Nice area to people watch, or to get some shade or shelter from the rain, refreshments are available at various placesgood to watch the day trippers depart their trips on the catamarans.

This was our fourth visit to Barbados, and this time were only there for a day as a cruise line stop so we wanted to limit the amount of driving we had to do. We spent the entire afternoon at the Careenage, first choosing a restaurant for lunch outdoors overlooking the water, then strolling around the harbour looking at the boats and businesses, and finally settling down at a beach so the children could swim. If you only have one day in Barbados this is a great way to pack in a wide variety of sights and experiences.

The Careenage is not big. It has a few shops around but mostly store fronts for the charter boats. It's a nice place to walk around a little and take a few snaps. I don't understand some of the other comments about the cruise ships. They don't dock anywhere near here.

The Careenage is a blast from the past. It runs along past the Parliament, Museum and Heroes Square and also has a really nice boardwalk. The boats and catamarans come in and out to sea regularly throughout the day. The Parliament is around 370 years old which is the third oldest in the Commonwealth. We walked along and were amazed at the history in this area - think back to old times when they brought the ships for repair to holes in their hulls and CAREENED them by turning then on their sides to repair before returning to the UK.
We had a drink in the Bridge Pub overlooking both the Careenage and Parliament.

Amazing Dive operation that respects the sea and it's life!! Smaller boat than some operations, but fewer divers makes for a more enjoyable dive. Professional all the way!! Keep up the great work Andrew and Mikey!!

The ideal place to quietly sit and watch the world go by. Restaurants set up along this area remind me of those in Europe where you can just sit back relax have a great meal and chat with friends and take in a wonderful view of Barbados' capital
