Gustavia

 

St Barts’ capital, Gustavia, is the travel hub for the island and known for its sophisticated, French-influenced customs and traditions.

Shaped like a horseshoe around a small, sheltered harbor, and once protected by stone forts whose vestiges remain today, Gustavia is a busy port town.

The charm of this city lies in its beautiful architecture. From the vestiges of the Swedish era with a pretty little Anglican church topped with a cupola in wood. You can see various colonial-style houses, some painted in bright Caribbean colors and others cool behind their white clapboard facades and slatted shutters

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
