Took my kids here to surf, very affordable price for the afternoon, be careful of the coral and the waves are on shallow water and if your fall off you might get scraped. Ok beach but Pigeon Point is a way better beach.

Nice to snorkel and swim, little place to lie in the sun. Must get there early morning or late in the evening.

Love the swimming but enjoy bathing on the quiet side of the beach where things appear to be a dollar dearer!! I think it's managed by a local hotel, but the sea is less Stoney and easier to swim. Facilities are great with the option of buying lunch from a local store/cafe. Clean too!

We went here a few times, but did not see many different fish when snorkeling. We saw lots of little ones (all the same kind). We should try again before we leave. There are 2 sections of the beach, and one has some huts at the roadside where you can buy a wonderful roti. Go early so they are not... More

A nice beach with some shade and chairs for hire. A bit rocky as you step into water and it is steep but lovely for floating and chatting. One end of the bay is for surfing but not the whole bay.

The Mt. Irvine Bay (by the hotel & not the beach facility) was the most exquisite of all the beaches I visited in Tobago. The kids were able to play unrestricted on the water's edge because there were no waves or strong currents. Even the non-swimmer adults were able to thoroughly enjoy soaking up to their necks in crystal clear... More

For the first time in quite a while I was able to relax & just indulge in the cool water, backed by warm rhythmic tunes in the back ground. I've learnt that it's little things like these in life that makes such a huge difference. This beach is definitely a winner in my books.

This reef area was absolutely amazing for snorkeling. No tour guide required. We had our own snorkels so we drove right up and jumped in. The reef starts immediately at the shore. It is pretty shallow very far out with plenty to see. We went on a Saturday in June and there were only a few other families. It was... More
