Tobago is a beautiful island which is just 26 miles long, lined with white sand beaches, coral reefs and palm trees swaying in the breeze. Unspoilt by tourism and with a diverse and exciting culture, visitors are made to feel beyond welcome by the locals. With accommodation options ranging from exclusive boutique hotels to intimate inns and self-catering villas, Tobago is perfect for a luxury holiday or a cost-effective getaway.
Holidays in Tobago can be spent exploring the island’s lush landscape and large sweeping beaches, reached by a hike through the forest or by boat. The island offers beautiful weather, an abundance of marine life including whale sharks and leatherback turtles, and adrenaline filled activities such as paddleboarding, ziplining and horse riding..
The island’s east coast, pounded by the powerful, white-capped waves of the Atlantic Ocean, is dotted with charming fishing villages, of which Speyside is possibly the most known. The west Caribbean coast has an array of beautiful coral sand beaches such as Castara, Englishman's Bay, Parlatuvier and Bloody Bay, often deserted except for a few fishermen. The most northerly of the villages along this coast, Charlotteville, lies at the juncture with the Atlantic Ocean and, like Speyside, has impressive coral reefs many within swimming distance of the beach making it ideal for scuba diving and snorkelling.
We’d recommend spending an evening at Sunday School in Buccoo, the island’s famous street party where celebrations go on until the early hours of Monday morning.
Tobago forms a nation with the neighbouring island of Trinidad, reached by a flight of just minutes (costing around £20 per person, each way). Trinidad is home to some of the Caribbean’s few 17th century castles as well as picturesque scenery including mangrove swamps and rainforested hills.
