    Very Nice Beach
    A free shuttle ride from our resort Sandy Point Beach Resort. A very nice beach with lots of clean sandy shoreline. The water was nice and warm but not much for snorkelling. There where lots of little shops to browse and food vendors to to enjoy the delicious local cuisine. You can purchase beach chairs, umbrellas and cabanas for a very cheap price. Would revisit 👍👍

    Lovely beach, good facilities
    Lovely beach with good facilities including small bars, food kiosks, washrooms and toilets, parking, etc. 20TTD pp entry fee as this is a heritage park area. A good way to spend a day when in Tobago.

    Paradise
    Stunning, picture postcard beach. Really cheap entrance fee and day rental of loungers and parasols are also good value for a tourist spot. Decent facilities and a good bar near the pier to get a beer and have lunch.

    Great location Great people
    Visited this area a couple of times on our stay and thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend a visit when in Tobago. The last day of our holidays we visited with other couples from our resort Happy Birthday Jerome, and just as we were leaving a guy said stay we are realising the baby turtles which was an amazing experience. Definitely worth a visit and to see the famous jetty.

    Great beach
    A must go. We decided to go to this beach as Tobago was one of our port stops. We caught a taxi right outside of the port. The drive was about 25mins. There is a beach fee of approximately $3.50pp (USD). Once we were at the beach we were able to rent chairs and an umbrella. There were several amenities (showers & restrooms). The water was rough but cool. We ate at a restaurant on the beach and the food was delicious plus affordable. The restaurant played carribean music and was next to a pier. Overall great beach day for the family.

    Pigeon Point Beach? Just do it!!
    I've read so many negative things about this spot that I can only think the reviewers are trying to save it for themselves! We were a group of 4, hired a taxi to take us out and return to get us 3-4 hours later. I'd say there was never more than 20 other people on the whole large beach while we were there. Competing vendors selling (very good!) rum punch and other fruit based drinks. One other vendor politely selling his jewelry. The beach sand was soft, water was clear, temperature was perfect and it was slightly cloudy. The only semi-negative is that it's a bit of a hike to the bathrooms from the beach. We all truly enjoyed our day and thought this was one of the best days of our trip. Go. You won't regret it!

    Beautiful beach with everything you need close by
    This beach is beautiful and very clean. The water is sparkling blue, there are washrooms, restaurants, bars, and rentals for chairs etc. what more could you ask for? It’s not huge, so everything is close by to access once you enter the park. Entrance fee was $3.50 USD pp. the sand is beautiful, and the swimming area is marked off from boats and jet skis.

    Great time as usual
    My partner and I spent the majority of our time in Tobago at this beach. We purchased the 3 day couple Chillax package for $350TTD. This included 3 day entry for 2, 2 chairs and an umbrella. This worked out great for us because on our last day when we arrived an hour after the beach opened there were no more umbrellas and they compensated us by giving us one of the huts. The beach is beautifully picturesque, worth the iconic jetty. If you want to relax you can. If you’d like to take in any water sports that is available and o if you want to go on a glass bottom boat tour there is that option too. There are many well maintained washrooms & change areas. There are a few places too buy fits and drinks. However, it’s standard hot dogs/hamburgers and fries kind of food really. There are shops where you can buy snacks, souvenirs and anything beach worthy that you’ve forgotten to pack. There is no soliciting other than the tour operators coming around to see if you’d like to go on a tour. Definitely a must when on the island.

After negotiating a reasonable price to go from the town to the beach we were pleased that our driver told us about the island and some of the important buildings. We had to pay a small entrance fee as Pigeon Point is a nature reserve, our driver had explained this first. He came back for us at the agreed time. There were water sports, but we walked further up to a quieter area. There were plenty of sunbeds ( which you had to pay for of course). We enjoyed watching the pelicans diving for fish. Plenty of restrooms, cleaner and better appointed than many I’ve been to on beaches. No shortage of beach bars either and soft drinks were very reasonably priced. It’s an idyllic spot, one of the highlights of our holiday.

Stayed at a small lodging on Old Store Bay Rd and walked to Pigeon Point. It is a flat, easy walk and takes about 20 minutes. There is fee to get in, but I didn't mind paying. It was small in comparison to beaches/parks where I live. (I won't get into too many details as they have already been said.) The water was beautiful and occasionally my foot did hit a piece of coral, but for the most part it was smooth sand. I wasn't bothered by too many vendors. A nice "no thank you" was all that was needed. There was a little ice cream stand that had some of the best ice cream. The bathrooms and changing rooms were very nice. Just be careful as the floors can get slippery. A young boy did slip and busted his head open while I was there. It was nice to walk towards the end of park and watch the kite surfers. I enjoyed playing pool at the first bar/restaurant when I needed a break from the sun. I loved walking back right after sunset because along the road (in the park) I always got to encounter hummingbirds at the flowering bushes. They would let you get so close. I imagine some of the people driving by thought i was a bit strange talking to bushes as they may not have seen the birds lol. Tips: If you comb the beach before and after the event pavilion, you can find lots of sea glass and beautiful shells. Very quiet along there too so great photo opportunities or if you need solitude.

The entrance fee is moderate, a few TT dollars, and the beach is superb. Perfect sand and sea. You can rent comfortable loungers for $5 US a day, also a huge sun umbrella for the same price. So, you can admire the scene in full shade (if you wish) and great comfort. If you arrive by car, you do best to drive as far as is possible, to the area where the loungers and 2/3 eateries are. Of course, you need a sunny day too, to appreciate the scene to its maximum advantage. When you venture for a swim you will find smooth white sand underneath. This is what gives the sea its magnificent turquoise colour.

The beach where we were staying (Grafton) wasn't really suitable for relaxing, so took a taxi (TTD100 each way) to Pigeon Point for the day..... had visited briefly to catch the glass-bottom boat and Nylon Pool (amazing!) on a tour so knew it was lovely. Didn't disappoint.... a small entrance fee (TTD20) provided a wristband, and a further TT30 a comfy sunbed wherever you wanted it .... plenty of choice of sunshine or shady trees & cabanas also available. Lovely golden sand, clear water, well maintained toilets & a choice of restaurants. Highly recommend at least one trip here when you're in Tobago.

An absolutely stunning beach, definitely worth visiting while on the island. There’s a small entrance fee per person as this is a nature reserve, but when you get inside you understand why. The whole area is clean and well kept and there are good facilities available (lockers, showers, loos, lifeguard) as well as food outlets and bars. Traditions serves great food, we had really yummy bake and shark and the rum punch was excellent! Glass bottom boat tours are available from about 100TT pp, but we negotiated a more private day-long tour with a great guy called Anton. For 500TT pp he took us on a coastline tour by speedboat. We snorkelled in 3 different places, including the famous Buccoo Reef. The coral and fish were incredible! We also visited the Nylon Pool, and had a delicious bbq lunch on the beach on No Man’s Island. Anton was fab and dropped us off at all these places just after all the party boats had departed so we had them all to ourselves! What an incredible experience, thank you Anton - find this guy on the beach and book him!

We spent more time here than I thought we would since we usually aren't into tourist beaches. Lovely beach and even better on the days the cruise ships do not port! Many excursions can be done and booked here. Also watersport rental equipment available as well as some restaurants. It does have an entry fee to enter, but no fee to use the restrooms as some other areas do. I also felt the area to park seemed safer than at some of the other beaches.

This beach is one of my favourite places I visited in Tobago. Entrance into Pigeon point is 20 TTD. The different shades of aqua waters were a pleasure to watch & the iconic jetty (a great photo opportunity) You can hire 2 beds & umbrella for 90TTD. There is 2 main restaurants where you can purchase food & drinks. You are able to do boat trips to Nylon bay ( it is worth doing).

Spent a day on Pigeon Point Beach. Loved it. The sand is like powder, the colour of the water is an incredible turquoise blue, there are great washroom facilities (all included in the park entrance fee), and great places to eat/drink. I HIGHLY recommend spending some time at Pigeon Point. You can also take glass-bottom boat tours from the pier out to the reef for snorkeling and to Nylon Pool and No Man’s Land. (We did that on a separate day and loved it.)

This beach is fabulous, but looked a little neglected this year. You have to pay to go on it, so come on clean the beach up of broken glass and seaweed.
Renmars beach bar is fabulous for food and drink.

Very relaxing clean beach.
