Saint Barthélemy(France)

Saint Barthélemy, officially,Collectivité territoriale de Saint-Barthélemy,  is also called Ouanalao by the indigenous people. Often abbreviated to St-Barth in French, and St. Barths or St. Barts in English,  the island is  35 kilometres (22 mi) southeast of St. Martin and north of St. Kitts. Puerto Rico is 240 kilometres (150 mi) to the west in the Greater Antilles.

Residents of Saint-Barthélemy (Saint-Barthélemoise people) are French citizens and work at establishments on the island. Most of them are descendants of the first settlers, of Breton, Norman, Poitevin, Saintongeais and Angevin lineage. French is the native tongue of the population. English is understood in hotels and restaurants, and a small population of Anglophones have been resident in Gustavia for many years. The St. Barthélemy French patois is spoken by some 500–700 people in the leeward portion of the island and is superficially related to Quebec French,  whereas Créole French is limited to the windward side. Unlike other populations in the Caribbean, language preference between the Créole and Patois is geographically, and not racially, determined.The official currency of St. Barthélemy is the euro.

French cuisine, West Indian cuisine, Creole cuisine, Italian cuisine and Asian cuisine are common in St. Barthélemy. The island has over 70 restaurants serving many dishes and others are a significant number of gourmet restaurants; many of the finest restaurants are located in the hotels.[58] There are also a number of snack restaurants which the French call “les snacks” or “les petits creux” which include sandwiches, pizzas and salads.[59] West Indian cuisine, steamed vegetables with fresh fish is common; Creole dishes tend to be spicier.[59] The island hosts gastronomic events throughout the year, with dishes such as spring roll of shrimp and bacon, fresh grilled lobster, Chinese noodle salad with coconut milk, and grilled beef fillet etc

Boating, shipping,  tourism , agriculture,   perfomming arts, handicrafts,  and fishing are also mainstays of the economy.
