Surrounded by endless miles of sparkling blue waters and colorful underwater worlds, St. Barts is the ideal destination for nature lovers – the friendly sea turtles swimming around you, the soft sands inhabited by funny-looking crabs, and the occasional iguana just chilling by the shore are just some of the many surprises waiting for you in this sunny and private Caribbean enclave.
Whether you choose to walk or dive deep into the ocean, our beautiful island has got you covered. For those aching to put on their sports shoes and get going on foot, we personally recommend Morne Lurin, with its breathtaking panoramic views and many bike trails.
However, if you prefer to be by the water and spend your days swimming around, there are many activities available as well, such as joining a St. Barts scuba diving adventure, visiting the iconic natural pols of the island, and much more.
With vibrant flora and colorful fauna, the many wonders hidden beneath the sparkling blue waters of the island are small treasures waiting to be discovered. Overall, there are more than 20 scuba diving tours in St. Barts, and they visit all kinds of cool places, such as lively coral reefs, impressive canyons, and even shipwrecks; go figure! Additionally, thanks to the cozy, warm weather, these activities are open all year round.
The St. Barts Marine Reserve is one of the most popular diving destinations since, thanks to the many efforts in preservation, the marine flora and fauna inside is the most diverse group in the Caribbean, ranging from barracudas, sea turtles, stingrays, and much exotic fish, such as reef sharks, lobster, surgeonfish, damselfish, and triggerfish, among many others.
The water level is somewhat shallow, thus allowing for a good amount of sunlight to pass through and turn it all into an unforgettable natural spectacle. This is an ideal spot for those who love to spend calm, lazy days just marveling at the landscape.
Of course, for those who love something a little bit more challenging and prefer a St. Barts scuba diving adventure that is a tad more adrenaline-inducing, there’s Kayali, a trawler that sank back in 1994.
Besides friendly sharks and some fish, you will be able to peek inside through the window, and who knows? Maybe even discover an interesting trinket or thingamabob floating around. This site is only recommended for skilled and certified divers, though, but there are still other wreck sites available to explore near Gustavia, the capital city of the island.
At Le Barth Villa Rental, we have beautiful properties available all over the island. Still, if you are planning on getting to the beach and jumping straight into the adventure, we have a few special villas available in Gustavia for you to easily reach the island’s tour hotspot and find one to your liking.
Les Jardins de Gustavia, for example, is a chic 2-bedroom apartment with panoramic views of the city. Its delicate white interiors and pristine design create a relaxing atmosphere, ideal for a deep and restful sleep after a day well spent.
