Gustavia, St Barthélemy
Mega Yachts Watching in Gustavia HarborSt. Barths is a tiny island with a tiny harbor located in its tiny capital city, Gustavia.
If you look at my photo, you will see 3 "average" yachts parked in front of the island's City Hall. It is always funny to notice how small the buildings are in Gustavia, compared with boats parading in the port.
The port authorities always make sure that the biggest boats are stationed in the middle of the harbor, so that everyone can see them.
In the morning, you can leisurely stroll by the yachts and chat up to the crews. Everybody is very relaxed here, even if their billionaire owners of the boats are aboard.
As the island hosts several famous regattas, such as the St. Barths Bucket and Les Voiles de Saint Barth, islanders and tourists can every year see some of the most beautiful yachts and sailing boats in the world.
