We've been coming here for yrs but tere is always a temptation to buy something pricey. If your in the market for outrageously expensive jewelry and watches, this is for you, A very few restaurants but high priced lixury items abound. There are a few less expensive items and everything is negotiable. Everything.

Front street is THE street on the island. Just a few meters from the boardwalk, it has a large variety of stores, in particular beachwear and jewels. It is very busy every day with people coming from the cruise ships. If you are coming by car rather than from the ships, do not try to park there. Use the free parking lots along the pond, three blocks from Front street.

Great atmosphere

Front Street is a "fun" kind of chaos during the day. The folks from the cruise ships are all out shopping, the street is bustling with people and it's an overall fun time to check out the area with a drink in hand. Tons of jewelry shops, and souvenir and other shops.
