The Carenage,in St. George's on Grenada, is a horseshoe shaped harbor that winds around the back side of a small peninsula jutting into St. George's Bay on the southwest side of Grenada. At the elevated entrance to the inlet containing the Carenage is the historical Fort George, which was built by the French in 1705 and later added onto by... More

Pretty waterfront with a museum, shops markets and bars/restaurants within walking distance and right on the seafront. Just around the corner is Fort Frederick. It does get hot, but the water looks fine and the beer is col!

We have been to the Carenage many many times... there is much to see and a lot of shops to pick up groceries, or stop for a Roti.... The best Roti shop is right down there, cannot remember the name of it, just look for the orange store front. Grenada is one of the friendliest Islands in the Caribbean chain.

I sort of expected harbour side restaurants and cafés rather than a working harbour and a (small) container port. It has a couple of restaurants with balconies but mostly it's a working dockside. Go up to the far end below the Fort George past the government buildings and try the crabback at BB's restaurant/ bar - marvellous!

Much fun! Spicemas was excellent. Great music, dancing and meeting friends from abroad. Street food was appetizing. A wonderful time was had in Grenada.

It's not perfect, you can see beer bottles on the bottom of the sea, but the clown fish don't seem to mind, there is very little shade, so wear a hat. Walk round to the Nutmeg Restaurant and try a Roti, they are cheap, filing and delicious.

all visitors should visit the carenage - one of the busiest areas on this small island. this area is mostly for walking around, taking pictures and grabbing a bite. the area around is hilly and you can still see effects of hurricane ivan on many of the buildings. From the carenage you can also walk to Bruce Street Mall (lots... More

We have been coming to Grenada for 20 years and it was always nice to take a walk around the Carenage, but its gone downhill as most of the shops are closed and they have moved to the mall by the port which is a shame. So it kind of looks like most of our high streets in the UK!... More

The Carenage is a very picturesque area. All visitors to Grenada should visit this area. There is a marina here with a wide variety of boats. This area is also always very busy. It lies on the outskirt of the downtown area and makes a fantastic backdrop for photographs. The sunsets here are also very spectacular.
