It’s no secret that St. Barth’s has become one of the most coveted warm-weather getaways on vacation, known for its laid-back luxury, pristine beaches and vibrant nightlife. Just under 10 square miles in the heart of the Caribbean, the blink-and-you-miss destination leaves visitors in awe and eager to return.

Ahead of the holiday season, Jessica Fisher, holiday veteran of St. Barth—CEO and Founder of the charter airline market FLYJETS—shares her activity, destination, and dining recommendations for a holiday kickstarting the new year.

As a Territorial Community of France, St. Barth’s has a rich and varied cultural history, influenced by the Caribbean, France, Sweden and Portugal, culminating in a sophisticated yet accessible setting for the winter break. It is a volcanic island rich with tropical flora and fauna, and has no shortage of ocean and land adventures.

Fisher’s favorite thrill-seeking activity is an island jet ski trip. Most tours take about two hours to circumnavigate the entire island, which offers unique views of the coastline and vibrant native flora, towering mountains rising straight from the ocean. ocean and idyllic residential areas dotted the coast.

For a more relaxing afternoon, visit one of the island’s more than 20 beaches. Fisher’s Choice? Saline Beach, an unspoiled stretch of white sand overlooking turquoise waters against the dunes and verdant mountains.

The trip of St. Barth wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the destination’s charming neighborhoods, lined with eclectic fashion boutiques and glamorous restaurants. Lolita Jaca is a luxury womenswear boutique that showcases handcrafted fabrics and chic resort wear, while Poupette offers vibrant and colorful prints on floral sensational fabrics. as if they were made specifically for beach destinations. For dinner, Fisher’s go-to’s includes award-winning Bonito, a fine-dining restaurant serving fresh local seafood; and L’Isola, the chic Italian restaurant known for its finest ingredients straight from Italy.

However, perhaps the most thrilling part of St. Barth occurs just before landing; Gustaf Airport is famous for its short runway that makes you feel like you’ve landed on a dreamy island—that you have. For her visits, Fisher often books through FLYJETS, her airline marketplace app that allows you to book a private charter or seat on one, as well as providing the perfect group booking opportunity for family trips, reunions or outings with friends.

She herself is a lifelong aviation enthusiast and student pilot who enjoys quiet moments during her time in St. Barth, just sitting and watching planes take off and land, takes place on a roughly 2,100-foot runway that stops just off the coast and is fortified by towering volcanic formations.

Fisher describes: “The runway at Gustaf Airport is bananas – between two bodies of water and amazing scenery. “I love sitting on the cliffs and watching the planes fly over the water.”

Which context is better for landing? You may just want to stay forever.
