As you leave the square you walk up main street, plenty of shops, some common names that you would see in England, bars and restaurants. As you walk up the main street, a good way, you come to the convent, the Governors house where you can see the changing of the guard if you get there at the right time.... More

Main Street is less than a kilometre in length, but it's packed with shops of all kind. You can pretty much buy anything you want from shops on this street. I noticed a large number of shops selling perfumes, jewellery or electronic goods. There are many restaurants, pubs and banks. You also find Marks and Spencer's on this street. As... More

A good Main Street, plenty of shops, cafes and pubs. Some good British high street names mixed with plenty of gift, jewellery and duty free shops, crowded at times, but always a good atmosphere.

Wow, this is the home of Duty free, you can indulge in some super bargains, it has a lively atmosphere in the day and try visiting in the evening the contrast is extreme !!

Great place for shopping and drinking in bars but a little expensive for eating and drinking. Very busy when cruises go there for a few hours!

Main street was a mixed bag for me, filled with tourist focused gift shops, muddled in with quaint pubs and high street shops such as Dorothy Perkins. The food also isn't great on main street very overpriced and lower in quality, so best to head down a side street for anything at all decent. All in all, I liked it.... More

Many Brish high street names plus lots of local businesses with a great selection of eateries and pubs in the mix. We purchased a gold necklace from Antonias Jewlery about half way up on the left and got service above and beyond but all establishments we visited gave good service. We were there for 1 week early October 2014 and... More

This could be one of the best shopping streets, however, I have never fully understood why the opening hours are not like those in England. You will find Monsoon, Next, bhs homestore, Mothercare, Evans, Wallis, Peacock, Dorothy Perkins, Holland & Barrett and tons of jewellery stores along Main Street, but most shops close at 2 pm on Saturday, latest 4...
