Saint Barthélemy

By plane
By plane

St Barts has a single, small airport located on its north coast called the Gustaf III Airport. International and full-sized planes cannot fly directly into Gustaf Airport, so visitors must first fly to another of the Caribbean Islands- such as St Martin or Guadalupe- and then take a smaller plane from there.
