After a splendid few days on St Barts, we checked out in Gustavia and on Thursday sailed the 5 miles or so over to the tiny island of Fourchue.  This is still part of St Barts, but is an uninhabited island with no buildings ashore. There is one protected anchorage, facing roughly southwest and is horseshoe shaped with a small rocky beach at its head.  The island is rocky and dry but with red cliffs lining the anchorage. It’s also part of St Barts marine parks so the snorkelling is excellent.
