This is another must add to your Tobago shortlist. The drive to the beach is very scenic but the beach itself is lovely. There is a restaurant on the beach so you can buy lunch if you did not bring any. The changing facilities are not the best though but all in all the experience is definitely worth it.

Englishman's bay has great views over it wide beach. We stopped here regularly in the evening as its only a 10 minute drive from the Crown Point area. Parking is easy and you can sit and watch the world go by. On clear evenings the sunset is fantastic.

Its scenic, its quiet, its quite a trek from hotels, there's one beach bar, there's no running water, there's strong currents, there is big bamboo, there is a dirt road to get to the beach, the beach has some poisonous trees around the fringe. Some people would call this paradise, some people would think of it as hell. Some will... More

In all my research leading up to our vacation to Tobago i knew we had to visit Englishmans Bay. This is really a spectacular beach. Beautiful sand, crystal clear water and an amazing setting. You will not be disappointed!

This bay is amazing! Almost a virgin place, a little bit far but definitely worth the ride! Take all you can need with you because you will not find anything there. There's a "restaurant" in the bay but they only had beers, not even bottled water. You can find many convenience stores before arrive. Please, take the road trip and... More

It's been said before but, yes, this really is somewhere any visitor to Tobago should make the effort to visit - even if only to feast your eyes for a few moments and take the necessary photo. Except for the first day, when there were still some Trinidad folk over for the Easter break, on all other 4 visits we... More
