I love this place.Everytime we drive through I look at the lovely old buildings and my mind runs away with what it used to be like.So much history.I hope the buildings stay forever.

“The waterfront scene where schooners careen”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This watery inlet in the heart of the business area now provides mooring for the tourist catamarans. Schooners used to be careened on their sides to scrape off the barnacles. A public park provides seating for visitors to enjoy the scene overlooked by government office blocks.

“Excellent stroll in town”

Opportunity to mix in with the locals, walking on the boardwalk along the Careenage, crossing the bridges and visiting the local fruit & vegetables stalls around.

“Watch the world go by.”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Like to walk along the careenage after a spot of shopping in Bridgetown, then drinks and lunch at The Waterfront - brilliant for chilling out and people watching!
