Gustavia is the main town of the island of Saint Barthelemy, community overseas French West Indies.
Gustavia is located on the western coast of St. Barts. The town is built around the port of Gustavia, a natural inlet opening on the harbor of Gustavia.
During the French colonization of Saint Bartholomew, from the mid-seventeenth century, the site of Gustavia was named “The Shroud”, probably because of the shelter it provides to allow careening boats.
