Postcard beach

Cute place, few ppl on the beach. Very good for swimming. Calm waters when we went. Nice short hike to get there.

It's a beautiful place to just relax by the water unbothered. The beach is quiet probably since it's quite a hike to get there. But the hike is worth it. Beautiful and serene.

We did not take the boat to this hideaway beach. However our drive uphill the narrow unpaved path was an adventure not for the faint of heart. Looking out the car to the steep cliff I can see the emrald waters of this treasured bay. After winding up for a short while, we arrived breathless gasping at the beautiful scene.... More

It's a beautiful bay best accessed by boat. We climbed up the neighbouring hill to get a view from above. We didn't see anybody on the beach.

The 100 steps to go down was a bit perilous but the views were stunning. with little foot traffic and tucked neatly in the country side, the waters were calm and welcoming. definitely will return.

It's a bit of a rickety drive to Pirate's Bay, and then a long-ish walk down to the beach, but absolutely worth it. The water is calm and cool, with even sand and water that is the most arresting shade of blue/green. Very secluded (there were only three or four people around when we were there). The water is perfect.... More

took a boat tour of north side of island and this was one of the stops. it was like looking at a postcard...except we were there and it was real. the boat captain took us close into the beach and we waded in the last little bit. kind of like gilligan's island (if you're old enough to remember that show)...was...

Either trek down or anchor in the wide bay. Here a pirate ship was fired upon by a British warship.. the bodies floating to adjacent Bloody Bay..which was named after the event. Peaceful, but no great snokelling.

Loved the serenity of this beautiful beach at Pirate's Bay. It was a trek down many steps to the beach and well worth it! A must see in Tobago...

We dropped our anchor close to pirates bay so with the dingi it was no distant to visit. It is an exzellent area for relaxing but also a start point for snorkelling. There are reefs on each site on the beach this has to be experienced. For barbecue SonSon is a good adress, his wife's cooking very good side dishes.
