Introducing St George's

St George’s ticks all the boxes for a small island capital: overlooked by the requisite quota of handsome old buildings, the Carenage harbor is one of the prettiest in the Caribbean. Above the water, a jumble of streets cling to the hill that splits the city in two, lined by a picturesque mishmash of colorful post-hurricane rooftops, crumbling warehouses, grand old stone churches and an imposing fort. The main commercial centre is on the other side of the hill, with the modern Esplanade shopping mall at the water’s edge along the main road, Bruce St. South of the Carenage, on its way to the resorts at Grand Anse, the road sweeps around the Lagoon, where a forest of masts and megayacht hulls mark the upmarket Port Louis marina.
