A gem of a bay

A small hike or a cheap boat from Charlotte would get you there. Very calm and clear waters , white to golden sands , the stuff of tropical dreams

I found out about this beach right here on trip advisor, thanks to other person's reviews. This trip turned out to be a mini adventure! It's a hidden gem! It's a bumpy dirt road to get to the beach which we didn't expect, and quite a bit of steps downhill, but this all added to the fun. I will advise... More

Nice place to bathe. For the strong willed the 200 steps is a nice form of exercise, for the older folks a short boat ride will get you there but once there the experience is great. Couples and families will enjoy this beach.

We visited this beach whilst we were in Charlotteville. We stopped at Man O War Bay and was told about Tim Tim and his lil speed boat who took us to Priates Bay. Absolutely stunning, quiet and super clean! Tim Tim also took us to Lovers Bay (which has red and white sand) again another stunning hidden gem in Tobago.

Beautiful beach with not many people around. Nice and quiet. I little bit if a walk down a few flights of stairs but worth it.

This is a hidden beach,deserted but for a bar and rope swing.The snorkelling is good,the setting tranquil & not so unreachable if you either walk from Charlotteville or drive up to the viewpoint,park and walk the 10 minutes from there.You must certainly won't regret having made the effort,but remember to keep the place secret and unspoilt!

So glad we went here as it was as good as Englishman's bay and certainly no crowds, loud music etc. Peaceful, serene, calm, swim with the fish, warm water, soft glorious sand and we loved the views too with the mountain background. Will visit again!

We live on our catamaran and have anchored off this lovely little beach on a number of occasions over the past 3 years since arriving in the Caribbean. It is one of our favourite spots with a watercourse cascading down through the rainforest to the beach. There is a steep, stone, moss-covered staircase leading up to the path back into... More

This strip of primative beach was good. 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 side. It did have a few pebbles in the surf and a shack on the far side pumping out reggae music (so not quite a... More

One the best bays we visited and on a parr (if not better than) with Englishmans Bay. Fantastic snorkelling (especially on the left) with schools of small fry to swim with.
