St. Bart’s often is noted as the St. Tropez of the Caribbean. This lavish little island is home to some of the Caribbean’s top hotels, restaurants and events. The “it” place to ring in the New Year, come late December Gustavia Harbour is filled with yachts all ready for a glimpse of the impressive firework display. While in town, enjoy brunch at Nikki Beach — the perfect place to catch sun and swill rose. If you’re in need of accommodations, look no further than the Eden Rock, St. Bart’s. The premier luxury resort on the island offers an array of incredible amenities. You will be spoiled for choice when deciding between a beach villa, the legacy suites or the garden cottages. Be sure to enjoy a meal at On The Rocks, the glamorous dining establishment where patrons go to see and be seen.
The Leeward Island chain also is home to the relatively undiscovered island of St. Kitts. Boasting pristine natural splendor and an authentic Caribbean soul, St. Kitts is the perfect place to get away from it all. From rainforests to incredible reefs, beauty abounds on St. Kitts. Visit from mid-December through early January as islanders celebrate the spirit of Christmas during Carnival. The island bursts with even more color and life as music and revelry are found at every turn. St. Kitts also is home to the new Marina at Port Christophe, a new luxury resort and marina with impeccable amenities — the perfect place to rest your head during your exploration and enjoyment of St. Kitts.
No matter which of the Leeward Islands you choose to enjoy, you won’t be disappointed. During the winter months, there are few better ways to cure the blues than enjoying some fun in the Caribbean sun.
