Blending French sophistication with laid-back Caribbean vibrations, St Barths is a veritable patch of paradise in the French West Indies. The concierge team at Eden Rock–St Barths has put together this expert guide to reveal their treasure-trove of ideas for an unforgettable stay on the island, declared Covid-19 free since April.
A dreamlike setting
Dusk is one of the most beautiful times of day on St Barths and one of the best ways to experience it in all its splendour is with an enchanting sunset cruise. Relaxation is paramount as you climb aboard a yacht or catamaran and explore the wild bay of Colombier. You will be served champagne and delicate nibbles prepared by the talented chefs at Eden Rock. Sit back and take in the spectacular views of the setting sun and listen to the gently lapping waves – pure magic.
A Bird’s-Eye View
The island’s exquisite natural landscapes can be viewed from above with an exhilarating helicopter excursion. As unpopulated cliffs give way to thriving coral reefs, your perception of St Barths takes on an entirely new dimension. Feel the rush of adrenaline as you climb high into the azure blue sky and take in the magnificent scenery. A unanimous pleasure for the entire family.
The beaches of St Barths are an endless source of discovery. The Eden Rockers suggest taking a day to venture away from the beauty of St. Jean’s Bay to visit Colombier Beach. This stunning stretch of sand is only accessible by foot or boat and offers the calm quietude of untarnished nature. Surfers will love the scene at Lorient beach, while Grand Cul-de-Sac Beach offers a gorgeous protected lagoon and reef that are ideal for snorkelling. Both Gouverneur and Saline are remote jewels, while the charming Corossol Beach is situated in a bustling fishing village. Don’t forget to request an Eden Rock picnic, prepared by the hotel’s chefs and delivered straight to you to enjoy on the beach of your choice.
Eden Rock – St-Barths’ much-anticipated season will begin on October 22, 2020 and the Eden Rockers cannot wait to welcome you back. Need to be in St Barths now? Book your summer villacation with Eden Rock Villa Rental.
