Castara Bay even though I did not bathe is such a lovely bay. There's such an amazing scenary!! All those beautiful fishermen boats. Castara for me is like a fishermen stop besides all the beauty of it. The fishermen's boats are there and its like a liming spot. Castara is still a amazingly gorgeous beach!!

Very beautiful and untouched beach in Tobago. A must visit! Very quiet and serene. Bit of a drive to get there but definitely worth it.

The beach is great to bathe in and if your lucky enough to be there when the fishermen come in you get fresh fish that they may even cook for you right on the spot!

Authentic - a dreadful term, but this really is what I would like the Caribbean to be: A gorgeous beach, amazing sea life just below the surface, a sustainable subsistence fishing "industry", locals running most of the tourism establishments, no tourism infrastructure ruining it for the local population. So basically, seen from the ocean, it's: corals and sea life, then... More

The day we arrived, Sting rays were feeding on the little dead fish and that had come in with the fishermen. Quite a sight per se! Be informed that they do not attack, but will defend themselves. That said, all you need to do is ensure you don't walk on them by splashing a bit when you go into the... More
