I love this beach for a nice soak even though it’s used mainly for the fisherfolk. Take a walk all the way down on the left for the best bathing spot. Water was calm enough for a relaxing bath, no fighting with the waves at all. I liked the well kept beach facilities was able to shower before taking the long drive back to Magdelena.

Local and tourist activity. The dirt ovens, restaurants, watching fishermen, shops, ice cream, and people watching were better here than on any other beach/bay we visited. I loved Castara, and if we are ever lucky enough to return to Tobago, we will definately spend a few days here.

My husband and I went there to snorkel and explore the village. The drive there took us over an hour from Buccoo, about 15 miles. The beach facilities are wonderful, with showers, dressing rooms and toilets. We tried to pay the posted 1TT charge, but they did not want to take it. The beach has plenty of shade and there is parking very close, albeit not many spaces, but it is not crowded at all. We found the water cloudy and not many interesting fish or coral. We went to the right side of the beach. We also got there early enough to order our loaf of bread and coconut drops at the outdoor clay bakery. This happens on Thursday and Saturday, I think. We went back at 3:00, but did have to wait until 3:40 to get our bread, but it is a very interesting event to observe and the bread is delicious.

When we arrived in Scarborough,Tobago we were a liitle surprised to discover that the Local lady who was co ordinating all the cruise passengers into local taxis was obviously VERY determined that we would ALL go to Pigeon point!! her determination was actually quite amusing but if you want a small golden beach to yourself , with just the one beachbar( with wifi)stick to your guns and insist on Castara.A tiny friendly fishing village on the other side of the island. If you dont want to spend @ 40 mins in a taxi each way then its not for you. Equally , if you want chairs and umbrellas its not for you, But, if you want p& Q, great swimming and a white sand beach virtually to yourselves, Do IT. You're by no means isolated as there are lots of small wooden holiday lets dotted into the hillside and a clutch of holiday makers in the know who love to stay here. Its not a resort.Its authentic, safe and friendly.Easy to get there and back for your 5.30 all aboard!and really, as there's nothing to see in Scarborough, why wouldnt you?it's a windy road with fab views and though a couple of us felt a bit quesy on arrival we loved it.The driver you choose should be very happy to wait for payment once he has returned you to the ship.I think we paid about $80US for 4 of us round trip.
