“classic structure while shopping”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

main street is very busy when cruise ships are at port. Full of typical diamonds, watches and t shirt shops; The buildings are old and make for an excellent Caribbean feel. The street signs are in Danish as well and add to the neat experience.

“Jewelry, Jewelry, and More Jewelry”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

Shopping options are jewelry, jewelry, and more jewelry. If you're interested in purchasing jewelry or watches you'll be in heaven!

Beware of who you’re purchasing from and know WHAT you’re buying. Thank god we had a reputable jeweler from Chicago with us to point out those locations that were trying to pull one over on us on material and price. Just know what you’re getting before you drop large dollars.

One of the things that started really rubbing me the wrong way was the non-stop soliciting on the streets. It was every 10 feet that someone was telling us "I love your bracelet; now let me show you what I have in my store down the street." If you said no thank you, they would try to give you a guilt trip.

“beware of some jewelries!”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

The place is nice to walk and shop jewels. but beware, some of the places don't sell exactly what they are saying. If you are planning to buy some expensive items, consider visiting nice and reputable jewelries.. always you will have good prices and you will save the taxes!
remember, If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is....

“Shopping”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

No pretense about it just shop after shop, mainly jewelleryjunction, watches and liquor. There is a large tablecloth shop as well. Need to know your prices and you will then likely get good value. This is not the lace if you do not like to shop. Shop assistants are very helpful. There are a few scattered restaurants.
