This docking was on a Sunday so we were told that the French side of the Island was effectively "shut". But the Dutch side was very interesting. Found an excellent Duty Free shop for booze and tobacco (turn left from the main beach jetty and about 300/400 metres along the main drag).
Entertaining tour up steep inclines with breathtaking views. Stop at Caribbean style beach hotel. Pussers Landing a delightful marina with shopping. Unfortunately experiencing a power cut while we were there.
