Anse du Colombier

Some portions of the trail were steps carved into the rock
This anchorage was more to our style than downtown Gustavia. Part of the St. Bart’s park system, this bay had free moorings, which apparently have really helped the seagrass beds recover from too much anchoring, though lots of boats did come in and anchor, as it was the weekend. Several megayachts were anchored well out, the crew dinghying in to set up awnings for their guests. Many people also walked over from hotels in neighboring bays. We walked the trail in the opposite direction, across the peninsula, past La Petit Anse, a rocky little bay, to Anse des Flamands, which had a nice white-sand beach.  A nice, cool swim was in store after the hot walk back!
