Shopping in George Town

Downtown George Town is where you will find most of the high end jewellery shops as well as a few interesting and unique stores where you can find gifts to take home with you. George Town is quietest on non-cruise ship days (Fridays, Saturdays and Mondays). All downtown shops are closed on Sundays.

Souvenirs, Art Galleries & Locally Made Collectables

  • The Craft Market located on the waterfront (next to Dairy Queen), is a great place to watch local artisans at work and to pick up a unique gift or even a collector’s item. Choose from one of a kind woodcarvings and paintings, handmade products such as conch and caymanite, plus local jellies, jams, pickles and snacks. You can even have your hair braided! Open on days when cruise ships are in port.
  • Artifacts is a treasure trove of antique jewellery, maps, prints, china, shipwreck treasures and more. It's the perfect place to pick up a unique gift.
