“Lacking in charm”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Having heard a lot about this beach we were very disappointed. There was no where to park and the beach like so many others shelved steeply and was not good for young children. A pretty village though and would be ok for adults.

“Simple spend a day here on the beach”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

This definitely is the best beach we visited on Tobago. We were lucky enough to see the local fishermen pulling in the huge net full of fish. The place is really tranquil and there is a small supermarket just off the beach to buy some cold Carib or Stag. Bring binoculars to look at the birds.

“Perfect for snorkelling, a swim And To relax on watching The fishermen.”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Snorkelling is fantastic, Just as good as when We went out on The glass bottomed boat And much quieter!! Head out To The far end of little bay for an amazingly deep And beautiful underwater world.
Sand is Perfect for children. Sea is clear And calm unless weather is stormy!!
The People are friendly.
Don't forget your snorkelling hear. £14 at Decathalon!!
