St. Barths Info


Recommended Posts

Yes, you can rent a car near the area where the tenders arrive in Gustavia. Two years ago we rented a Jeep with Automatic shift at the Budget Office. They take you to the airport to pick up the car. Then you drop it off at the airport and they bring you back to the docks. It's a great island to explore. Shell beach is the closest to town.


We had lunch at Nikki Beach, where the restaurant is right on the beach. Fun to people watch.


But there are lots of other great places to eat and shop.

We were in St. Barths in October 2007. There was a tourist info office about a block from the tender dock. They had plenty of info and brochures.


We swam at Shell Beach, and ate at the restaurant Do Brasil, also on the beach. We saw the old Wall House municipal museum. It was a nice little historical museum, and 100% in French. There were also some nice churches, and many yachts in the picturesque harbor. It was a sleepy port in October, when many of the locals were on vacation. Enjoy!

Thanks for the info. We're planning to rent a car. We stayed on Flamands beach years ago and we want to go back to see the changes. Also we want to check out a few other beaches and Corrosol that we haven't seen. Should we reserve a car ahead of time or just walk off the ship?

We just walked in without a reservation and had no problem. We will be back there on Jan 13 and 14 on a Sea Dream cruise and plan to do the same thing again. When we return I'll let you know if we had any problems! I guess it wouldn't hurt to make a reservation though, particularly if you want a specific kind of car.
