In spite of an airport runway that's not for the faint-hearted, St. Barths is synonymous with Caribbean elegance and chic. In this celebratory volume Pamela Fiori, a regular visitor for both work and pleasure, shares the legacy of the island. Through interviews with locals and regulars, many of them boldface names, she shows off the best beaches, villas with extraordinary views, and some of the island's most memorable destination weddings. A final chapter, "Essential St. Barths," features Fiori's pick of hotels, villa rental companies, event planners, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and shops.
Pamela Fiori's career in magazine publishing spans more than forty years. She was editor in chief of Town & Country, America's premier magazine for the affluent in America, for seventeen years.

An authority on luxury, travel, style, connoisseurship, and philanthropy, Fiori writes and speaks frequently on these subjects. Her first book, Stolen Moments, is a tribute to the photography of Ronny Jaques, a contemporary of Richard Avedon and Lillian Bassman.
