How many celebrities can you pack into 8 square miles? Take a trip to the Caribbean Island of St. Bart’s to find out. Once described by Vanity Fair as “summer camp for wealthy, well-known New Yorkers,” St. Bart’s has been crawling with celebs ever since the Rockefellers made it trendy back in the 1950s.
With only two-dozen hotels on the island this vacation spot is both secluded and exclusive – two things celebrities love. While strolling down the white sandy beaches, you might be lucky enough to bump into Leonardo DiCaprio frolicking with a harem of models or Rihanna rocking a tiny bikini.
The best time to go is at New Years when the celebrity parties are in full swing. Sneak into Russian billionaire Roman Abramovitch’s famous New Year shindig and be entertained by the likes of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Kings of Leon while chatting up stars like Paul McCartney, Jay Z & Beyoncé and Sting.
