“Best to see on foot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

Take a local bus into the main terminal in St. George's by the mall and walk around downtown. You can follow the streets up to one of the forts for a better view. Easier and better to see on foot.

“Hustle & Bustle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

The :)Christ of the Deep statue watches over the lagoon, while local boats go about their business: fishing, tours, water taxis, and other daily visitors buzz about. Surrounded by some nice restaurants & shopping

“Beautiful St Georges Carenage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Love the Carenage, it has been restored to better than before the hurricane Ivan in 2004! We boarded the S/V Mandalay at the dock. The little vendor shops have moved into the building next to the dock and Visitor Center. This is so beautiful at night!

This could be such a beautiful place. They really need to invest a little bit into this area.

“Dissapointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

Reading some of the other reviews I think I must have visited a different Carenage.

It was a collection of scruffy buildings (derelict would be a better description for some) around the harbour. We didn't find any restaurants which looked worthy of a visit and were constantly harrassed by locals who wanted to be our guide.

The walk to the spice market was even worse with lots of people hanging around shop doorways looking strangely at anyone who was a tourist. Couldn't get out of St George fast enough.

Not what we had expected.
