Pondering over which gorgeous Caribbean island might suit you best has to be one of life’s more pleasant problems to solve. Though the islands are united by their wonderful climate, natural beauty and warm welcome, many of them have special or even unique attractions depending on taste. St Barths is synonymous with ritzy international wealth and the high life. It’s the perfect Caribbean island for retail addicts and hedonistic groups.

When children are babies and up to, let’s say, twelve years old, they will follow you everywhere. Or rather, they must follow you unless they want to stay home alone or stay with grandma (also a great option, lots of the times!).
