So, I’m closing this St Barth 2010 holidays report with this post.
It was always not easy to come back from St Barth, but this time, gosh…, it was even more difficult. These 2 weeks were so great.
Two pictures from the flight between St Barth and Saint Martin.
Saline beach and Petite Anse
Some views from the Villa we have rent this year…
From far the best one we have ever rent in Saint Barth! Among others, the view on Saint Jean Bay was absolutely fantastic…

Again, Saint Jean Beach, with its sea turtles. So elegant!

We are back…
So, we are back from Saint Barth, still jet-lagged, already missing our island, its colors, its people, the sea and the sun. Almost everything…
The “back to reality” journey is, as usual, not super interesting ;-)
It is really hard to leave after having such a nice time with wife and son. No drama but I always feel like I am leaving something behind…
Anyway, I would like to finish to post some pictures from our last days in Saint Barth. Good reminder for me, at least ;-)
The wild Toiny
Very breezy, but so fantastic, hike at La Pointe around Toiny. A rare wild area on the island. Second time there, again “plein les yeux”!
I will keep the lights and colors of this hike in my head/eyes for a while :-)
Surely one of our preferred beach on Saint Barth. The colors are just crazy. We had definitely a great time there!
The swell has generated quite bug waves yesterday! We had a walk at Flamand beach in the morning, quite impressive. Never seen such kind of waves in the last 6 years…
Then, a visit to the Lorient beach, beautiful colors, lots of families. Really cool.
We had a super nice dinner at the
Eden Rock. Always one of the dinners’ highlight on Saint Barth ;-) Big waves at Flamand
Intensive day ;-)
We had another great morning at the Saint Jean Beach. The afternoon was quite cloudy, but hey, that was ok for our skins ;-)
A “simple” evening at the restaurant/take away “Le Petit Bouchon”. I had a cool Beef Carpaccio, with a lot of Parmesan and … French fries!
Shadows on Saint Jean Beach
This evening should one of the “dinner highlight”!
More on that tomorrow.
Colombier Bay is still so marvelous. We were there quite early in the morning and were alone on the beach during 2 hours. Nice experience ;-)
The views during the walk to the Colombier beach are quite fantastic.
Nice evening too at the Pipiri Palace restaurant in Gustavia. As usual there, good atmosphere, good service, nice people, and very good meal.
Walk to Colombier
Yes, we know that it is still snowing at home, again 10cm!
Yesterday was another great “Saint Barth’s” day!
First a great 3-hours stroll at Grand Fond, where we have visited the so-called “baignoires”, i.e. the natural baths created by the ocean erosion.
Also our first shopping at Gustavia:
Pati of Saint Barth, Mia Zia, etc.
Then a very good dinner at
Maya’s restaurant. Cool and efficient service, very fresh. I had first a Mojito cocktail, then a big salad (mesclun, how do you call it in English?) and a fantastic Tandori (no Roy it wasn’t so much spicy, as you would like it ;-).
Everywhere, a lot of cool known faces, who made us feel at home!
Grand Fond beach
The famous baignoires of Saint Barth
That’s exactly the kind of perfect day which will make us come back here as soon as possible…
Tomorrow should be another stroll to Colombier, with a snorkeling session.
