We only had 2 hours to spend on this beach. I would say it is the nicest beach I have seen on the island so far. We shared the beach with a couple of tourists, a couple of locals and some fishermen. I was so happy we found this beach. There is a small shop that sells food and souvenirs.... More

Arrived as the very first people and had this beautiful beach completely for ourselves. Did a lot of snorkeling. You have to swim out along the bayside and you will find lots of fish and squirts. Suddenly we were in a pool (many hundreds) of small fish making room for us when we dived. Had lunch in the small cafe.... More

This was one of the best beach I went to in Tobago. True definition of a Caribbean golden sandy beach. There is just one small hut that serves food and apart from that nothing. And that was the beauty of it. Definitely worth a visit even if it is a little difficult to get to.

Very nice bay. The view is amazing! From the street above you can take great pictures. A typical postcard theme. :)

This strip of primitive beach was awesome. It sloped gently to the water and into the water. It had perfect sandcastle-building sand and warm water, with gentle rolling waves and a active reef on the right side. It was quiet, underdeveloped, and mostly deserted.

I actually just drove past this beach, which seems like the most beautiful beach in Tobago, quiet and tranquil. I am very sad to hear that a hotel may be built in the vicinity, which will change its atmosphere. So go now, while it is still unspoiled.

Amazing Cove and Beach in a very quiet part of the island. Easy to miss if you are not a good map reader. Highly recommend for a day visit. beach slope is quite steep and rip currents could be dangerous if not careful.

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.
