“Pretty little beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

Nice little beach. Pretty, not at all commercial with some good looking guests houses and places to rent in the surrounding area and overlooking the beach.

“beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2012

One of Tobago's best beaches. I think it may also have the softest sand and the most beautiful water. Lovely and usually not as crowded as the more popular beaches. Perfect for relaxation.

“peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

Two beautiful bay's with a back drop of tropical palm trees close to rainforrest. Has a couple of beach front resturants with nice but simple food. Sea can be choppy but snorkelling can be ok from little bay, keep your eye out for stingrays as they are often seen in the bays.

“Perfect away from it all holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

We stayed at Tamarind cottage,one of 3 beautiful apartments that, make Castara cottage. the cottage was just yards from the beach down a fairly steep track, the only difficulty being whether to turn, right for Little Bay or, left for Castara Bay. Tamarind is surrounded by trees making the verandah completely private but still offering perfect views across to the bay.The apartment is really spacious and the bed really comfortable. We found the standard of cleanliness to be very high, the shower was surprisingly powerful and the water hot.
. Our breakfasts were a.delight with brightly coloured birds.coming to check on what was available. The people of Castara were very welcoming, and this is very much a working community who happen to attract a few.visitors. It is definitely not a tourist resort, more a.place that will allow you to be absorbed into the daily life as much or as little as you want. There are local lads who will be keen to take you on boat trips for snorkelling and even offer to cook for you, but you won't be hassled in the way that can happen in busier islands. There are plenty of places to eat and its well worth going to the coffee shop for, breakfast.,., menus are rare- just ask what is on offer then, sit back and watch the world go by whilst it its freshly cooked for you. evening entertainment could be had at the Boat House, which is right on the, beach, where you could try your hand at, limbo, also bbq at the coffee shop with steel pan band, plus a party night at Blue mango, or travel further to Buccoo to experience the not to be missed Sunday school. A great holiday in beautiful surroundings
