Beach Walks - Tobago Holiday Treasures
Duration: Half Day
The beaches in Tobago and Trinidad are amongst the most beautiful and diverse in the Caribbean, so visitors are certainly spoilt for choice. These contrasting islands are equally stunning, and whilst Trinidad is the larger and more populous of the two, the smaller island of Tobago has much to offer explorers. One of the best ways to discover the natural beauty of Tobago is to walk along its coastline. Lush vegetation, pristine white sands, crystal clear waters and an abundance of wildlife are just some of the treasures you will discover on the way.
If you are considering exploring Tobago’s stunning coastline on foot, each area of the island has its own unique beauty. Starting near the town of Crown Point on the south-eastern coast, you will find a number of popular beaches, including Store Bay, Pigeon Point and Sandy Point, among others. With its picture-postcard scenery, Pigeon Point is considered the most beautiful beach in Tobago. Calm aquamarine waters lap the powdery soft white sandy shores, lush coconut palms sway gently in the breeze and traditional, grass-roof huts lie scattered across the beach. This is the epitome of tropical paradise and everything you’d imagine from an idyllic Caribbean escape. The beach is private, but visitors can pay a small fee to use its facilities. Store Bay is also beautiful, but often busy with locals and visitors arriving from Crown Point airport, so if you are looking for something more tranquil, head to Sandy Point. Perched on the most western point of Tobago, this relatively quiet white sandy beach is bordered by palms and sea grapes and is a wonderful place to watch the sun set.
Togago’s Leeward Coast is fringed by beautiful coral reefs and the calm Caribbean Sea. Here you will discover beautiful beaches such as Castara Bay, which is nestled amongst the friendly fishing village of Castara, and Englishman's Bay, where you can pick up some beautiful handmade crafts and souvenirs. If you have time to travel from Buccoo to Plymouth, Turtle Beach is definitely worth a visit. Ss its name suggests, this beautiful white sandy beach is inhabited by nesting leatherback turtles. You can also see turtles and iguanas nesting at Grange Bay, whilst one of the most popular beaches for walkers is Stonehaven Bay.
Last but not least, if you can explore the more rugged Windward Coast, Flagstaff Hill on the northern tip of Tobago is worth a visit just for its magnificent views of London Bridge Rock, the St Giles and Melville Islands and the powerful Atlantic Ocean, whilst the dark sandy Granby Bay is overlooked by an old fort. As you explore the coastline you will often stumble across historic ruins, nature reserves and tranquil fishing villages. This is just a small selection of Tobago’s most beautiful beaches, where you can enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery on the island, but whichever coast you visit, you are bound to find your very own piece of paradise. Just don’t forget the insect repellent and sunscreen!
