While the European Union seems to be planning to bar American travellers from visiting the continent this summer, the island of St. Barths, the most glamorous of France’s Caribbean islands has just reopened its borders to all visitors. As of this week, the island is reachable from North America through San Juan, P.R. only, but the airport of nearby St. Martin is poised to reopen on July 1st.
Visitors are required, however, to bring proof that they have tested negative for Covid-19 within three days of their trip. If no test is available in their home countries, travellers will be required to get tested within 24 hours of arrival on the island and will need to quarantine with their traveling party until the results are in, about 24 hours.

Beaches such as the stunning les Salines , restaurants, bars and boutiques on St. Barths are open, all with the latest health protocols and there are about 850 villas available for rent this summer.
St. Barths was discovered in 1493 by Christopher Columbus who named it for his brother Bartholomew. It became a property of France but was then bartered to Sweden for the right for French ships to dock in Göteborg. Finally retroceded to France in 1877, the island is now a “Collectivité d’Outre Mer.” It’s a part of the French West Indies (with Guadeloupe, the French side of St. Marten and Martinique) but not part of the Shengen territory.
