Beautiful beach all to yourself

No kiosks or bars, take everything you need for the day, perfect for us but not for those that want to dine out

Not having any lodging lined up, my husband and I showed up in Castera and were so happy to find the Naturalist Beach Resort had a reasonable room available, and practically on the beach. We loved the location, and just so happened to be there on a night where they do their bonfire dinner on the beach. We had a... More

A long and winding road, take your time, but when you arrive, the beach, the people, Cascreole Restaurant upstairs by Ms. Debbie, if you go on a Saturday, you may be lucky to get bread from the dirt oven or fish broth from Daddy Ben, just relax and enjoy the pampering because that's what you are going to get.

I was there around Lion Fish derby season and the harvest festival. Beautiful scenery. Went scuba diving there and saw sea turtles, mantis shrimp, and southern sting rays (species most common in Tobago). I would definitely take the trip and go.

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.
