Why not pack up and head for the spectacular Caribbean this Christmas? Baroque Travel has found out all about the fabulous Christmas celebrations on offer in the famous island of St Barths
The Christmas season is the ideal time to take a break and get away from it all in the Caribbean. And the jet set island of St Barths has lots to offer its visitors this Christmas, as well as being an idyllic location with blue skies and azure sea. In Gustavia, St Barths hosts a Christmas Village which is set up on the quai (harbor), featuring a variety of local artisans selling their handicrafts, food stands that offer a delectable taste of local St Barths cuisine and even a special area where kids can come and meet Santa Claus (affectionately known on the island as ‘Pere Noel’).
St Barths, along with all of the Caribbean islands, is a great fan of Christmas. This Christmas festival is the third consecutive one on the island, and it promises to be even more exciting than ever, with more stands and more fun activities. During the Festive Season, the harbor is full of yachts and the island’s capital sparkles with Christmas lights at night.
Throughout the month of December (from the 1st right through to the 28th), the island hosts the ‘Best Christmas Window’ Competition. Local shops and businesses take part and compete to reveal their creative window decorating talents and their Christmas spirit.
|Then, from 12 December until 21 December, visitors to Gustavia village can visit the festive area on the quai , enjoy a taste of traditional Christmas fare, pick up some beautiful arts and crafts made by the locals and join in the festive spirit. Children can enjoy a special Children’s Parade and a costume contest as well as visit with Santa to tell him what they’d like to receive on Christmas Day.
If you would like to book a stay in St Barths this Festive Season, and enjoy a spot of sun while you celebrate, let Baroque Travel arrange everything for you. Contact us right away, firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will make all your travel arrangements and bookings for you.
