Diving in St. Barth

St Barth IsleSt Barth, in the French West Indies, is a volcanic island, with serpentine roads banked with bougainvillea and hibiscus that wind through hillsides dotted with red-roofed villas and hotels and trail down to the beaches and hidden coves. The Climate is tropical, which translates to year round temperature of 25° to 35° Celsius

Often compared to a mini-St.Tropez , it is a duty-free port and a Mecca for shoppers with all the high-end designers present and accounted for and loads of trendy boutiques. Since the advent of the first jet setters, St. Barth has been a favorite vacation spot of the rich and famous which is part of the island’s mystique .They frequent the chic bistros and shops and celebrity spotting is part of the fun. Dining is a major component of a St. Barth vacation. The finest provisions are flown in daily from Paris and whether you choose one of the elegant hotel dining rooms, a feet-in-the-sand seaside café, or to dine-in at your villa, perhaps utilizing the services of one of the island’s private chefs, you are sure to have a memorable experience. There are a few discos, but all-in-all St. Barth’s nightlife is relatively low-key, which suits everyone fine as most people come for the island’s natural beauty, its uniquely Gallic culture and that oft-mentioned ambiance of casual sophistication. Throughout the year, there are a number of fun local festivals. St. Barth is not just for rock and Hollywood stars, but honeymooners and “like-minded” couples. It’s romantic as all get-out. Groups of friends and gatherings of multi-generational families enjoying the island with all it has to offer and creating memories. Many tourists visit a different beach each day or are hike enthusiasts, some others are attracted by the blue water and plan to take their first dive or to continue their diving education here in St. Barths, which is an ideal location for diving. The island is situated on a coral plate and the maximum depth available is approximately 90 feet. The dive spots are no more than 5 to 20 minutes from the harbor of Gustavia. There are reefs, caves, canyons, 4 wrecks and an exceptional variety of sealife flourishes in this part of Caribbean. With the help of St Barth Properties and Plongee Caraibes we will help you to find the perfect villa (or hotel if you prefer) and plan the best scuba diving excursions for a romantic and adventurous holiday!
