Even a tiny island like St Barth has its secrets.
And this one is hidden in plain sight.
You can see it when you land at Carl Gustaf airport, if you look to your left as you head over the green hills and the roundabout.
You can see it if you squint from St Jean beach.
Because here, set away from the crowds on a beautiful stretch of beach, is one of St Barth’s most closely guarded secrets.
This is Les Ilets de la Plage, the colorful beach resort designed for those looking for an authentic, romantic, toes-in-the-sand St Barth experience.
It’s comprised of 12 villas, some bungalows set on the beach, others larger cottages tucked amid the resort’s tropical gardens, from one to three bedrooms.
And every one has a kitchen, because this is a villa resort, a place to live, from which you can enjoy the delights of St Barth living.
You can go shopping at the market, bring home your baguettes in the late afternoon, or have ti’ punch all day on the sand.
It’s a place for hammocks and beach naps and the castaway experience you didn’t even know you could have in St Barth.
And no matter what time of day you’re here, the only sounds are the waving palms and the froth of the waves.
It’s the Caribbean beach resort you dream about, a gateway to a St Barth few ever get to enjoy.
