There is no road way to get here. You have to walk about 15 minutes but is totally worth it... very beautiful and clear waters.. Just like any other part of Tobago..

This beach was the biggest disappointment of our trip, after all the hype it gets here. It comes not even near Englishman's Bay in terms of quality of the sand. Its hard to find shade as there is so much litter and garbage underneath the trees. Strange place, with excellent snorkeling though. Certainly not worth the effort to get there.... More

We visited pirate bay as a planned drive around the island, having read reviews on TA we parked in Charlotte ville and walked up the track which was clearly signposted to pirates bay, initially the track is ok for cars but the further along it narrows and no room for vehicles to pass, (advice : walk do not drive!) the...

We went to Charlotteville one day, but it was cloudy. We asked the way to Pirate's Bay and were told to drive up the paved road. (The one I had read about that no one should drive up!). So, if you are told by a local to drive up there, DONT. We did not, but decided to return on a... More

It's one of the least accessible beaches on the island, but well worth the bit of extra effort required to get there. A picture-perfect crescent beach, with dense tropical vegetation behind and views across the bay to the wooded mountains of the main ridge. Lovely, clear water and safe access to/from the sea for people of any age (we visited... More

This beach took my breath away. I mean that quite literally, as we had to walk up a trail from where we parked in Charlotteville. I must admit, the views from walking up that trail were absolutely stunning.Then down lots of steps, and I do mean a lot. More than a hundred. But this was quite fun, although a bit... More

We parked at Charlotteville, then walked up a long, steep hill and then down 156+ steps though the forest and found a delightful, secluded bay. Water was warm, shallow and lots of lovely covers for snorkelling. Shame though that we couldn't find any shade under the trees to picnic/read etc that wasn't covered in litter and hence lots of large... More

Leave your car in Charlotteville, and follow the road along the seafront up the hill, 10 minutes up the hill, road turns right and the just follow the signs and take the concrete stair steps down to the beach. All in all, 15-20 minutes hike, but besides the elevation and easy walk along a well maintained trail. Beach is lovely,... More

Aside from the long drive up from Crown Point to Charlotteville, the experience was really nice and relaxing, we parked close to the jetty and hiked over the hill to get to the bay, was about a 15-20 minute hike which was pretty easy, and the bay was so beautiful and relaxing, there were hardly any waves at all, the...
