You need to get a boat charter to get out there (find a fisherman named "Dash" in C'ville). Bring sunscreen, expect to get wet on the way, and then expect to be awed by the rocks, (London Bridge) and the sea birds of the islands (Brown and red footed boobies, magnificent frigates, brown noddys and others.) Gorgeous!

Off the northern edge of Tobago and the Northernmost point of the island nation, these islands are virtually inaccessible given the rough waters, terrain, and government imposed protection order. Without a special permit, you cannot land there. Still makes for good pictures from the distance though, especially from Flagstaff Hill near Charlotteville.
