After the natural peace of Barbuda, Gustavia in St Barth was a very different prospect. Busy French town with lots of bars and restaurants - along with very high end shopping - Prada , Gucci etc. We settled for a couple of St Barth t-shirts - more our budget and we stayed away from the other shops so we didn’t get tempted.
We hired a quad bike and took a tour of the island - had some fabulous views
And found a beautiful beach on the south of the island for a cooling swim (saline bay)
We couldn’t avoid the tiny airport with its small runway looking out to sea.
After the tour we had beer and burgers in Le Select a local institution
We then moved Tikka from Gustavia to Colombier Bay pictured above - lovely place only accessible by boat. Crystal clear water perfect for snorkelling - we saw many turtles, rays and a sand shark.
We had a quiet night on board and got ready to sail up to St Maarten
