The Chicest Cay of the Caribbean

Following the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, Saint Barthélemy, better known as St. Barth's, has been praised for getting cleaned up faster than any other island impacted by this fall’s storms. Despite being the go-to retreat for celebrities and socialites, the French island maintains an air of pretention-free exclusivity. This is an island for beach lovers. St. Barth's boasts 14 distinct stretches of sand, from barebones Saline beach to see-and-be-seen St. Jean. This stylish island has its own dress code, a mish mash of Cali cool, French couture and Bohemian chic. Update your wardrobe in the port town of Gustavia at boutiques including Poupette, Calypso St. Barth, Lolita Jaca and men’s store Blue Coast. When it comes to dining, the island has no shortage of excellent restaurants. Locals head to Maya’s To-Go for picnic-ready lunches. At night, splurge on a romantic meal at star chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s On the Rocks at cliff-perched Eden Rock hotel, re-opening summer 2018.
