All around the world, people want to see St Barts airport landing photos. Why? Because they are nothing short of spectacular.

I had already published an article about St Barts landing videos, but I wanted to see what St Barths-related Instagram accounts had to offer.

St. Barts airport has a very short strip, stuck by a steep hill and the beach. It is supposed to be the second most difficult airport strip to land, after Saba. Pilots need a special licence to make it to St. Barths!

A lot of people go to Col de la Tourmente to take amazing photos of planes landing in Saint Barthélemy. Here are a few of them.

If you are staying at either my villa BelAmour or my villa Domingue, there is a 90% chance that you will arrive by plane (unless you take the ferry from St. Martin).
