Good afternoon.  My fiance and I are planning our honeymoon for Oct. 13-23.  Aside for a day trip from St. Martin in June of 2010 this is our first time to the island.  I understand the island is only 8 square miles, but for first timers is there a better part of the island to stay on?  In the hills, on the beach, east side, west side?  My fiance and I like a little night life.  What part of the island would put us closer to more activities, i.e. beaches that have calm waters, bars and restaurants.  Any suggestions are appreciated!

A St Jean or a Gustavia location will allow closer proximity to island amenities you are seeking.

Vitet is hillside, which means good ocean views and welcome breezes.  It is on the eastern side of the island, close enough to saline, marigot and grand fond beaches.

"i.e. beaches that have calm waters, bars and restaurants"

That wold be Grand Cul de Sac or Shell Beach.

Looking at your requirements, I would aim for Lurin...you are not far from Gustavia which is best for nightlife, and you have Shell Beach (as above) and also Gouverneur beach not far.

Drop me a line if you want a hand with villas.

you are correcct, the island is only 8 miles so no matter where you rent you will only be at most 10-15 minutes away from restaurants, shopping and beaches....
(except for Toiny)....but Le Gaiac in the hotel is a must for "that special dinner" 
today is the oldest you have ever been and the youngest you will ever be.....SO, ENJOY THE DAY

I think its excellent you are a planning a 10 night visit for your honeymoon.  No matter where you stay on the island, nothing is that far removed.  Picking St Barths for the honeymoon, means no question as to where to return for anniversaries.  Well Done!
