I picked this place as it had a reef you could swim to from the beach as well as the tranquility if offered. Best place we could have picked to relax in Tobago. Lovely people and atmosphere.

Picturesque town on the Caribbean coastline. Great options for accommodations, delicious food and beach and rainforest hikes. Our home for five nights and a fantastic home base for exploring the beautiful island of Tobago!

Called here twice in our week, once by boat and once by car. Looks a really lovely place and when we go back to Tobago may well plan to stay here. Only a quick visit so hard to say more but folk who joined us on out boat trip said they loved the place. Very welcoming people and good, basic... More

There are so many bays offering something for everyone. We had gone to hopefully catch the fishermen but missed them. There are facilities nearby but couldn't see if there were loungers on the beach etc as we didn't stay too long as we were touring a number of bays that day. If you come from the south of the island... More

It is not a crowded beach, but unless it is calm, it is not good to even try to snorkel. Seems to get more rain than other places.

Charming restaurants and close to nature. Classic Fisherman's village. Some restaurants did not have alcohol, but you can buy wine and beer at the small shops near by and bring to the restaurant. Very friendly staffs all over

Authentic charm, villagers are quiet shy, but if you just speak to them eg. hello, good morning, how are you? they will become more familiar and soon wave and acknowledge you. Just bear in mind they close if they are tired, but there is always someone open. Just keep snacks in at home in case you get caught out. And... More

It's quite a small pretty beach and if you are looking for a quieter location then it's great. However, it was harder to find parking near the beach and there didn't seem to be many facilities. I personally found the locals not as approachable as the south of the island. When we were there, they were lots of dead fish... More

A beautiful local fishing village where the local people offer the warmest of welcomes. A beautiful beach from which to swim under the watchful eye of the official lifeguards,
