  • You can swim in the harbor by the bridge and the cannon. It is awesome! We jumped off the concrete dock, we dove off the bridge railing, we swam to the other side of the harbor, climbed the stairs, jumped off and swam back. There are stairs to help you out of the water all along the wall on both sides. And the water is beautiful, clean, clear and a great temperature. There are also public restrooms to change in. So DON'T tour St. Georges Square / Kings Square without your bathing suits. YOU WILL REGRET IT!
