferry is an option to visit St. Barth, it takes you from Marigot or Oysterpond…another of getting their is by plane. St. Barth is expensive, but there are also places, both Hotels and Restaurants, where the prices are more or less OK. Currently, there is a lot of reconstruction going on…and it’s noisy and lots of traffic! Perhaps in one or two years, it will be better! Thanks for following my Blog, I will continue to „report“ about this beautiful Island 🙂 Cheers and all the Best, Roland
