Shopping in Basseterre

Whether it is because it is where cruisers arrive and depart from, because of the variety, or perhaps because of the prices, Port Zante is the center of tourist shopping in Basseterre.  It is home to the town's major mall which houses everything from cheap souvenir shops to high-end jewelers.  Of course, there are plenty of places throughout town where you can find both and everything in between as well.

As you're shopping in Basseterre, be on the look out for leather goods, expensive French fragrances, china, and electronics.  This is where you'll find the best deals, but you won't want to overlook the beauty and unique nature of the local crafts either.
