Walk into town from cruise port?


Recommended Posts

None of the excursions listed for this port are really grabbing us - it it possible to simply walk into town from the cruise ship dock, walk around town and have a nice lunch (preferably with an ocean view)?

Thanks for the response and the map, but not sure why it's an "of course" when so many port towns are not that easily walkable from the dock.... and while I'm not disabled per se, I have a tricky back which makes extensive walking challenging.

Yes, the town of Frederiksted is right off the pier.  There is an awesome place to eat called Pollys.  There are a couple tables out front to eat, and the view is spectacular.  There are also places to eat inside, and out back.  There also is a place called turtles a little ways down.  It might be a little of a walk, but the view is amazing and the food is awesome.  Deli sandwiches, but 1 is enough for 2.  On cruise ship days, there are local vendors that have awesome wares.  We were just there for 11 days, and unfortunately there was not a cruise ship, and so no vendors, but we have been there when there was.  There are a few shops, but not a lot, although the ones there are awesome.  If you take a left off the pier, there is rhythms at rainbow beach.  You can rent chairs and umbrellas, and have lunch.  Again, amazing food and the view.  You may want to take a taxi there though, as it’s a ways there.  Hope this helps.😊
