Tourist goods
Dec 2019
A short walk from the cruise terminal gets you to the craft's alive village, just a collection of huts with locals selling touristy type goods, some crafts and typical Caribbean clothing, shirts, tops, dresses etc.
Nothing particularly special that you dont find on any other island, but if thats your thing then worth a visit, always nice to help the local economy, you may just find something you want!.9

Close To Ship But Not Exceptional
Aug 2019
Nore is it very interesting. You can walk to this little shopping area quite easy. Walk thru the Tortola Pier Park to the end and then bear left. This is about a 20 minute walk from your ship. Just the normal stuff for sale. It is a safe area and decent looking. The local folks are trying their best to make a living which is a tough go.

Just like any tourist market

There is no real need to visit here unless you are desperate to buy the same sort of tourist gifts which are available all over the Caribbean. The setting on the harbour is pleasant enough.

hardly worth getting off the ship for...
Jan 2019 • Friends
Stopped on Tortola as a stop on a cruise and was sadly disappointed. On the port was about a block of over priced stores, mostly jewelry, and very little else. Walked to road Town with other people from the cruise ships in port trying to find the craft village which for some reason was very poorly marked in regards to signs to find it. Once we found it there were about ten or fifteen small hut like stores that sold all the same things as the next. To be fair, this area is still seeing the rebuilding from hurricanes and the constant pounding of jack hammers kind of ruined the beautiful views of the ocean from this point. On the way back to the ship there was a second floor martini bar and cigar lounge, can't remember it's name that we stopped at which had free wifi that we did spent most of the time at and had great drinks and an outdoor seating area facing a bay. Probably should have taken a taxi to one of the beaches but didn't know what to expect there but was later told by others they were worth the trip.

Plenty of the same
Dec 2018 • Couples
Had a walk along roadtown main road, visited many of the shops/stalls, much of a muchness, clothing, crafts, touristy goods, just above average price for shirts etc.

Trying to get money in after being hit by hurricane,maybe if prices slightly reduced would get more custom.
A lot cleaner than last time we visited

Damp and Dismal

Got to Tortola, on a rainy day, and wasn't inspired at all, so just went for a stroll along the main road were we came to a small multi coloured group of huts selling all sorts of touristy items like, hats, multi coloured dresses for the ladies, your normal tacky souvenirs like fridge magnets and dolls and local crafts etc.
Saw plenty of local bird life along the road, as can be seen on the photos If the weather had been a bit nicer would have gone further afield, maybe next time.
Having said that the weather improved as we went back to the ship.

Nothing super exciting.
Jan 2017 • Solo
This crafts market has some locally made items, but a lot looked generic like what you see in other Caribbean markets, so I think it's imported stuff, much of it anyway. If you want a souvenir then it's an option, but not a great one.

Chintzy souvenirs

It is walking distance from the ship and is a colorful collection of huts. Mostly sells touristy items such as magnets, shot glasses, dolls, straw hats and some arts and crafts.

Last refuge of the desperate?
Jan 2017 • Family
We were in town on a day when the 'government' had shut all of the beaches due to dangerous conditions and so, left to wander town, we came across these markets. Limited offerings of no discernibly local products, it was a struggle to find any souvenirs of any interest (we couldn't).
