Gustavia

Gustavia is the island’s capital, with a large natural harbour whose leeward position means it is sheltered from storms and where a good many of the world’s most beautiful yachts come to moor up in winter. Throughout history this splendid place has been the envy of nations, and it is still the economic hub of the island today. It is a small town which still has some Antilles style timber houses, but no specific landmarks apart from perhaps the town hall and local government buildings, and of course the Wall House, a rare vestige of the Swedish era, along with the old Clock Tower and the names of the streets being in two languages. The stone and timber clock tower with its Scandinavian pointed roof is one of the rare edifices to have survived the centuries, blending in well with the red rooftops of the small houses lining the bay. One can easily visit the town on foot, then wander down to the port for a trip on a glass-bottomed boat, affording a simply magnificent view of the waters and marine life in and around Gustavia.
