“Nice beach in itself. The experience was not for me though...”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Visited here as it has a great reputation. Pretty unimpressed though. Yes, there is a nice sandy beach, but it is very very busy. I thought that other beach experiences we had on the islands were much more enjoyable:
* Maracas beach on Trinindad was more 'fun' for a popular beach and also has the famous Bake and Shark huts to munch at - much nicer than the cold soggy 'fast' food served up at Pigeon Point
* The beaches on the north shore of Tobago were also very nice, though not so accessible without a car - Big and Little bay at Castara, Englishman's Bay, Bloody Bay, ...

One also has to pay to gain access. Only TT18, but still.

On the upside, the waves at Pigeon Point are very gentle, and there is also a lifeguard, and a roped off swimming area - good if you have young children.

“Lovely”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

Probably the best beach to swim and enjoy, but not the most beautiful. And also everybody goes there, so it's always crowded. But even so, amazing.

“My favourite beach in the world”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

The topic says it all.

Soft white sand, calm turquoise waters............what more can you ask for?

Change rooms are ok, and a good variety of food to choose from the nearby restaurant. Only wished it had service to your deck chairs - especially cold drinks.

Absolutely as close to paradise as you can imagine.

Entrance fee of about 3-4 US$ but well worth it.

“Great for kids”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Pigeon Point is great for kids - the water is very calm and the sand is nice. Our kids were in the water for hours. We got a little shaded place with a picnic table. A food stand was nearby. There was plenty to do and see. Highly recommended! Entrance is TT $18!

“A day by the sea”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Had a memorable day here. Beach is clean and safe for swimming. Sun beds are abundant and quite cheap to hire. Plenty of tree cover to shelter from the sun. Glass bottom boat trips are available (we saw a Manta Ray just circling our boat - amazing). Only thing that stopped it from getting an "excellent" review was the overloud bar which was the only place we could get take-away food from - even then we had to wait nearly an hour to get two crab-wraps and fries!
