  • This is the shopping area nearest the cruise ship docking. There are some lovely shops including local designer made womens' clothing, art, places to eat and the Australian ice cream shop.  more »
  • We really enjoyed walking along here, as the place is nicely preserved. The restaurants here were pretty decent!  more »
  • The city of St. John is very simple, as well as your heart. The port of unloading ships Redcliffe Quay is a place more sex, cute, and leisure for tourists returning from Caribbean beaches to get back on the ship. In the surroundings there are some shops. There are also vans that take passengers to the nearby beaches. I advise using this type of transport. The other, unofficial, are not so sure. Had experience getting official transport of the Redcliffe Quay and the unofficial. So, I had the opportunity to do the comparison.

  • Street vendors can be a bit pushy. Wi-Fi access is pretty limited, and when it's available, it's overpriced and capped at less than an hour
  • C&C wine bar with the children for lunch! Now that was divine! Service was a little slow but the food was worth the wait!!
  • Quieter than the other section. Nice views and some small shops.
  • Cute shops and boutiques, a good pizza place, coffee and ice cream parlor, close to where the the big boats berth.
  • Convenient shopping complex
