Top 10 Things to do in St Barts
1. Enjoy the Island from the Water
Being on a paradise island in the middle of the Caribbean Sea does make you want to get out on the water. One of the best ways to explore St Barts is by taking a catamaran or luxury yacht and sail around the island. Many visitors love to enjoy a full or half day trip, which involves relaxing on board while the staff prepare cocktails, rum punches and of course, delicious canapés. Most trips include a stop off to enjoy some snorkelling or a picnic. Another great option is to take a sunset sail and enjoy champagne on board.
2. Rent a Seabob
A Seabob is a new water sport that is essentially an electric under-water scooter. It is quiet, buoyant and ‘green’, easy to handle and goes up to a speed of 16km/8miles per hour max. A Seabob is a cool and fun way to enjoy some water activities in St Barts. Teenagers especially love to do this. At reduced speed, you can explore the underwater world in all its beauty. It is an activity that you can do on your own, with family or friends, leaving from your favourite beach, at a dive site or as a guided tour with a professional instructor. It is suitable for kids from the age of 8 upwards.

You will find spectacular views of a small beach where the water churns and crashes against the shore. The hike is known locally as the Washing Machine.You won’t be able to swim here, but the hike continues to another famous spot called the Piscines Naturally. These natural pools are the perfect place to cool off before the hot hike back to Grand Fond.
