The Careenage

Luxurious boats and yachts are docked at the Careenage (Bridgetown's marina), which makes it a picturesque place for a boardwalk during sunset. From here, you can conquer the city centre or enjoy food and drinks in one of the many restaurants and bars.

Do & See

Besides beaches and water sports, Bridgetown offers several cultural sights. In 2012, parts of the city centre and the garrison became listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Apart from that, it can be worth considering day trips to the island’s natural gems, such as caves, woods and wildlife reserves. A special occasion is the yearly Crop Over Festival at the beginning of August – when colourful masquerade bands conquer the streets like a carnival.
