While the anchorage area is ample, the harbour is not particularly inviting
- do not leave your boat unattended at anchorage here.
- Do not go to town in bathing suits or skimpy clothing.
Ashore: supermarkets are good and provisioning for foodstuffs as well as hardware is excellent. There is a Saturday Market in Kingstown where fresh fruits and vegetables; many restaurants to choose from; most offering local fare and fresh fish.
Don't miss: the Botanical Gardens founded in the 1700s said to be the oldest in the Western Hemisphere. The grounds are extensive and lush, and the admission and guides inexpensive. There is an aviary as well and the birds are as colourful as you might expect. Even if you are not a gardener, the trip and the tour are well worth it.
