St-Barthélemy rises from the ashes
Without waiting for any help, Hurricane Irma calmed down, all the inhabitants of the island mobilized voluntarily and spontaneously to clear up what could be cleared as soon as possible. This is the « spirit of Saint Barth », a strong sense of civic-mindedness, a common desire to revive the island and to welcome the visitors back as soon as possible.
« Our island, more beautiful, more vibrant than ever, is now regaining its charm and infrastructure to welcome its aficionados, eager to discover, which is a good omen, « Saint Barth 2.0 » (post Irma).
Tourism is one of the most important pillars of our economy, a quality, high-end tourism that we are working to stabilize and that ensures the well-being of the population. The 9,800 Saint-Barthinians known as « Saint-Barth » are delighted to share, once again, with generosity and spontaneity, their small 21 km2 paradise with those attached to its shores. Everything is done to give them unique moments. Exclusive » explains Nils Dufau, President of the Tourism Committee of the Island of St-Barthélemy.
