Saint Barthélemy is also known as Saint Barths, Saint Barth, Saint Barts or St. Bart's. Until recently it was a part of Guadeloupe, but in 2007 it became an overseas collectivity of France.
Christopher Columbus, who discovered Saint Barthélemy in 1493, named the island after his brother Bartolomeo. The island wasn't settled until 1648 however, when French colonists from St Kitts made their home there.
Saint Barthélemy is an island roughly 250 km off the east coast of Puerto Rico and near the islands of Anguilla, Saint Martin and Saba. There are several small islets off the coast of the main island.
