No other caribbean Island boosts a carenage as picturesque and unqiue as this! The carnage is littered with offices of local businesses restaurants, residences, parked cars and a variety of anchored boats - fishing trawlers, cargo ships, recreational catamarans e.t.c.

This was our 1st time in Grenada and we did not know what to expect in St. George - there is some shopping along the Carenage and some restaurants, however, not as much for sightseeing as we expected. People in grenada and St. George are very friendly - probably the friendliest people we have come across in all our travels!

Like walking around back in the 1700-1800s. Fort George overlooks the Carenage. the bay is beatiful and the architecture is 100's of years old !

Beautiful from a distance but not what we had expected, interesting place to visit but do not expect a Mediterranean style harbour with lots of pretty shops, cafes & bustle. we went in the evening but it is a working harbour, perhaps this was not the best time to visit but we went to loads of other places that were much nicer.

They call it 'liming' - just idling around watching life pass by! Take a stroll from the Sendall Tunnel, passed BB's Crabback and the Nutmeg Restaurants (the food mall next door is the cheapest place to buy Grenada chocolate). Turn the corner towards the German food restaurant and you come to the statue of 'Christ of the Deep', donated to the island by the Costa Cruise company in gratitude for their help and friendliness of the islanders when the cruise liner 'Bianca C' sank off the island in 1961.

Carry on passed the fire station and at the end of the waterside walk you'll find the official tourist info office tucked away down a side turning. A 10-15 stroll back, past the local shops and you will have earned a cool beer at the Nutmeg or at BB's!

The Carenage is a working harbour so don't expect a manicured and immaculate setting geared up for tourists. The harbour is populated with fishing boats, inter-island cargo vessels and catamarans (power and sail) that run whale watching cruises and 'party' boats.

It's as good a place as any to absorb the local sights and sounds.
