Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Sadly the whole area has been bought up by a large hotel group and is in the process of demolition. We went hoping to have a walk around the boardwalk and enjoy a drink and a spot of shopping, now there's nothing there!

Careenage is an area around the sea inlet and the small Constitution river right in the center of Bridgetown. You'll see many yachts docked along it, as well many bars.
In the vicinity are the Parliament bldgs, the Heroes square and the Chamberlain bridge.

Operating as a marina for yachts and excursion boats, as well as a meeting place for locals and tourists alike. The boardwalk skirts the north side. On the south side, a esplanade has pathways and benches for pedestrians. Picturesque and wonderful to stroll around.

Situated in the heart of Bridgetown directly in front of the parliament building is the Careenage.
Joined by the Chamberlain bridge this is an area full of bars and boats. The perfect place to take a break, rest your feet, and enjoy the view while drinking a couple of icy cold adult beverages (Banks is the beer of choice).
Sunday is the best day to take photos of Independence Square and Arch, on one side of the river, and the Hero's square fountain on the other.

TIP: The Careenage is just a 30-40 minutes stroll from the cruise terminal.

Nice to stroll around the area. It’s pretty compact so won’t take long but it’s picturesque. We were there in the morning so none of the cafes were open.

After walking from the port for about 20mins you come to this quite attractive waterfront. It has an old stationary ship which is a bar, several craft moored up with a back drop of old buildings. The chamberlain bridge crosses the waterfront at the point where you find the Independence Arch.

This should be a nice waterfront, but the water is quite polluted with trash. Locals tossing just about everything into the water. Real shame.

Very popular area on the edge of the town centre in close proximity to many local landmarks. A few bars/restaurants along the waterfront make this area a magnet for visitors.

Had a walk from the cruise terminal took about 30-40 minutes, nice walk on reaching the area we were surprised to see all the xmas trees all decorated with different countries flags, everywhere you looked they were there and also a large nativity scene.
Stopped for a beer at a local bar 'Bridge House' 3 Carib for $5
Greta views across the bridge to the Parliament Buildings on the other side of the square.
Very Christmassy,

Easy to walk around this area.
You will take in most of the sights walking along the river. Parliament for example.
Lots of boats to see and a couple of eateries or spots for a drink.
