Presentation Transcript

slide 1:

When the French Riviera gets cold and rainy during winter many tourists and millionaires decide to travel west to the Caribbean. With most of the area being in the tropics the temperature usually never drops below a pleasant 18°C. While there are many stops available in the Caribbean by far the most well-known is Saint-Barthélemy better known to English speakers as St Barths. Part of the Renaissance Islands archipelago St Barths has been a French colony after being discovered by Columbus on his voyage to India then being settled and used to grow cacao despite frequent attacks by the indigenous peoples of the islands known as Caribs. After a trade deal in the 1780s passed the island to Sweden the island began to prosper as a free port becoming a safe zone for the trade of goods from both legal trading and stolen goods. In the 1870s the island was returned to France which is its main cultural influence. A BRIEF HISTORY OF SAINT-BARTH ÉLEMY

It wasn’t until the 1960s that any attempt to make the area attractive for tourists were made. While Saint-Barthélemy is a beautiful island getting there by plane was virtually impossible until the construction of an airport and island- wide electricity availability was only developed in 1961. But from there St Barths has been a popular destination for holiday-goers honeymooners and the rich where its sundrenched beautiful scenery warm weather and azure- blue peaceful waters are perfect for recreational yachts. While Gustavia is the capital and largest city in Saint- Barthélemy most of the tourist attractions are spread out across the island with famous hotels like Eden Rock Hotel Le Toiny and Cheval Blanc located close to the best beaches and harbours on the island. The island has a large nature reserve which can be visited along with sporting events a vibrant local cuisine and beautiful azure waters home to massive superyachts and small boats. When Winter strikes the Mediterranean St Barths is one of the best places to visit in the Caribbean.
