St. Barths New Year’s Eve

8 12 2008

31 December 2008

Truly must I explain this one? Really?!?

St. Barthélemy aka St. Barths, an 8 square mile Caribbean island featuring over 22 white sand powdered beaches, is one of THE winter playgrounds for Jet-setters, the Wealthy, Sophisticates and, bien sur, the Socialites among us. If you’re a True Socialite, or at least good friends with one of them, private beach access is de rigeur. 


Pity… Then Toiny, Grand Cul de Sac, Lorient Beach, les Salines, Shell Beach, St. Jean, Gouvernor or Colombier Beaches will have to do. 

Top St. Barth Activities: lounging, yachting, watching the seaplanes land, laying out, more yachting, seeing and being seen but feigning indifference, mega-yachting and dancing the night away!

New Year’s Eve- the World’s biggest party- is no exception. The day begins with the St. Barth New Year’s Eve Regatta organized in conjunction with the St. Barth Yacht Club at the Port of Gustavia. An informal competition, the port typically host attendees with champagne and beer on the dock during the sundown awards ceremony.

In the evening, make your merry way over to Nikki Beach St. Barth and the Strand Restuarant in St. Jean to ring in the New Year, watch fireworks in the harbor and listen to the yachts blow at midnight…

The Faux Socialite© Note: Do save yourself from a trip in the puddle-jumper from St. Maarten…

Faux Socialites in-the-know leave from Miami or San Juan using charter plane service. Just sayin’ and you, Darling Friend, will thank me… ;o)
