This is a main shopping area but it closes early and is more of a tourist viewing opportunity then hardcore shopping. I still recommend an hour or so of looking.

This place closes really early in the evening (I believe 6pm), so it's not a great place to go later in the day. They are missing out on a lot of $$ to be made by those visiting the island and the cruise ships. It's...More

This is one of the main shopping plazas. There is a huge range of stores from extremely expensive to your typical tourist places. Good variety for everyone in the family to find something they like.

Across the street from the cruise ship pier, so mainly you will find cheap souvenirs. However there is a Swatch shop and Cariloha bamboo products. At least two touristy restaurants with folks consuming too much high-priced alcohol. Go to the second floor, find a bench...More

The Royal Plaza has several budget friendly and mid-range shopping options. Access to many souvenir type items here. Great location, very close to cruise port.

Directly across he street from the mall and little shacks with vendors with good deals. Some vendors will have the same thing but different prices so make sure to look around first. Also across the side street there is a... More

Not really sure - most places seem to open around 10:00 am and close between 5 and 8 pm. If there is a cruise ship in port they will be open as long as people are still in town. Many stores close to observe Jewish holidays... More

We usually shop there at 10 am when most of the shops are open. I believe the shops close at 5:00 or 5:30 but may remain open longer when a ship is not due to leave until later in the evening. However Mondays are slow... More
