You may know St. Barts as a jet setter’s paradise that attracts many of the world’s most famous, but it is also a truly romantic destination. After all, it is home to a large number of private and luxurious villas sized ideally for two. It has many amazing beaches, stunning scenery, amazing restaurants and a long list of activities that can make it the perfect choice for a honeymoon or romantic retreat.
Let’s consider some of the most romantic activities and itineraries available to visitors eager to savor the best the island has to offer.
Shell Beach at Sunset
What could be more romantic than booking a table with an unimpeded sunset view? Booking that table along a beach where you and your beloved can spend some time gathering a few shells to take home as souvenirs! Of course, the romance factor increases measurably when you realize that Shell Beach on St. Barts is also known as one of the loveliest in the entire Caribbean and that it is oriented precisely for stunning sunsets.
The ideal spot to book that table is the beachfront Do Brazil with its famous tropical cocktails and casual atmosphere ideal for a meal and drinks and romantic stroll on the sands.
A Day at Colombier
Maybe your vision of romance involves a secluded beach, palms swaying in the breeze, flawless turquoise waters and a hamper full of delicious foods and drinks? If so, this too is an option when you make a visit to the more remote Colombier Beach. Set in the central region of the island, and requiring an easy 25-minute hike, it is often abandoned during the week and perfect for the most romantic experience of your stay.
Dining in Style
Perhaps the two of you prefer your views a bit removed from the actual beachfront? Maybe you also enjoy premium service and world-class cuisine? If so, the stunning views from Le Toiny, along with the amazing gourmet menu options may be exactly what you desire. Noted for offering one of the most amazing views on the island, each table is a “good” table, and the four-star cuisine can make a perfect lunch or dinner for the romantic couple.
Of course, many couples come to St. Barts because of its amazing range of romantic villas ideally sized for two. These are often stocked with every possible comfort and luxury, including private pools, gardens, terraces, hot tubs, entertainment systems and more. However, many also make concierge services available, and this could prove the perfect opportunity for romance.
After all, you might be able to book a chef-prepared meal right in your villa. You may be able to arrange for spa treatments provided right on the premises. There can even be options for everything from cooking classes in your villa to a private charter boat departing from the dock nearby.
Put on your thinking cap and speak with your villa concierge to find out what sort of custom services and luxury amenities are available.
Hit the Waters
Naturally, a chartered boat tour is probably the most romantic way to see the island. Having a skilled and knowledgeable guide to take you from one romantic vista to another, regaling you with stories about the island or simply letting you marvel at the scenery is a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable experience.
There are many ways you might enjoy this sort of experience. Perhaps you would like to pair a boat trip with some diving or snorkeling? That’s possible. Maybe you want to visit a beach reachable only by water? That is an option. Maybe a gourmet meal at sea and a sunset toast Is your dream. Really, almost any sort of private sailing option is yours to enjoy.
There is much to see and do in St. Barts if you are of the romantic mindset, and these are just a few of the opportunities available.
