Wanderlust: A Guide to our Favorite French-Speaking Island

A Caribbean island, surrounded by crystal clear waters and packed with French flair, makes St. Barths one of our favorite sunny-weathered vacation spots to frequent. Whether visiting for New Years or Spring Break, you have to drop by some of our beloved haunts. We created a list of our top 5 must-go-to locales that we know you’ll love as much as we do! 

Hotel Le Toiny 

Looking for a relaxing getaway from town? Head over to the newly renovated Hotel Le Toiny for lunch on their private beach. When you arrive in the lobby, a Vintage Land Rover Defender emblazoned with Le Toiny’s logo will drive you through the hills to the hidden locale. After lunch take a dip in the pool and browse the gift shop. When it's time to go home, the Le Toiny Defender will drive you back to the lobby and off you go!

Colombier Beach 

One of 16 beaches on St. Barths, Colombier is certainly the most remote, but finding it is well worth it! You can hike to and fro, but we recommend renting a catamaran for the day, equipped with a catered meal and lots of rosé, to sail out there. Snorkel near the boat to check out the vibrant fish colonies or swim to shore for a walk on the beach. We swear the salt-water has healing powers! 

Bonito 

Quite possibly the tastiest restaurant on the island, Bonito fuses Latin and French cuisine to craft dishes you’ll dream of long after you’ve cleaned your plate. Start with one of their signature cocktails, our personal favorite is the ‘Bubbling Bonito’ made with fresh cucumber, basil leaves, and watermelon topped with your choice of champagne. To eat, pick anything on the menu (seriously, it's all delicious!) and make sure to end the meal with the ‘Dark Chocolate "Coulant"’ our personal favorite dessert.

Nikki Beach 

Located on the beach of Saint Jean, Nikki Beach provides a non-stop party with a rotating set of DJs accompanied by a delectable selection of food to eat and cocktails to sip on. A hotspot for celebs and people watching, you’ll want to wear one of our airy Senlis dresses over your bikini to fit the part. Make sure to call ahead and rent a tanning bed, so you can move straight from dancing on tables to lounging ocean-side, all with a glass of rosé in hand!

Le Ti St-Barth

Nightlife on the island ranges from casual to the theatrical Le Ti. Part cabaret show, part dinner and part dress up (think cheerleader outfits and mullets), this nightclub is anything but basic and we doubt there's anything that compares. Once outfitted in a costume from the vast collection in the dressing room in the back, be prepared to dance the night away and make memories you’ll (maybe) remember for a lifetime.
