Known as the "French Riviera" of the Caribbean with all of the glamour that comes along with: beautiful beaches, fine dining, couture shopping and mega yachts. The official language is French, although English is widely spoken on the island. And, the euro is the official currency. While USD is widely accepted, the exchange rate should be considered and you will most likely receive your change in euros.
Getting to St. Barts can as quick as a 10 to 15-minute flight from St. Martin, or you can take a high-speed ferry, or charter a boat. Other gateways to St. Barts via air include St. Thomas in the USVI, Guadeloupe in the FWI and San Juan, Puerto Rico. We suggest renting 4-wheel or AWD vehicles in St. Barts – this will make it easier on you when driving through the hilly and windy island terrain.
