Get to know Pointe Milou

Pointe Milou is one of the rare neighborhoods in St. Barth that doesn’t include a beach. Instead, this primarily residential area is set among the volcanic cliffs above Lorient. The villas in Pointe Milou have stunning views and residents make the most of their perch above the St. Jean Bay, enjoying the sunsets from their decks. With few restaurants or shops in Pointe Milou, most people drive to nearby Lorient or St. Jean for provisions or to head to the beach. But there is one establishment where people come from all over to visit: the island’s go-to night club, the hedonistic Le Ti St. Barth. With a staff dressed to match the pirate-themed bordello décor, Le Ti serves up burlesque and cabaret shows during dinner. There’s a resident DJ too, so you can shake your tail feather all night long.

Living in St. Barth

St. Barthélemy, or St. Barth, is a small island of volcanic rock, just eight square miles big, in the Caribbean. But this tiny island, with its 14 public beaches, is one of the world’s most luxurious getaways that also manages to feel completely down to earth. An overseas collectivity of France, St. Barth was sparsely populated and rarely visited by outsiders until the 1950s. In the mid-1950s, David Rockefeller, who had spied St. Barth from his sailboat, bought and built his clifftop estate. In 1953, Rémy de Haenen, a Dutch-French adventurer, opened the Eden Rock hotel, and with that, the island was off to the races. In a place where no building is higher than a palm tree and the celebrities blend into the sea, St. Barth has managed to remain unspoiled and genuine. It’s an island where superyachts dock but also where giant turtles swim in secret swimming holes and goats rule the cliffs, all part of the magic of St. Barth.
