You could sit on the soft sand and imagine sailing ships of the past anchoring out in the bay before the crew came ashore for supplies. An amazing place and in the middle of the day there were only four others there.. There is a café but I wasn't sure if it was open plus some of the locals we... More

In Most places in the world with a beach setting like this you would find some huge hotel ruining it . This is like a real-life Bounty advert - and like nearly of Tobago it's free for the public, One of my favourite beaches on the planet

I visited the Bay on 2 occasions. It was highly rated so are expectations were set relatively high... We were not disappointed. There is parking onsite, and a restaurant serving up local cuisine (including rotis!). Once you walk up to the Bay the setting is spectacular. To the left, the soft sand is lined with beautiful, tall, healthy palm trees,... More

Words cannot describe how beautiful this beach is. Wish I could have stayed on this beach. We were lucky to get a boat from Castara to drop off us off to visit here one day for an hour.

OK place but snorkelling nowhere near as good as in Castara Bay.Not many fish and the coral was not as vividly alive as in Castara.

We had read some mixed reviews about Englishman's bay. We were the first people at the bay and it was wonderful having the whole place to ourselves. Gradually more people arrived, however it was not overcrowded and still retained that feel of paradise. The little café served good food at a reasonable price. In fact it was probably one of... More

This beach is no longer the best keep secret after all. It's been featured by so many travel guide books and it's beginning to get crowded here too. The ocean is calm and you barely encountered current when swimming. That's because the beach bordered between two shorelines like U form blocking the winds from both directions. Beware its deep during... More

One of the most beautiful beaches in Tobago, you feel as if you were on a deserted island that you never want to leave. The soft sands backed by swaying palms hemmed in by a deep cove make this picture post card perfect. Although the restaurant there is often closed, it's a great place to get back to nature. The...

It is just so serene and peaceful here!... While storebay and Pigeon point are nice places, this one is little more secluded and much more beautiful!... not much to do here but pack a picnic bag and some beer, you will never leave this place!..
