According to the locals, the name Tortola was given by Christopher Columbus and it means ”land of the turtle dove.” Tortola cruise port is 22 miles from St Thomas and it is the gateway to all British Virgins Islands. Road Town has developed in the last years but still the St. Thomas’ Charlotte Amalie is bigger shopping center.
