getting around St Barth

How getting around St Barth? Whether you choose to rent a car, hire a private chauffeur, or use other transportation options, St. Barth offers various ways to ensure you have a delightful and memorable time on the island.


Whether you’re staying in a villa or a hotel, having a car is essential in St. Barth. Public transportation is virtually non-existent, but taxi services are available. However, having your own rental car offers the freedom to getting around the island at your own pace, giving you the flexibility to do as you please when you please. Despite its small size of 8 square miles, St. Barth’s hilly terrain and narrow roads make having a car beneficial for discovering beautiful beaches, breathtaking vistas, upscale boutiques, and the finest restaurants on the island. You only need a valid driver’s license to rent a car, but be prepared for a unique driving experience on the island, as the roads can be narrow and hilly. At your request, we can arrange for various car options such as Mini Coopers, Jeeps, convertibles, or famous Mini Moke to be available as soon as you arrive.

At One St Barts, we make it easy for our confirmed guests by reserving a vehicle on your behalf. Upon your arrival at the airport, the rental car will be ready for you to pick up, and our greeter will be there to assist you to the rental area. Delivery at your villa is also possible for a smooth arrival. Our special relationships with the rental services like Sixt, Turbe or Maurice Car Rental ensure the availability of your preferred vehicle, even during peak times. Enjoy the convenience and freedom of having your own car while exploring the wonders of St. Barth.


You can use local taxis for your trips, especially in the evening. There are two taxi stations on the island: one in the center of Gustavia and one near the airport. Here is the official list of taxis on the island: St Barth taxis listing
