Île Saint-Barthélemy Warnings Or Dangers Tips by Geisha_Girl
Île Saint-Barthélemy Warnings and Dangers: 1 reviews and 2 photos
I have muscled my way through the Himalayas, swam with sharks in French Polynesia, climbed to the top of a volcano in Vanuatu, and climbed the highest point in Africa.....but those experiences don't even come close in comparison to that "life flash before your eyes" landing onto the 800-foot airstrip in St. Barths.
It's amazing how skilled these pilots are and trained to avoid nippin' the sunbathers on St. Jean Beach!
It's a 15 min. flight from St. Maarten to St. Barths. As you approach the landing strip, the plane descends between two mountains, then seems to drop suddenly-----to the 800-foot so-called runway below. The airstrip ends right onto St. Jean Beach, one of the island's hotspots, so that quick stop by the pilot is required!!
Situated atop one of the mountains is a white cross monument. I assume it's strategically placed so passengers can focus on their "Hail Marys" during the descent!
