Fun and Sun at Pigeon Point Heritage Park
Duration: Half Day
Located between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, the beautiful, relaxed island of Tobago boasts some of the best beaches in the Caribbean. Imagine soft white sand and swaying coconut palms, whilst you sip cocktails and look out onto clear turquoise waters. Also known as ‘Robinson Crusoe Island’, it is no wonder that Tobago is believed to be the tropical island that Robinson Crusoe was shipwrecked on in Daniel Defoe’s famous novel. Tobago is undoubtedly a small piece of paradise and a Caribbean gem just waiting to be explored.
Both the Atlantic and the Caribbean coastlines offer spectacular scenery and their own unique charm, but the Tobago’s South West region is particularly beautiful, and popular with tourists. This tour will take you to Pigeon Point, which is renowned for its stunning beaches and excellent snorkelling opportunities. Visitors flock from all over the world to swim and snorkel in the Nylon Pool at the world famous Buccoo Reef. Located in a 125 acre protected Marine Park, this is the largest coral reef in Tobago, stretching from Pigeon Point to the Bon Accord lagoon.
Buccoo Reef is also one of the most spectacular reefs in the world, and the habitat for an abundance of tropical marine species. The breathtaking Coral Garden is home to a variety of soft and hard coral species, including Star Coral, Elkorn Coral, Brain Coral and Stag Horn Coral. A myriad of exotic fish species can also be found here, including angel fish, butterfly fish and parrot fish, as well as sea turtles, giant manta rays, sharks and many other marine creatures. You can experience the beauty of this majestic underwater world via glass-bottom boat or snorkeling.
Spend time relaxing on one of Pigeon Point’s glorious beaches and feel the soft, powdery white sand between your toes. Enjoy a feeling of both relaxation and exhilaration as you swim in calm, azure Caribbean waters, or just bask in the sun and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere from your sun-lounger, working up an appetite for a tasty lunch at a popular local restaurant.
Stroll along the beach, where you can look for souvenirs in the local handicraft shops, enjoy some water sports or take part in a game of volley ball. On certain days, a treasure hunt will be organised, which you can sign up for and then search the beach to find the hidden treasures of the day. It’s your day to relax and do as you wish. Whatever you decide to do, a day tour at Pigeon Point will certainly leave you rejuvenated, which is exactly what you would expect from a holiday in Tobago.
What's included: Return transfers, entrance fee, one welcome drink, lunch and complimentary drink, reserved sun-chair and the use of a beach hut.
