For heritage lovers, the destination is layered with history. Before the Europeans arrived (1493 with Christopher Colombus), St. Barth was home to Arawak Indians and later Caribs, who knew the island as Ouanalao. French since 1656 with a Swedish interlude from 1784 to 1878, the enclave blends influences from both countries combined with local tradition.
