Beautiful and quiet

Lovely beach and OK snorkelling on the fringing reefs. Restaurant and souvenir shop is actually OK. Some muggings have happened here (late in the day I imagine) so don't go alone.

This bay lives up to what I had heard about and more. We were the only people on the beach which was clean and inviting. Walked from one end to the other and went swimming. Want to go back as was really chilled setting.

If you want a beach that is not over populated, has great views and beautiful sand then I reccomend english mans bay. We went on a Tuesday afternoon and where probably 1 of 3 over groups on the beach. The stretch of sand is very pretty lined with coconut trees. The water was quite warm, however the waves a bit...

Undoutedly the most beautiful beach, out of many beautiful beaches on Tobago. Secluded, but never empty,quiet, with green headlands framing the enclosed bay. Snorkelling and good swimming. Eula's cafe/restaurant serves delicious local dishes at very local prices, right over the beach. No othe facilities.

The reason it is deserted and paradisiacal is because there are no facilities.... nothing. so unless you want to get sunburnt, I recommend a short visit.

This is without a doubt the best beach on the island and complete paradise. It is easily accessible of the main "highway". Great beach!

We had a great lunch at the small restaurant near the parking lot, rented affordable beech lounge chairs and spent almost an entire day enjoying the beautiful water. The waves were a bit rough the day we visited, but... More
