We have been enjoying the Carenage for the past 10 years. It is clean,beautiful and friendly. We have visited the government offices for business, our barrister, the garden supply, Art Fabrik, Tikal, the spice markets, tourist shops and the bank. You need comfortable shoes for walking, possibly a sun umbrella on sunny day, a bag for supplies and some water.... More

This is a great spot to see local boats come in to sell fresh fish and load/unload other cargo. The water is so clear that you can see the bottom and schools of small fish swimming around. Good people-watching spot too.

Walking around the Carenage you definitely feel that you're in the Caribbean - this is something that some other islands have lost. It's pretty, albeit still showing evidence of Hurricane Ivan. Overlooking the Carenage from a higher spot gives a very favourable impression.

Looking from the ship the town looks pretty with it's colorful homes dotting the hillsides. Once we were on land this area did not appeal to us. We were docked off the Carnegie on a 148 passenger cruise shop and maybe it was the lack of "activity" around port that turned us off. We were really looking forward to visiting... More

A wonderful place to saunter and just watch island life. The Museum is well worth a visit too and, right at the end is BB's Crabback.

Loved walking along here watching the locals at work and play, a fisherman cleaning his catch, others working on their boats, a boat being loaded with everything from toilet rolls to live chickens….and a tasty local lunch at The Nutmeg with great views over the Carenage.

We were told by several people that the Carenage in Grenada is considered the most beautiful in the Carribean. And it sure is beautiful. Has a nice spice market on Saturday, although it seems every vendor sells the exact same thing, but it's fun to walk around. Go down to the Esplanade Mall, that's where we bought several of our...

The prettiest town area we've seen in the Caribbean. Get the taxi to drop you off at the Christ of the Deep statue then walk round the Carenage and up Young Street to the museum, art shops and the tunnel through to the other side of St George's with the market, cruise terminal and shops etc., not more than 15/20...
