Touristy things to do
Enjoy the beaches and Pool, the nightlife and dining. Shopping in Gustavia or St Jean is wonderful. For the kids St.Barths offers a multitude of water activities. Dine at a variety of famous places and even enjoy the exquisite food at LE SERENO if that is where you will be staying.

St. Barth's Guide and the Insider's Guide to St. Barthélemy

Grab your Ti' Gourmet Guide as soon as you arrive and carry it with you. It has maps, reviews, pictures of most of the places, and telephone numbers of all of the places mentioned.

Many stores are closed for an extended lunch. Typical hours are 10am to 1pm and 4pm to 7pm (not bad for getting in some beach time) Many Restaurants also have specific hours that they close between lunch and dinner. Sunday most places are closed. Don't let your gas tank go too low either, gas stations have limited hours and only take French credit cards off hours.

We love Le Sereno and La Marine, but you'll be trying those places anyway for the wedding and rehearsal dinner, here are some other options during your stay...

Restaurants / Food and Wine
One of the best things about St. Barths is the quality and variety of the food, and the various services related to dining.

This is true not only in numerous local restaurants, but in many local homes and rental villas as well, due to the unusually wide range of food and drink available at local grocery stores and wine shops. And, shopping for food and drink in St. Barths can be a delightful pastime. Stock up at the local grocery and wine store. You can find the best wine at La Cave. A wholesale depo located between St. Jean and Le Sereno Hotel.

Cocoloba
Named after the trees you sit under with your feet in the sand, located 2 doors down from Le Sereno Great Café Cream (same as Café con Leche), Heinekens, or Ham and cheese sandwiches. It can be accessed from beach. We love it!

The Hideaway or Chez Andy, who is the owner - from the UK.
Village of St Jean in the strip mall with parking. They have great pizza.

Bakery
Village of Saint Jean right by The Hideaway. Great pastries, baguettes, sandwiches and prepared foods.

Pimen
St Jean, on the busy corner across from the parking lot. It's a real locals hang-out.

There is an Italian deli/café across from Nikki Beach in St Jean too, down the hill from Hotel Village St Jean which has great snacks and Heinekens, of course.

Also, any of La Petite Colombe bakeries is great. There are several on the Island.

Buying Food To Go

Maya's to go
Across the street from the airport. They have really great prepared foods you can eat there or take away.

Superette
Across the street from airport. Supermarket has the best selection and the best value for food. Great to stalk up on cheese and snacks for your room or the beach.

Giraud Minimart ...not Philippe
Mini-market in Village of Lorient on the way from St Jean to Le Sereno. Less selection than Superette but conveniently located.

Buying Wine for Your Room, The Beach Or To Take Back With You

La Cave
Look for the sign on the way from Lorient to Le Sereno (direction from the airport). It's on the left hand side. This wine warehouse is a must see for wine enthusiasts. You can buy a $15 bottle or a $1500 bottle
