Englishman’s bay is a secluded beach around an hour drive away from Tobago’s capital Scarborough. The drive itself was beautiful and quiet. The beach is largely unspoilt and the sea clean. There is a small souvenir shop but nowhere to wash after bathing. Definitely worth...More

Very uncrowded when I visited. Enjoyed a bite and a few beers from Eula's located right on the beach. Great snorkeling on both sides of the bay. Convenient parking lot as well.

Sadly our visit coincided with an exceptionally rainy period. The bar was closed and the beach covered in washed up bits of palm tree etc, and the water rough and brown! I'm sure it's beautiful normally! The car parking area was rather neglected with litter...More

The snorkelling is great off the beach. White clean sands. Very friendly family run cafe/restaurant and a guy selling handmade souvenirs. What more could anyone want?

Beautiful beach, calm, serene and peaceful. Not crowded in the least. The Restaurant food smelt wonderful but we didn't have a chance to eat any.

I can only agree with previous reviews by saying that Englishman's Bay beach is absolutely gorgeous. It was wonderful to spend the day at a beach that appears widely untouched by civilization, i.e. without sun chairs, vendors, must, bars etc. The tide can be quite...More
