Great history about this area although sadly most of the historical buildings have been demolished - which seems to be a national pastime in Barbados sadly - but there is plenty to sit and watch....boats, locals, tourists. Worth an hour and a beer or so..
If you want a break from the beach, Bridgetown's Careenage is a pleasant place to spend a few hours. Lots of interesting buildings, a few touristy shops and a couple of bars/restaurants to sit and watch the world go by while you enjoy a fresh Tuna salad and a glass of wine.
Our first outing to Bridgetown and we were thirsty, hungry and hot. They fed us, and we ordered a bucket of Pola Beers for $10 Barbadian Dollars and some food. My Shrimp Wrap was really good. We were cooled down and our tummies were full when we left.
Visit the Screw docks, I think the only one left in the West Indies. The Careenage has seen a lot of changes. The new Swing Bridge, the Arch and more historical landmarks to see in and around Bridgetown. Even the oldest Lord Nelson Statute to see.
Restaurants are quite expensive at the hotel, but this pub is reasonable. Ship and sea decor, well dressed staff and decent pub food. I had the sliders which were good quality and very tasty. My husband had the buffalo wings, but he said they just had bbq sauce on them (no heat).

The Careenage is right in the heart of downtown Barbados. Worth the trip so plan to spend the morning or afternoon walking around Bridgetown. There are several restaurants across the drawbridge to grab a local style meal or have a tropical drink.
We walked along the boardwalk and whilst watching the big catamarans set sail with day trippers was interesting, at the end of the pier, there was a historic site sitting behind a small pretty bar at the pier head ( which was why we popped in) was this great naval historic relic and a small museum accessed behind the bar.... 更多
You can walk along both sides of the Careenage, visit the bars, restaurants and see the sights imagining how it once was key to Bridgetown's economy....warehouses, bars and etc. Or, even better, see it from the water. We did on a boat tour from G. See him at the dive shop near the Radisson Aquatica/Barbados Cruising C. We entered the... 更多
