Pristine sandy beaches, red-roofed vacation homes, and French influence attract travelers to Gustavia, a town on the Caribbean island of Saint Barthélemy.
And while there’s plenty to entice travelers to visit, it comes at a cost.
According to Florida Panhandle, a travel brand that promotes tourism in the Sunshine State, Gustavia is the world’s most expensive travel destination.
The organization analyzed data from more than 100 popular vacation destinations. They considered factors such as the nightly rate for accommodations, flights, meals, and daily transportation prices, as well as the most popular attractions in each place.
And Gustavia easily topped the list.
According to the travel study, the cost of a single day for a traveler averages $1,852 — and that doesn’t even factor in the airfare.

It’s expensive partly because most goods on the island need to be imported, but also because it’s earned a reputation for catering to rich clientele, according to HuffPost.
