Lizzy's Caribbean Laze
Duration: Half Day
Located northeast of its sister island Trinidad, Tobago is the smaller of the two islands, both of which lie furthest south of the Caribbean archipelago. Beautiful, diverse landscapes are just waiting to be discovered on the volcanic island of Tobago, much of which is hilly, with lush vegetation and rainforests. The remaining southwest region of the island is flat and primarily made of coralline limestone. The dramatic landscapes and stark contrasts between the Caribbean and Atlantic coastlines make this unspoilt island a fascinating place to explore, each side offering something unique.
The rugged Atlantic coast offers dramatic views of rocky shores, mountains, valleys, rainforest, sheltered coves, fishing villages, beaches and some of the most beautiful coral reefs and best diving sites on the island. In contrast, the Caribbean side of the island offers idyllic white-sand beaches, lush hills, secluded, palm-lined bays and clear, turquoise waters which are excellent for diving and snorkelling in. Dive sites such as Cotton Bay and Emerald Cove are home to beautiful coral formations, lobsters, sharks, moray eels and hundreds of colourful tropical fish. Both coasts give way to dense rainforest, which cover the mountainous highlands region.
Enjoy a lazy afternoon on this relaxing tour of Tobago as you take a drive along the picturesque Caribbean side of the island. Marvel at the stunning panoramic views of the hills and plains, observing the spectacular Caribbean flora and fauna as you meander through mountainous villages. Get your camera ready to capture stunning vistas all around you as your personal tour guide points out sleepy fishing villages and beautiful bays and beaches dotted along the glorious coastline, including the famous Englishman's Bay, Parlatuvier Bay and Castara Bay.
Your drive will then take you back through Les Coteaux before arriving at the Arnos Vale Hotel, a tranquil retreat set in a 450 acre tropical paradise in the hills, overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Relax on the patio and enjoy a delicious afternoon tea. Then, prepare for an exciting and rare sight as a stunning array of tropical birds swoop down to join you, where they can be fed by hand.
Bird lovers will delight in this unique ceremony. Immerse yourself in the sounds and smells of the Caribbean and enjoy the amazing variety of native plants and wildlife as you stroll through the beautifully-landscaped gardens, which slope down to a secluded beach. This exciting island tour will enable you to discover the real Caribbean during your holiday in Tobago.
