    Help

    We will be making our sixth visit to Anguilla in April. We have been meaning to get to St Barts for the last two years but have not made the time. This year, because we are using miles, we will be arriving thru SXM. I would like to spend a couple of nights in St Barts and would like a hotel recommendation. Don't need to have the most luxurious but would like to be on the beach. Also could use a couple of good restaurants. Thanks

    There are far too many options to list them all here. Only St. Jean and Flamands and the Cul de Sacs have hotels on the beach. Try doing a search on any of those. Also read here for a description of accommodations on the island, including a discussion of the common misunderstanding that you must stay on the beach.

    As for "a couple good restaurants," there are way too many good (and very many great) restaurants to try to list even a sampling of them here. Try the restaurant section of this site for reviews and ideas. Or look at recent trip reports, which usually include a discussion of restaurants. (Links to both are near the top of the page.)

    You might also consider picking up Fodor's Caribbean. It has both St. Barth and Anguilla and will have the kind of general information you are looking for about St. Barth.

    Beach Hotels:

    St Jean (lots to do, the 'action' beach in St Barts);
    Eden Rock: Very high end, expensive
    Filao Beach: Next to Eden Rock, moderate
    Emeraude Plage: Moderate
    Tom Beach: Funky, eclectic, moderate

    Flamands, quiet, gorgeous
    Isle de France: Very nice, tres expensive
    Baie des Anges: Moderate

    Cul de Sac, some more action, not as much as St Jean
    Guanahani: Expensive
    Sereno Beach: Moderate
    Les Ondines: Moderate

    Being on the beach is NOT important in St Barts. Go stay in the hills at Francois Plantation, save some bucks and have a GREAT time

    I am with you- if you are going to an island stay on the beach. The hotels listed in IV's post pretty much says it- if you want specific info go to the search engine here.
