Shopping in Road Town

Photo credit: © Paula Funnell

Shopping in Road Town centers on Main Street where visitors will find a nice mixture of duty free luxury goods and local arts and crafts.  This town is not considered a top shopping destination, however, tourists are sure to be pleased with the availability and variety of products that tend to be favored in the Caribbean.

As mentioned, Main Street is the main shopping area, but you'll also be able to find more goods in areas known as the Plaza and the Corner.  These last two areas are better to hit up if you're looking for those locally hand crafted items, while Main Street is the best spot for deals on imported items.  Although each shop sets its own hours, expect to see them open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday. 

Specialty Shops

One of the more popular speciality shops in the area is Blue Water Divers. They're located in Nanny Cay, 1.9 mi. South West of central Road Town. The daily dives are decided with the help of the divers themselves, taking into account skill level and the sites that participants are yearning to see. If you're looking for something specific, try calling them at (284) 494-2847.

Another good option is We Be Divin, which is located two miles (three kilometers) to the northeast of Blue Water Divers. The shop offers a wide range of services. Not only do they sell snorkeling, scuba, and beach gear, but they offer a collection of scuba diving education and PADI certification services, and private dive trips with less than six guests per boat.
