Conde Nast Traveler's founding principle of "Truth in Travel" dictates that its writers travel anonymously and pay their own way, thus assuring their credibility and independence from the travel industry. The writers experience travel the way everyone else does, both the good and bad, and record their impressions honestly and fairly. Although the magazine is mainly targeted at recreation travel, it also targets business travelers. In addition to writing about various exotic locales to help readers decide on their destinations, Traveler also offers informative features that explore regional culture, transportation, and cuisine, highlighting amusing diversions unique to each place. The focus is almost always on destinations that are quite opulent.

It is a high-quality travel and lifestyles magazine aimed at upscale experienced travelers. The magazine calls itself 'An insider's guide to the outside world'.

Inside, readers find stunning photography, maps, tips and well-written articles on exotic first-class vacation destinations. Conde Nast Traveler aims to keep readers abreast on the latest news, bargain travel deals, and the most interesting tourist destinations available. In addition to serving up plenty of practical advice, the magazine also scours the globe to present locales that are lesser-known yet possess something unique to offer.

St Barthelemy (St Barts) is such a place. Located in the middle of the turquoise ocean, situated near the northern end of the Lesser Antilles group in the French West Indies. At a distance of 200 km from the island of Guadeloupe and 25 km from Saint-Martin. It is a mountainous island of 25 sq km, whose only flat area is occupied by the airport's runway. As the climate is rather dry, agriculture has never been developed, thus throughout history few slaves had ever been employed. For the most part, St. Bartians are descendants of Breton and Norman fisherfolk. Many are of French and Swedish ancestry, the latter evident in their fair skin, blond hair, and blue eyes. The inland is dry and mountainous, the highest peak is at 300 m above sea level. Stonewalls separating the parcels of land reflect the origins of the inhabitants.

Rent a small off road vehicle, lift off the top and discover the island - on the narrow, winding roads you hardly ever exceed 50 km/h. Folklore claims that the entire road system on the island is paved-over goat paths. The landscape is characterized by green rolling hills (highest top: 938 ft, Morne du Vitet), and 22 white sandy beaches, all public, most sheltered by a coral reef and some only accessible by foot. These beautiful beaches lend themselves to water sports, from windsurfing, scuba and snorkeling to jet skiing, sailing and deep-sea fishing.

The island's other claim to fame is its fine dining, considered among the best in the Caribbean. Lunch or dinner at one of the island's top restaurants can be a major splurge. Not long ago, St. Barts was a clandestine hideaway of Rockefellers, Rothschilds, and their lucky confidants: the celebrated, the wealthy, the globally glamorous. When Mariah Carey wants to throw a birthday bash or Leonardo di Caprio decides to host a New Year's Eve party on his chartered yacht, St. Bart's is the island of choice. The favorite of celebrity jet-setters, now, though this snug, delectably French island hosts a more democratic crowd, it retains an elite yet casual aura and continues to lure travelers who seek a vacation as classy as it is restful and scenic.

You come to St. Barts for the relaxation, the French cuisine, the white-sand beaches, and the ultimate in comfort.
