Trinidad & Tobago: Tobago Beaches

[Visited: July 2001]

Tobago is the small sister island of the country, and at least as far as beaches are concerned, the more beautiful one. Beaches are divided in Caribbean and Atlantic ones, and are nearly all extremely attractive - the tropical paradise beach that everyone imagines. White or yellow soft sand, quiet, waving palm trees, translucent turquiose waters, and all of this comes in almost private beaches.

We tried various beaches all around the island and discovered that each one of them had their own advantages. The beach at Englishman's Bay, for instance, was almost completely deserted, protected against the open sea by a narrow bay. Pigeon Point, where one has to pay entrance fee, was the most crowded, least romantic, but still most famous beach. Pirate Bay, near charming Charlotteville in the north, is a small beach, with the best snorkelling close by.

Since distances in Tobago are so small, it is also easy to combine a visit to one of the beaches with other activities. We several times did two dives in the morning and early afternoon, and spent some more hours on the beach afterwards. Or visited the island of Little Tobago or the Forest Reserve, after which we relaxed on another strip of sand. It seemed quite unbelievable that such quiet, archetypal tropical beaches were so readily available everywhere.
