Blue Waters Inn is a little piece of tropical heaven in the quieter northern side of the island. Our room was a ground floor with terrace about 50 feet from the beach. It is a great walking and sunning beach. The staff was courteous and helpful esp. The decor is fresh and blue. No phones in the room. No alarm clocks. Near to rainforests and great beaches like Parlatuvier and Englishman's Bay and Castara. The rainforest and Little Tobago (brain coral and seabirds) are at your doorstep.
It is about a two hour drive from the airport best done in daylight to see all the stunning views and hairpin turns with a new beach at every turn. The hotel will arrange a shuttle for you and simply add it to your bill.
This part of the island gives the traveller a taste of the real Caribbean - before the advent of big four star hotels and non stop action. Come here for nature and to nurture your soul.
Do go for a hike up the Argyle River and take a refreshing dip in Argyle Waterfalls.
Do go into town and eat at the local restaurants esp. Jemma's with its shutters open to sea breezes and its 200 year old almond tree and do savour the fresh shrimp and lobster and breadfruit pie and ginger beer.
Spend a day with Simon touring towns and secluded beaches. He is a gentleman and naturalist and so informative and ready to fashion the tour to suit you (Simon McLetchie Tours-www.tobago-adventure.com)
Highly recommed this hotel and this area of the island.
