Saint-BarthÃ©lemy is an overseas collectivity of France. Often abbreviated to Saint-Barth in French, or St. Barts or St. Barths in English; the indigenous people call the island Ouanalao. St. BarthÃ©lemy lies about 22 miles southeast of St. Martin and north of St. Kitts. Puerto Rico is 150 miles to the west in the Greater Antilles.
St Barts is a volcanic island fully encircled by shallow reefs, and was for many years a French commune forming part of Guadeloupe, which is an overseas region and department of France. In 2003, the island voted in favor of secession from Guadeloupe in order to form a separate overseas collectivity of France. The collectivity is one of four territories among the Leeward Islands in the northeastern Caribbean that comprise the French West Indies, along with Saint Martin, Guadeloupe and Martinique.
St Barts represents has a land area of just 9.7 square miles, and a population of 9,035. It is the only Caribbean island which was a Swedish colony for any significant length of time; Guadeloupe was under Swedish rule briefly at the end of the Napoleonic Wars. Symbolism from the Swedish national arms, the Three Crowns, still appears in the island's coat of arms.
There is no mistaking that the language, cuisine, and culture, however, are distinctly French. The island is a popular tourist destination during the winter holiday season, especially for the rich and famous taking private jet charter to St. Barts during the Christmas and New Year period.
The island is known for its white-sand beaches, chic hotels, and designer shops and spas. The capital, Gustavia, encircling a yacht-filled harbor, combines high-end dining with historical attractions like The Wall House, whose exhibits highlight the island's Swedish colonial era. Perched above town is 17th-century Fort Karl, offering spectacular views of popular Shell Beach.
