It was a bit scary getting to the beach. Navigating the hill while overlooking the cliff and the view was amazing. Scenic blue and green waters, lush vegetation. It was worth the adventure as it was the most romantic and beautiful beach for my wife and I in Tobago.

Pirate's Bay is very secluded and untouched. My boyfriend and I were being daring and we drove... we should not have done that. It was very scary trying to maneuver on that narrow and bumpy road with no railing. We made it to an area that had a little more room and I got out and directed him to turn... More

A fantastic, beautiful beach that is relatively easy to access. Its like a movie scene. Calm waters that's perfect for everyone. Be sure to walk with snorkelling gear as you can see beautiful fish in waist high water. A really ideal beach for those who love serenity.

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
