An Ocean of Fun: Water Activities in St. Barths
There are many ways to experience the striking beauty of St. Barths—lounging on the beach, hiking, and fine dining just to name a few.
For those with a thirst for adventure, however, nothing beats the thrill of getting out on the water. With the island’s wealth of ocean activities, you may never want to return to shore…
St Barths is beautiful above the surface, but it might be even more breathtaking beneath it. A treasure trove of coral reefs, exotic fish, sea turtles, and vibrant marine life, this underwater world offers a crystal clear insight into the secrets of the Caribbean Sea. Grab your complimentary snorkeling equipment from Le Sereno, find your favorite coral reef (we recommend Colombier Beach), and dive on in! Scuba diving charters are also available for those who are interested.
Kite Surfing and Wind Surfing
With its shallow waters, protected lagoons, and exposure to northeastern trade winds, Grand Cul de Sac—the bay directly outside Le Sereno—is widely regarded as one of the world’s finest kite and wind surfing destinations. Expert surfers test their luck here on a daily basis, but it’s also the perfect spot for a first outing. Contact us for special kite surfing packages, private lessons, or equipment rentals.
Kayaking and Paddle Boarding
Looking for a quick excursion to explore those hard-to-access beaches and coral reefs? Look no further than the glass-bottom kayaks and stand-up paddleboards available at Le Sereno. Perfect for a serene afternoon in Grand Cul de Sac or even a venture out onto the open ocean, these complimentary activities are both exciting and great exercise. With some luck, you may even encounter some native marine life—like sea turtles or dolphins.
If your idea of a good time involves drifting on the open ocean and reeling in enormous fish, you’ve come to the right place. Surrounded by the legendary sport fishing waters of the Caribbean Sea, St. Barths offers a game selection like no other—from blue marlin to wahoo to yellowfin tuna. Contact Le Sereno to book a private charter with one of the island’s several marinas.
Unless you arrive on a 100-foot yacht, chances are you are missing out on the best views of the island—from the ocean looking in. Not to worry: St. Barths has multiple options for renting jetskis, motor boats, catamarans, sunset cruises, and more. Whichever you choose, prepare to be amazed by a spectacular array of turquoise waters, tropical views, and unforgettable times.
