|About these ratings|
During the day, St. Barts' capital city is abuzz. Traditional sightseeing is limited; most just take to a street like Quai de la République for a stroll or to shop. And speaking of shopping -- everything from real-life Gaultier to knock-off Gucci can be found inside the hallowed stores of Gustavia. At night, the island's "nightlife" takes over. Don't be surprised to bump into long-time snowbirds like Mick Jagger or Jimmy Buffet if you decide to paint the town. They've been known to frequent popular spots like Le Select (a laid-back bar good for burgers and beer) and Yacht Club (a slightly more formal hangout for cocktails and dancing).
