St. Barths: Where The Rich And Famous Spend New Year's Eve

Ah, St. Barths. A beautiful French-speaking Caribbean island included in travel bucket lists thanks to its powdery white shores, five star restaurants and cafes, and concentration of historical sights to visit. It's picturesque all year round, but come Christmas and new year, the island practically becomes the most difficult place to book a room and table in as the island becomes party central for the world's rich and famous. St. Barths welcomes an influx of celebrities and socialites during the holidays, all of whom are out to party the night away from dusk till dawn.
