1 day cruise ship call

We will have a day in Gustavia shortly after Christmas and do not really want to spend it on the beach. Has anyone used a driver/guide for a private tour of the island please?

I can't recommend a driver but there will be some waiting for your tender to arrive. You will also want to spend some time in Gustavia, especially if you are interested in shopping. Besides high end designers and jewelers, there are lots of cool shops. Plenty of places for lunch as well.

And even though you don't want a beach, take a stroll over to Shell beach. Its make of, well, shells, instead of sand.

Don't most of the stores in Gustavia still shut down for 3-4 hrs. midday??

Thanks for the thought but we do not have any interest in shopping anyway.

Some of the stores shut whenever there is a cruise ship in port.
