Cloudy St. Barth

If there is one place on Earth where clouds impress, it is in St. Barth. All around, awe inspiring cloud formations continually arise, painting the most fantastic pictures above our heads.

Easy Parking

The Art of Parking, or when our Moke fits into it’s garage head-on or sideways!

Tropical Moke

The backyards of some of St. Barth’s houses lead to tropical paradises, ideal for parking our Moke away from prying eyes.

Verticality

Thanks to its powerful engine and excellent road-holding capacity, the Moke is particularly well-suited to St. Barth’s steep roads.

The Face-Off

A friendly encounter between, to the left, the new Moke, and to the right, its older sister, the California model. When the legend encounters the future myth.

The Doll Houses

In Grand Fond, which, for many, is the island’s most isolated spot, one can discover lovely houses of yesteryear. Preserved by their owners, they bring joy to wandering tourists.

Sightseeing at Pointe Milou

We stop at Pointe Milou to take in the amazing landscape. Some of St. Barth’s most beautiful mansions are perched here, which makes perfect sense considering the numerous little islands and the magnificent ocean that surround us.

The Hills of Vitet

In Vitet, the road is so narrow that we often have to drive at a snail’s pace. You might interject that we have all the time in the world, and you would be right! So let us enjoy the setting, worthy of a Tintin comic cover.

White on White

The Art of the chameleon, or how we attempt to conceal our white Moke in this diminutive and elegant setting.

The Art of Laziness

At the end of Corossol’s pier, we wait for our friend Dominique, who soon arrives on his dinghy to take us aboard his magnificent sailboat for the day. It’s very handy as we’re too lazy to park anywhere but a few feet from the water.

The Cheval Blanc St Barth Isle de France Moke

Riding Gustavia

In Gustavia, near the wharf, we get a sense of this small Caribbean port’s history, with its boat-sheds, coveted by the world’s biggest brands who would love to turn them into luxury shops.

Race

On your marks, get set, go!

Moke Postcard

At Nureyev’s

In front of dancer Rudolf Nureyev’s house in Toiny. A short esplanade lets us gaze at the horizon before we set off towards Grand Fond by way of one of the most beautiful roads on Earth.

Be cool, Be Moke !

Just kick back in your Moke!

A Moke Cemetery

When the California Moke appeared on the island of Saint Barthélemy at the end of the 1970s, it looked like it had been specifically designed for the island! Entirely open, with a powerful engine, it so delighted the locals that after years of dedicated service, they gave it its own final resting place, the Moke Cemetery. Photo Courtesy of Jacques Zolty.
