Not in the main tourist area of Crown Point, this is along the Caribbean Sea side of Tobago, on the northern coast. A great stop off on a road trip to Charlotteville, mainly because it's quiet and also a working beach with fishermen often seen pulling in their seine. Definitely worth a visit.

The bay is great for quiet sun bathing. There is a restaurant on site and a craft shop. The bay is off the north side road on the way to the rainforrest. The drive is quiet and the air is fresh a sheer delight to observe mother nature is all her majesty.

Go to this place! It is virtually uninhabited and private. You will find a sandy beach with beautiful palm trees. It is about 4 km from Castara.

The beach in one word is... Stunning!!! A bit of a drive from wherever your are staying but worth it. The colour of the water, the lizards, the crabs, the exotic birds. A nice small beach in a bay, the same bay the Curosoe's landed in btw. It has a great restaurant serving local cuisine, roti, oxtail, shrimp, chicken, goat... More

Getting there was an experience but once there, it was postcard perfect. I am so glad we made the effort - we had no regrets once there, except that it rained in the end. A must for anyone visiting Tobago. Definitely!

I have been to Englishman's Bay 3 times now and have had a great time on every visit. Yes, it is secluded, but that is it's beauty. The beach is a beautiful sweeping curve of glorious golden sand and the water is really clear with amazing snorkelling. I would say you need to be quite a good swimmer though. One... More

A very beautiful bay. Not crowded at all since it is a bit of a drive from the main area of Crown Point. Bathing here is very dangerous I would say since there is a sudden drop about 4 feet in. You go from having water at your knees to water at your neck in one step. So be very... More

From crown point the driving experienced was great, you must be able and ready to drive through the winding and narrow roads to get to Englishman bay. The beach is not I expected, to many rocks and a deep drop.

Absolutely stunning. Stopped by on a tour around the island and it was gorgeous. Beautiful clear waters and the views from the top on the drive in are amazing.

Palm swept beach with very few tourists. Perfect lunch shack for a roti/fish/beer snack. Could stay here all week.
