The beach is beautiful, but unfortunately local people is not aware about protect this incredible landscape. You can see plastic trash around the beach and also in the small creek that converges at the beach. Folks say that the local government do not provide a service to keep it clean.

Spent 2 nights in little bay (more private of the beaches, and where you can walk right into the water and snorkel), followed by 4 nights on the main beach (much better for going for a swim, hanging out, etc.). You can also enter the water here and swim over to the smaller bay for easy access to the snorkeling/reef.... More

There are plenty of things to see and experience in and around Castara, Tobago. Errol Roach, Roachees Tours, a certified guide raised in Castara and nearby Parlatouvier, took us fishing, showed us amazing corals, the tropical forest, Scarborough and villages. Knowledgable, generous and really pleasant guy who introduces you to the friendly island (nature and history)and its people in the... More

This is a very nice little fishing village. The beach is a little busy and there is some shade at the south end. Fresh fish in the afternoon. Bar on the beach. There is a cool mud oven where you can order bread on Saturday and Wednesday. There is usually entertainment in the evenings.

We visited Castara Bay during a trip around Tobago. It is a great peaceful fishing villages tucked away beside a rather large hill. We only stayed for a few hours to have lunch and to swim. If I return to Tobago, I would defiantly look into staying in Castara.

Castara bay is more or less a fishing bay for locals, it's beautiful to look at but didn't look inviting to go in, the bay is far from capital so if you are up for driving it's worth visiting.

I visited Castara Bay for the first time this September. The water was cool and crystal clear. You did not need any goggles to see all the fish and occasional stingray swimming around your legs. The sand was so soft that it was a bit difficult at times to keep your balance. The bathroom facilities are quite clean. There is... More

No busy city stuff! Watch the men drag in fishing net. Enjoy drums at The Boat House Restaurant. Get bread from the clay ovens, or fresh produce anywhere.
