Carenage is a community in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. It is located in northwestern Trinidad, and is administered by the Diego Martin Regional Corporation. Located close to Chaguaramas, it is more of a residential area than a commercial or industrial locale.

The name is derived from the practice of "careening" (i.e., beaching) sailing vessels for maintenance, which had been done in the area for many years.[1]
