Postcard Views in St. Barths

Visiting St. Barths is every photographer’s dream. Turquoise seas, dramatic peaks, and lush tropical vegetation… You won’t find a more camera-friendly setting in the entire world.

To capture these inspiring surroundings, we’ve compiled some of the island’s most picturesque spots and outlooks. Prepare your senses (and cameras) for some real-life postcard views.


  • Colombier

Colombier is arguably the island’s most picturesque beach. With its isolated lagoon, powdery sand, and spectacular snorkeling, it’s a must-visit for any beachgoer. Before you hike down, however, we suggest you take a minute to admire the spectacular view.

Home to some of the island’s most expansive scenery, the trail’s highest overlook offers panoramic visuals over Colombier Cove, St. Barths’ rocky northern coast, and even other islands to the west. Come during sunset and you’ll be guaranteed some magazine-worthy photography.

Grand Cul-de-Sac

  • Grand-2

Guests who prefer not to leave the hotel will find more than enough scenery directly outside their private terrace. Lounge by the pool, head out on a kayak, or watch the kitesurfers soar through the crystal-clear waters—there’s really not a bad picture to be taken anywhere. It’s no wonder this is where Victoria’s Secret chooses to hold many of its photo-shoots.

The World’s Most Picturesque Airport

  • Aerial View of St. Barths

Gustaf III Airport is not your typical landing spot. Not only are you surrounded by rugged peaks and tropical beach, you’re also descending at a literal 45-degree angle before coming to a dramatic halt just a few meters from the ocean.

Exhilaration aside, this spectacle makes for some pretty spectacular photography for those with a good camera and great timing. Spend an afternoon on the slopes west of the airport and chances are you’ll catch one of St. Barths’ most iconic sights.

Petit Cul-de-Sac

  • Petit-2

Of all the hidden gems on St. Barths, few can rival the raw beauty of Petit Cul-de-Sac, a short hike from Le Sereno along the island’s northeastern shoreline. The lagoon itself is stunning but it’s the natural pools that make this place truly one-of-a-kind. Peaceful, vibrant, and beautifully secluded, it’s the perfect spot to capture St. Barths at its best—and to cool off with a swim!

Under the Sea

  • Sea Turtle

St. Barths isn’t just picturesque above the water. Strap on some snorkeling gear and you’ll uncover a whole new world of tropical beauty below it. Be it at Colombier, Grand Cul de Sac, or Gouvernour, a waterproof camera lets you capture the Caribbean Sea at its finest: stunning corral reefs, colorful fish, and maybe even one of St. Barths’ majestic sea turtles.

Gustavia Lighthouse

  • Experience Our St. Barths Beach Resort

Coastal beauty meets city splendor when hiking to Gustavia’s famous lighthouse. With scenic views over the open ocean, the city harbor, and the island’s luxurious yachts, this is the perfect way to spend a summer afternoon. Have your camera ready as the sun sets over the capital and kicks off another night of Caribbean celebration.
