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!..

Beautiful secluded sandy beach...wish I had better snorkeling gear. It was quiet with hardly anyone around at 4:30. Took a while to get there......but worth the drive.

I visited Englishman's Bay and had an amazing time. We had no problem finding it. It is a quiet, untouched beach. There is a restaurant and souvenir shop. You would have to bring your own snorkel gear, but it is a beautiful view. The sand is really fine, and the water is blue and warm. We spent the afternoon there,... More

My wife and I spent 4 days in Castara. While the small beaches there were decent, we had heard a lot about Englishman's Bay (roughly 3 miles away) as being one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. We decided to trek out there one morning by foot. Our hilly hike paid off as Englishman's Bay rewarded us with once... More

I loved this beach. It's a golden sand beach that was usually very quiet. The breakers crash with a beautiful sound. The snorkeling along the rocks on the right side of the bay is really really good and gets better the farther out you go toward the mouth of the bay where the reef starts. Eula's, the little beach cafe/bar... More
