Moving on from the tranquillity of Anse de Colombier, you come to the chic and sophisticated harbor of Gustavia, a long-standing favorite of the cool and trendy, who have returned annually since the 1950s for a fix of its unique Caribbean charm. In the process, they’ve earned Gustavia the title of "Riviera of the Caribbean". A yacht charter here gives you an opportunity to experience its delights for yourself.
The harbor is snug, well-protected, and surrounded by distinctive red-roofed buildings. Hang out aboard your deck and try not to drool as you look in wonder at the mega yachts.
St. Barts has a distinctly French ambience and is home to a fine coterie of elegant boutiques with clothes and jewelry by international designers, as well as hosting some interesting vintage markets. As you might anticipate, you can expect to find some 'seriously good restaurants' specializing in fine French Cuisine. There are plenty of more casual options too – take a stroll through the picturesque narrow streets of Gustavia and you are bound to find one that appeals.
- Moorings are available for a fee.
- The anchorage is extensive and can be busy in peak season.
- Because the harbor bed can be weedy you need to ensure that your anchor is well dug. Dinghy dockage is available.
