The Caribbean island of Saint Barthelemy, more commonly known as St. Barts, is a popular vacation destination to escape winters throughout the world. The rich and famous are known to visit during Christmas and New Years. As an overseas territory belonging to France, the language, culture and cuisine all exhibit French influence.
The Plage de Saline, or La Saline les Baines, is a beautiful beach located just 20 minutes from anywhere else on the island. Carlos Melia, travel expert, reports that Saline is known as the “Gay Hotspot” of the island. The beach celebrates its european heritage with a clothing optional section further down the sand. With no construction along the shoreline, few enough people to make it interesting but not overcrowded, and surrounding greenery – Melia ranks this beach among his top favorite in the world.
