  • There's a lot to see by just walking a few minutes inland, so don't just stay on the wharf! While there are several good shopping choices on the pier for the start or end of your tour (look around the outside stores for sunscreen and pharmacy), veer a little further left and walk a minute more to this excellent group of nearby shops for a great selection of crafts and uncommon finds. (Gracious thanks to the Tortola Police for doing a good job of keeping us from getting mobbed by hustlers and taxi tours.)
  • There is much that could be done to improve this place. Starting with a focus on selling more authentic local products such as bazz's smoothies. Most of the other stalls all seem to be selling the same cheap clothing that you can find for better prices elsewhere. Another suggestion I would make is to always have a local band playing to help set a welcoming mood, most days it looks and feels pretty dull. I would also give the shop keepers a course in customer service, to better make the customers feel like spending their money.
