beautiful. went snorkelling and saw loads of stuff! clean, good for swimming. No road so not ruined. The walk is fine, as long as you are fairly secure on your feet

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...

Tucked away in a secluded bay only accessible by boat or a 20min hike, this beach makes you work for it, but it is well worth it! Picture perfect views, crystal clear water, tree lined sandy beach, no crowds - perfect!

One of Tobago's best beaches, and the great thing is that effort is required to get here so you'll be sharing it with a discerning crowd! You walk up a stony track for about 10 minutes and then down about 150-200 steps (it seems like more!) to be greeted by a stunning small sandy beach. The forest comes right down... More

Lovely walk from Charlotteville with gorgeous views of beaches and countryside. Supposed to be good snorkelling but seas to rough to do on the day we visited. Lovely palm backed beach. No facilities but very scenic.
