A Tobago trip is not complete without a visit to Pigeon Point Heritage Park.
Despite attracting less visitors than Tobago’s western beaches, Englishman’s Bay is regarded as one of the island’s most picturesque. The water is deep blue and lustrous. Near the shore you can see a wide variety of stunning fishes. Enjoy a perfect day of snorkeling, swimming and fishing. The beach is shaped like a typical crescent, surrounded by the vibrant green forests dropping from Tobago’s Main Ridge. A small restaurant/souvenir shop, and a bathroom are available. Be prepared to have the time of your life.
Stunning beach, turquoise water and a sand bottom that slopes off abruptly along the coast, Castara Bay is a wonder. A small fishing village on the island’s Leeward side and a vantage point just above, offers one of the most spectacular vistas Tobago has to offer. The beach is sheltered by the rainforest with lots of palm and coconut trees, and the clean and warm seas are ideal for snorkeling, particularly off the northern coast. Fishing boats all lined up create a beautiful portrait. The fishermen are always friendly as they bring in their nets to the shore.
Tobago’s busiest and one of its most popular beaches. Witness the beauty of the Caribbean by visiting Store Bay. Enjoy some delicious curry crab and dumplings, local snacks like red mango, fudge, and Benet sticks, and local arts and crafts. Experience a Glass Bottom boat tour and witness the stunnning Buccoo Reef and Nylon Pool. Experiment with snorkeling. Observe fishes that occasionally swim close to the shore. Enjoy sunbathing. Rent beach chairs and umbrellas from eager locals. Relax and rewind. View the breathtaking sunset at Store Bay.
When visiting Tobago, you must travel to Pirate’s Bay, a secluded beach located in Tobago’s northern region. It’s one of Tobago’s farthest beaches from the airport, but due to the island’s size, it’s only an hour and a half drive away. The beach is accessible by boat, and for nature lovers, you can drive to a point, then take what appears to be never-ending steps downhill, but you will be stunned by the awesome view, beautiful atmosphere, gleaming pink sand and crystal clear blue waters. It’s well worth the journey. The water is also shallow near the coast, so prepare to swim and have fun. You can also go snorkeling and see some of the most beautiful fishes.
