St Barthélemy is in the middle of the turquoise ocean, situated near the northern end of the Lesser Antilles group in the West Indies. At a distance of 200 kms from the island of Guadeloupe and 25 kms from Saint-Martin.
It is a mountainous island of 25 sq kms, whose only flat area is occupied by the airport’s runway.
As the climate is rather dry, agriculture has never been developed.
For the most part, the St. Barths are descendants of Breton and Norman fisherfolk. Many are of French and Swedish ancestry, the latter evident in their fair skin, blond hair, and blue eyes.
