Vacation Eats: Barbecuing in St. Barths


Who doesn’t love to barbecue on a warm summer night? Now picture this in St. Barths, at your own private Caribbean villa! Most people imagine barbecues as an American summer tradition in the yard of their home. WIMCO’s villas truly are a home away from home and therefore we are encouraging guests to take this backyard tradition overseas to one of our villas.

Thinking of barbecuing on vacation? Check out Villa WV KRL. This spacious villa on St Barts is walking distance to St. Jean beach, restaurants and shops. It is perfect for a family barbecue after spending the day at the beach. While mom preps the food in the kitchen, and dad sets up the barbecue, the kids can enjoy sunning on the deck, playing in the yard, or cooling off in the pool.

St. Barths is known for its remarkable French groceries so prepping the barbecue should be a breeze! Neighborhood grocers are located all over the island with exotic and fresh groceries. If you want to spice up your barbecue with fish, the best advice is to wake up early and venture to the fish market in Gustavia where the fish goes straight from the fishermen to the customer. It doesn’t get any fresher than this!

Traveling to St. Barths in the summer is ideal since the island is not crowded and the rates for villas drop to very affordable levels. Take in a festival featuring delicious food, plenty of drinks, lots of dancing, catchy music and most of all locals celebrating pride for their culture. There is plenty for families to do on St Barths, like exploring the beaches, sailing, surfing, or fishing.

Barbecuing in a St. Barths villa should be at the top of your “bucket list”. Taking your traditions from home and bringing them to one of the most distinctive islands of the Caribbean is an opportunity you cannot pass up!
