Loved the closeness to the beach, lifeguards are present, showering room for $1.00 TT. covered beach sittings, rental beach chairs rental child swing, American food within the small village about $50.00TT (8.00 US) freshly cooked. Josh made us feel welcome. Since I have climbing issues with my leg perhaps a ground floor is recommended. ON departure's date I paid with... More

This is well worth the drive. It is winding with steep drop offs but fantastic views. Castara is a fishing village on west coast of Tobago and has really grown. The main beach is OK with restaurants, shop and one of the few remaining clay bread ovens in Tobago. They sell every Saturday. I suggest you drive to the smaller... More

Visited Castara village in April and I'm missing it. A beautiful fishing village with around 700 people no big hotels and guest houses and rooms scattered throughout the village. A dozen or so bars and restaurants. They share out the party nights between them. The villagers are really friendly and helpful and laid back. It's not 5 star and there... More

Really beautiful village with amazingly friendly and accommodating people. It's a bit out of the way, which makes it a great place if you want peace and quiet and some great relax time. It's got great food, but be warned, the bank machine (there is only one) does not always have money in it. Be prepared to drive to an... More

Worth the bumpy drive as this is a very pretty fishing village which boasts its own small, secluded beach. Friendly people and some nice restaurants etc. Need a car if you stay here to get around, avoid driving at night as gets very dark and lots of steep drops to the side of the road.

This is a nice village where you can quickly become part of the pulse of life. Whether that is popping out for breakfast, going shopping, or meeting the fisherman to get the day's catch. Tourists are accepted here and tourism is currently low key. The one issue is that this little village has something of a rubbish problem. The beach... More

Compared to other Caribbean beaches (Parlatuvier and Englishman's Bay) Castrara is quite busy, with building work in April this year, plus a busy little market and an average beach restaurant.

Beautiful beach, good for snorkeling , can see stingray's swimming along the beach edge if lucky. Sea can get rough tricky to get in and out of the water at times.

It felt like living within the local community for a couple of weeks. The waves were lively but fun, the beach was clean and we watched the fishermen daily. We often saw wildlife around the beach. Loved it
