One of the best parts of any glorious Caribbean vacation to Tortola villas is all the wonderful fresh fruit and fresh produce available here in the British Virgin Islands.
The best of the best is a refreshing fruit smoothie made by local resident Abdul Shabazz and his company Bazz Natural Juices. It has three juice stands on the island, after a recent expansion from the original fruit stand in the community of Johns Hole.
Shabazz says he goes through a hundred pounds each of oranges, pineapples and mangos a week, creating his signature frozen drinks and fruit smoothies so sought after on the island. Now, the stand in Road Town is so busy, Shabazz has his son running the stand at night.
Made fresh right on the site, there is nothing as refreshing on a hot Caribbean afternoon in the sun than a frozen blend of ice and tropical Caribbean flavors such as banana, pineapple, mango, orange, lemon or lime.
One of the best things to do on any visit to Tortola is to wander around Road Town, checking out the charming local shops and markets. The capital of the British Virgin Islands, this town wraps around a beautiful, clean harbor nestled at the base of surrounding hills. Fishing boats and sail boats dot the harbor, and shops line the quaint streets.
Book one of the many Tortola villas and come visit Road Town for a day in the Caribbean sunshine. Make sure to stop by Bazz Natural Juices on Waterfront Drive, about a block from the ferry terminal and the Road Town Folk Museum.
