The Christmas Village on the dock at the Port of Gustavia, from December 15- 22, 2012
A St Barth Christmas
Christmas is celebrated in a big way in St Barth, as it is as on other Caribbean islands.
For the third consecutive year, the St Barth Tourism Committee will organize the third annual Christmas Village on the dock at the Port of Gustavia, with more stands and surprises than last year.
At this time of year, there are many yachts at the dock and the island's capital sparkles with holiday lights. It's also the busiest time of the year for visitors who are attracted by the warm temperatures and turquoise waters of this tropical paradise.
It's the perfect occasion for a shopping expedition to Gustavia's many elegant boutiques and a visit to this charming Christmas Village while strolling along the docks. Many local designers and artisans show their wares at the stalls in this holiday market, where you'll find a selection of wonderful items "made in St Barth" to take home as gifts or souvenirs of your trip.
You can also taste local specialties that highlight the culinary traditions of Saint Barth.
Kids will have the chance to meet Santa Claus when he visits the dock on the afternoon of December 19 with lots of holiday activities for them as well .
Ho, ho, ho!
