This small Caribbean island has rather dry climate and no rivers. It has beautiful landscape and numerous red roofed houses, often from colonial times.

There are not too many landmarks. Interesting is Gustavia - historical port town in beautiful natural setting, surrounding small bay. Three forts (rebuilt or in ruins now) guard Gustavia, there are also some historical churches from the 19th century.
