First (only) visit: June 2009
Visited: Gustavia, tour of whole island.
This is paradise on earth, the rich and famous have it right. Truly a tiny island, this combines wonderful shores with an atmosphere of relaxed sophistication that can only win you over. The people are friendly, and why shouldn't they be, they have no care in the world here. If you are seeking an escape from everything you know, this may well be the place to come.
Highlight: The dangerous airport approach - not for the faint hearted.
Ranking: 2/217 - first in fact, only that Portugal gets extra points as I have visited it multiple times, and just passes this piece of heaven.
