Travel Notes: Escape to St. Barths

for our April Style Guide, our team and photographer Cass Bird hopped on a
plane down to St. Barths, where they chartered a private yacht, swam in the
Caribbean Sea and, in short, had the kind of enviable time that has us dreaming
about warm summer days…image
The crew set up base camp at the Grand Cul de Sac, a dreamy stretch of white-sand
shoreline that has the prettiest light. For more outtakes from the shoot and a look at
the short film by Cass Bird, click here.

St. Barths’ Must-sees, Must-dos
1. Charter a yacht like Lone Fox (the one we used for the shoot) for a
catered cruise around the postcard-worthy Caribbean waters.
2. For quintessential St. Barths dining, one of the best places on the island is
Maya’s Restaurant, which is something of an institution (opened in 1984 when its owners set up shop on land after living on a sailboat for eight years). The menu
changes daily and always includes freshly caught local fish like mahimahi and
red snapper.
3. For some of the bluest swimming waters around, one of our In Good Company
partners, Araks Yeramyan—who dreamed up a few rather St. Barths worthy
swimsuits for us this season—suggests Grand Saline, where, she says, the water
is so blue it’s surreal.
4. One of our favorite things to do in the morning is pick up coffee and a pain au
chocolat from La Petite Colombe, a local patisserie. You’ll also find a selection of quiches
and sandwiches that you can take out and save for a picnic on the beach later.
