It is often referred to as the French Riviera of the Caribbean. The beautiful island is famous for being one of the most expensive islands to visit in the world. St. Barts is hilly, eight square miles, and contains 21 white-sand beaches, all of which are open to the general public.  St Barts rarely gets crowded, even during the high season. The island takes great measures to cater to the rich, wealthy, famous and infamous. Visitors cannot help but notice the many million dollar yachts that occupy the harbor of Gustavia and the islands numerous inlets. Visitors can enter the island via plane at St. Barts tiny airport, or by ferry boats from the neighboring island of St. Martin.
