Getting to the beach requires a short, uphill walk with the most incredible views of the ocean. Though some folks drove part of the way along the narrow dirt road, we preferred the walk in order to take in the views. (Some folks chose to get there on boats from Charlotteville so this is an option also). After about 20... More

This is definitely a hidden gem in the hills of the northern coast of Tobago. I happened to spot this beach off in the distance whilst in awe of the spectacular view at Fort Campleton. After inquiries it was discovered that you had to drive then walk to it (a lot of steps down to the beach). Though a bit... More

Secluded, quiet beach. The trek to the beach has great views of Charlotteville. Calmer waters than at Charlotteville.

We were there in November and the both times we went, we were alone on this magnificent beach. Great place to meditate.

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
