Our Travels in St. Bart’s
We first visited St. Bart’s during our July 2008 trip to St. Maarten. We took a ferry over and spent the day at Shell Beach. We had lunch at Le Select / Cheeseburger In Paradise and walked around Gustavia Harbour. We both loved it.
In November of 2009, we returned to the island on a rumor that Jimmy Buffett would be playing a concert in Gustavia Harbour to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Le Select. The rumor came true and we had one of the most magical experiences of our lives. Read more about our travels in St. Bart’s…
