Yacht Itinerary French Caribbean

French Caribbean

An island experience to suit every passion

Seven Caribbean islands fall under French sovereignty, each with its own distinctive personality, style, and flair. Without question, one of the prime hotspots is the legendary island of Saint Barthélemy (St. Barths), a favorite among upscale clientele and Hollywood A-listers, promising everything from serenity and luxury to nightlife and boutique shopping. This volcanic island is home to more than 20 pristine white sand beaches, surrounded by verdant rolling hills and quaint coastal villages, and renowned for its quiet and scenic beauty, chic boutiques, and fabulous French-inspired cuisine.

Just 25 miles northwest of St. Barths is the energetic island of St. Martin, where superyacht marinas abound and adventure awaits. The north side of the island is the French half, and as such, features open air markets, characteristic French bakeries, and charming waterfront cafés. For a more peaceful sojourn, make a stop at Orient Bay, one of the most exceptional beaches in the Caribbean, or explore the 12-square-mile National Nature Reserve. Whatever your desire, this suggested French Caribbean yacht charter itinerary is sure to please.

Gustavia

As St. Barths’ capital and main port, Gustavia offers high-end shopping, world-class dining, and quaint cafés that line the superyacht-filled harbor. But there are also dozens of stunning, shimmery beaches, so make sure you save time to experience the island’s natural beauty. Enjoy fine dining at Eden Rock or Bonito for a delightful culinary experience. On the windward side of the island, anchor on the wide bay at St. Jean, protected by a reef and an ideal place for windsurfing, paddle boarding, or kite surfing.

Enjoy a gourmet picnic prepared by your chef, and then hike to Anse des Flamands, where panoramic ocean views over both sides of the island will take your breath away. Stroll the golden coastline of Flamands Beach before returning to Colombier and the respite of your yacht.
