    Amazing protected bay near Philipsburg. Little Bay Beach had the best snorkeling that we found on the island! Walk up to Fort Amsterdam for great views.

    Enjoyed another great meal of grouper, Caribbean rice, and tossed salad. Excellent food for a very inexpensive price! Thank you, Calvin!! You need a sign on your building! The only sign I saw was inside the restaurant. People might miss your location on the boardwalk

    Sad to see what COVID has done to the island. Shops are open, shoppers are limited as the recovery slowly gains momentum.

    The fort is located on top of the hill by Divi Little bay and there is walking access up the gravel path to the fort. Alot of old remnants of the fort including cannons, great view of both bays from above and good signage telling about the history of the fort, etc.

    I heard Good Friday mass here and found it a reverent place whose congregation is friendly and welcoming. This is a simple island church but don’t let it beguile you, there’s an aura of fervent adoration that I found reassuring and peaceful. Usual statues in the nave, a simple altar and a swath of red, symbolic of the passion and blood of Christ. Outside is a beautiful garden, statues commemorating a miracle and a Shrine to our Lady of Salette. Worth your time, even if it is simply to reflect.....

    Great food. Decent prices. Very picturesque photo ops. Discounted perfumes and luxury makeup brands. We even found swimsuits at an awesome price ( we bought 10 pairs ) we loved the browsing around. Even got some unique gifts for friends.

    We were walking and shopping on front street and accidentally came across this sweet little museum. Definitely a must see as it won’t take much time - the museum is located on the upper floor. Interesting and brief overview of the history of this island. Some interesting artefacts to look at. Ground floor is a shop that sells little things that supports the running of this museum. I bought some cards and book marks. Very glad we stumbled upon it.

    Historical old colonial courthouse apparently still in regular use and right in the centre of the old town. Sited among the bustling shops on Front Street, this wooden building is an architectural delight.

    Our experience with Great Bay Express was OK, not great, just average. We did expect a bit better experience but it did the basic job of getting us to St Barth and back, albeit the very windy conditions and rough seas and back. On our way back one of the motors caught fire and it took three times as long to get back and once we arrived near the port we had to be towed in. The ship was clean and we were asked to clean our hands with gel upon boarding but not all staff were wearing masks and those wearing masks had them dangling around their lower jaw or took them off to smoke. Overall comparing to the Voyager Ferry that leaves the French side from Marigot, the Great Bay Express ship is larger and offers more comfortable seating. One plus was secure parking available at the port which made it convenient.

    We did a family trip to the water park and it was a lot of fun. Very nice staff who helped us along the way and made sure we were safe. The activities were great for adults and kids so we had lots of fun. All the running and swimming tires you out! Was a perfect family fun activity.

    Located right at the cruise point offering duty free shopping. Good place to buy spirits, cigarettes, cigars, and jewelry.

    This beach / bay is on the windward side of the island, so the winds seem to always blow and the surf is quite large. During our visit (we stayed in Casa Sunshine on the beach) we got to experience the beach daily. This isn't really a chill at the beach type of beach it is secluded and protected as a turtle sanctuary. The beach had lots of sargassum while we were there, but luckily it didn't stink - I think because of the wind. There were not very many bugs either. No vehicles are allowed so there is lots of seaweed and other debris that washes up. My family picked up a few bags of trash, but there really isn't anywhere to take it. We did have some issues with stray dogs, only one was aggressive but it scared a few people in our group.
