Many people have heard of it, but aren't sure exactly where it is. They know it's an island, someplace in the Antilles archipelago. Do they imagine it to be hip and sophisticated, or more authentic, discreet, and laidback?
This tiny rock, smaller and less populated than many villages in the French countryside, has few resources other than its charm, its erpetual sunshine, the underwater wealth of its Marine Park, and its protected landscapes.
And of course, the island is an excellent tourist destination:
one of the most varied and upscale, with villas, hotels, spas, some of the best restaurants in the Caribbean, a wide choice of leisure activities and nautical sports, prestigious sailing regattas, a full calendar of cultural events, and the irresistible allure of great hopping
In April and May, Saint Barth hosts three major cultural events.
First up is a tribute to the printed word with the 8th edition of the Saint Barth Book Festival from April 15-23, followed by the 18th annual St Barth Film Festival with its accent on Caribbean cinema, April 25-30.
Last but not least is the St Barth Theatre Festival, which invites you to reserve your tickets for productions full of humor and emotion, May 10-18, 2013.
Good reads, good films, and good live theatre: an interesting spring schedule full of discoveries and rendez vous in the worlds of arts and culture.
