World's Most Romantic Islands

No. 18 St. Bart’s, French West Indies
St. Bart’s has seen its star shine bright over the years, attracting jet-setters and A-list celebrities to Baie des Flamands and banana-tree-shaded properties that excel in low-key super-luxe. If you’re after the privacy only a pool can offer, the intimate, easygoing Hotel Christopher boasts the island’s largest. From here, it’s a 20-minute drive to the gingerbread-trimmed main town of Gustavia, with a clutch of high-design boutiques.
