Naughty Guide to St. Barths
A designated playground for the rich and famous, and winter home for the international jet set.
St. Barths is a small volcanic island surrounded by enchanting shallow reefs, million dollar yachts and crystal blue waters that drip with the promise of adventure and the ultimate experience in relaxation.
Originally a French collective, the language, culture and cuisine are distinctly French, with the obvious influence of the indigenous West Indies culture that once thrived here.
While the dominant language is French, the tourism trade has made English an easily accessible language, with many of St. Barths inhabitants fluent in both languages.
While the Maldives are my favorite islands to visit, St. Barths ranks as my second favorite island destination, with its proliferation of local charm, color and genuine friendliness.
The locals are quick to get to know you, often recognizing you immediately the next day.
This is a fabulous place to experience the best and most decadent aspects of European Culture without ever having to visit Europe.
The food, nightlife, openness to culture, sex and nudity, make it a formidable destination for the celebrity, jet set scene that flock here in droves year round.
This openness, while retaining an air of privacy and courtesy, is perhaps what makes St. Barths so unique, separating it from the other Caribbean Islands.
Topless Pools and Nude Beaches
There are a proliferation of pools and all of them are topless (if you choose to take your top off).
Almost all of the hotels on the island with beach access will allow visitors to use the pool if you're coming for drinks, lunch, sun bathing or general relaxation.
Don't be shy! Get out and explore all of the wonderful and exotic swimming locales the island has in store!
Nudity is allowed but only on private beaches, which are usually well hidden.

Vanita Rosa is the creation of celebrated French model and fashion photographer Valerie Bourdin.
With designs and textures inspired by the island itself, Vanita Rosa has a huge range of unique and expressive pieces which include dresses, tops and shorts.
This is also a fantastic place to find sexy cover ups or that perfect silk dress for a night out!
Elegant and chic, Vanita Rosa uses only the finest fabrics available for their clothing, making sure that every stylish outfit is also one of the most comfortable as well as perfect for your island getaway!
Clic Bookstore and Gallery
Rue de la Republique - Gustavia
This is the naughtiest bookstore on the island with a fabulous selection of limited edition books celebrating erotic nudes, as well as beautiful prints to take home and hang on your wall.
Plus, many local artists display their work here including the talented, celebrity photographer Jean-Philipe Piter, who's well known for his photos of erotic nudes.
He is also the publisher of Pure, the naughtiest magazine on the island! You can't miss it as it's always the one with the beautiful, naked girl on the cover!
He's available for private shoots. Just email or call him and he gets back to you right away, even going as far as meeting with you to help you become more comfortable and to learn what kind of pictures you want.
He will even take you to the various beaches that he feels get the highest quality beach photos.
He also has access to gorgeous villa's with a beautiful, sexy pool to shoot in. This is definitely a great souvenir gift to take home with you!
Nightclubs and Restaurants
Centre Vaval - St. Jean Gustavia
Walking into Modjo's feels like stepping into the movie Dirty Dancing when Baby is carrying the watermelon into the staff's nightclub area and she sees them getting down with their naughty, dirty dancing.
She looks at them in such awe and wants so badly to be part of the crowd.
The same thing happens when you walk into Modjo's as you instantly want to be a part of what they are offering; something different and cool.
This is one of the newest nightclubs on the island and one of the best in my opinion.
If you're tired of the same old thump, thump house music then this is the perfect venue, as they play great music from the 60s, 70s, 80s and some current.
Plus, it's a bit of an older crowd, 30 and up, separating it from the youngsters of the house music generation. A great place to unwind and let the good times roll!
Rue Lubin Brin, Gustavia
One of the best and sexiest restaurants in St. Barth's, as soon as you walk into the place there's a store to the left that sells "barely there" dresses for those hot nights out on the island.
You can't help but notice the energy of the place once you step inside. The DJ spins lounge music but mixes it up later in the night with 70s, 80s, 90s music.
If you're jet lagged and looking for a place to stimulate and wake up all your senses then head to Bonito.
The sheer energy of the place will keep you awake and energized to head out afterwards!
The seats are cozy with gorgeous views of the harbor, beautiful people all around you and some of the finest food on the island.
The first time I went, I ended up going back the next night as there were so many options on the menu!
Plus, Bonito is the only place open late sometimes on the island.
Try some of their speciality drinks such as the Porn Star or Porn King, if only to feel like one for the night! The Porn Star drink was my favorite!
Pointe Milou, Anse de Lorient
The only dinner and cabaret show on the island, this venue screams sexy with their red walls and red lighting.
Be sure to stay late, after the show, as the place gets really wild. It's located just outside of downtown, near the Pointe Milou district.
The show starts at 10, so get there early to enjoy the bar and get a good seat before it gets too crowded.
Weekdays are best, as it's not super packed! Even though there are fewer people it's just as energetic and fun.
Make sure to check out their store before the show start! It's the only "showgirl style" store on the island with crystal bras, panties, garter belts and more.
Or you can wait to see what's inside the store, as there's a fashion show before the cabaret show.
Roughly 10 minutes later the cabaret show starts with about 5 acts, including one male performance.
The last act includes audience participation, so the closer you are to the stage, the more likely they will grab you to join them on stage.
But this is all in the spirit of fun and the beginning of the after-party, when the locals come to join in.
If you're here on a weekday and the place is happening, I would most definitely stay, as most places aren't open this late on weekdays!
Rue Samuel Fahlberg, Gustavia
Bagatelle is famous around the world in various, major cities and is well known as 'the place to be.'
Located in downtown Gustavia, sitting on the pier, this is certainly the place to be seen in St. Barths!
Decked out in Bagatelle's signature all white decor with epic chandeliers, this place is stylish AND gorgeous. Weekends are best, but also depending on the time of year, this place can get very packed.
Not being very big inside, the overflow spills outside on the patio and onto the pier.
You can eat dinner here but it's really not known for its food, so I would suggest trying somewhere else to eat.
The venue turns in to a dance club around 11pm and goes well into the night.
Locals tend to arrive later in the evening as they get off of work, and it tends to be a younger crowd; 30s and under.
The music is a mix between house and R&B. A great scene with beautiful people doing what they do; Having Wild and Sexy, Naughty Fun!
