St. Barts island was originally called “Ouanalao” by the Caribs Tribe, who lived here on the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1493. He renamed the island as St. Barthélemy, in honor of his brother Bartoloméo Columbus. By the middle of the XVII century, the French had colonized the island, but for financial & piracy reasons, the St Barts administration was traded to Sweden by the king Louis XVI in 1794. From this administration by the Sweden kingdom comes the name of the capital of St Barts, Gustavia, as the architectural influence and many of the street names. The island was sold back to France in 1877 and has remained under French administration. That is why the official language in St Barts is French, and the currency is the Euro.
The island of St. Barth is located in the northeast of the Caribbean Sea, 35 km from the island of Saint Maarten and 240 km from Puerto Rico, you can reach St. Barth by air and by sea. The port of Gustavia is witness to the arrival of ships of all sizes, as well as the ferries to cross from Saint Maarten to St Barts proud to have crossed the sea. The Gustaf III / Rémy de Haenen Airport (SBH) has a small airstrip that is an experience in itself. Because of its size, it can only receive small planes of no more than 20 passengers. To get to St Barth by air, the option is to fly to one of Saint Maarten´s two commercial airports (Princess Juliana or L´Espérance Airport) and from there take a flight of no more than 15 minutes to St Barth. Plane transfers are also available from several islands of the caribbean as Puerto Rico and Antigua. You can also take a ferry from Saint Maarten to the port of Gustavia.
