St. Barthélemy (St Barts) is a Caribbean paradise located in the French West Indies. Known for its pristine beaches, crystal clear waters, azure skies, and luxurious resorts, it's no wonder why St Barts is one of the hottest vacation spots in the world.
A-listers and yachters flock to the island year-round, attracted to the captivating scenery and relaxed atmosphere. The mix of cultural influences leads to a unique experience, French cuisine, and style while maintaining the island's Caribbean vibes.
Visitors need to experience as much of St Barts as possible. Fortunately, the island provides several options for getting around, including taxis, rental cars, and mopeds.
Taxi services are easily accessible throughout the island. We found amazing taxi stands in Gustavia, Lorient, and Corossol. All taxis are metered, but you can also negotiate a fixed rate with the driver.
One of our top recommendations is to rent a car or moped. Rentals are available throughout the island and can be booked online in advance. For those who want an adventure, several off-road tracks lead you through some of the most remote areas of St Barts.

French is the official language of St Barts. However, English is widely spoken and understood.
Summer, which is also the rainy season in St Barts, is from May-November. During this season, temperatures can reach up to 90°F (32°C).
December through April are the drier and cooler months of the year. Temperatures during this period range from 65-80°F (18-27°C).
Generally, sunshine is a prominent feature throughout the entire year. We recommend that you pack your sunscreen even in the winter. Due to the winds, humidity isn't a major problem.
The Caribbean waters in the area maintain an average temperature of 81°F (27 °C) throughout the year. This makes the island ideal for water sports such as swimming, snorkeling, and windsurfing.

St Barts Eases COVID-19 Travel Requirements
We love visiting St Barts at any time of the year, but the summer season does get a bit crowded. The Christmas-New Year’s period is quite popular and can be quite expensive for visitors due to the high demand for accommodations.
For those looking for a more relaxed experience, we recommend visiting anytime from March to May. During this time of the year, St Barts sees its fair share of tourists, but it's never overcrowded, and prices are more suitable for budget-minded travelers.
