Good place to walk around

Better place for shopping than Taj Mahal. Nicer shops and friendly shopkeepers. Has coffee and ice cream and several good restaurants. Touristy but not obnoxious.

We stayed at the Fisherman's Point across the street and this was nice to have all the shops, restaurants and even a movie theater right next door. Restaurants and beach access and views and you can see the Crews ships come in and out. Might be a little sketchy at night with Ocean's 11-night club. I was very uncomfortable with... More

It was nighttime and some of the shops were closed, but it was still a good opportunity to walk through and see what all was available.

A group of local Jamaican entrepreneurs arranged to meet a group of women business owners, speakers and life coaches who were arriving via a cruise ship. We agreed to meet at Island Village. It was just a short walk for them from the pier. We gathered on the large lawn for our awards presentation. The grounds are well kept and... More

This place is mainly geared up for cruise ship passengers and other tourists. Usual array of touristy shops and eateries as well as a cinema, Oceans Eleven Club and Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville. Prices are cheaper here than at the other shopping plazas that the tour drivers will want to take you too. ( For a commission from the thieving store... More

Perfect for anyone wanting to drink or spend lots of money on souvenirs. There is a lot of nice stuff to see for anyone wanting to learn about Jamaican history and culture, but all of that can be seen in 30-60 minutes. We really shopped around among the street vendors and found some really good deals on wood carvings. Once... More

Nice open space , that often wakens up in the evening, with young people. Very safe and a few nice places to have a snack or enjoy Margueritaville if you want something lively
