Small island off of Speyside, closed to the public though. The dilapidated house was supposedly Ian Fleming's, and it would make a great museum but no actions of late to move this along. Picture worthy, but the real treat is Angel Reef directly in front of the island facing Speyside.

This is one of the few islands off the coast of Tobago, that has a structure on it. However unless you are adept at climbing, the rest of the island would be a bit inhospitable. It is very pretty to look at, and I almost wish that the building could be open for use for events.

Lovely boat trip. Enjoyed the roughish sea journey.Thought the house standing out on Goat Island once belonged to Ian Fleming but on investigation, discovered he didn't live there at all.

Tours to Little Tobago pop over to Goat Island for a bit of snorkeling as part of the package. There's a extensive reef around this island and visibility is great. Good snorkeling in front of the island with views of the Ian Flemming villa.
