Skip this venue, this is a poor island with very little to offer, even if you like to scuba dive, there are much better places. See

Without the cruise center there wouldn't be much here. We were a little disappointed in how very little there was to do. The cruise center is a clean area that offered a nice variety of shops and restaurants.

This cruise centre is one of my favourites because everything is so close and convenient. There is a beach at the end of the pier with plenty of chairs to relax in and water to swim/snorkel in. There are plenty of little shops and restaurants...More

When visiting on a cruise, there is plenty of entertainment. There are all types of shop to browse. The Margaritaville is expansive. It has room to move around. The pool is quite large and inviting. Food and beverages can get expensive, but hey your on...More

Be adventurous and go beyond the cruise center. There is more to see than the Margaritaville and few shops. There are beautiful beaches, wild donkeys, Cockburn Town, and the locals to visit. The cruise center itself was clean and offered a few dining options and...More

If things are as much as they we’re when we were there early this year then your choices will be very limited, most businesses and activities have been greatly affected or closed by the storms of last year.
