Sea & Beaches

Tobago is renowned for its abundance of beaches - from the pristine white coral sands of the Caribbean coast to the dark, ash grey volcanic sands of the Atlantic coast. Beach adventures are abundant - learn to paddle board, take in the sun’s rays or explore the wonders of bio-luminescence. Often referred to as the “rain forest of the sea”, underwater life in Tobago is absolutely riveting with protected reefs, diverse marine life, and the chance to experience an unforgettable sighting of a leatherback turtle. In Tobago, we encourage you to live your best beach life.

Eco Adventure & Nature

Tobago is often considered as a premier eco-tourism destination and is truly a nirvana for naturalists. The Main Ridge Forest occupies 40% of Tobago’s land mass and is home to over 230 bird species and an array of tropical rain forest life. The opportunities to explore this side of Tobago are endless - take a bird watching tour, hike through the main forest or take a refreshing dip under one of our waterfalls.

Romance & Weddings

Turquoise seas, exquisite sunsets and enchanting moonlight; what a perfect backdrop for your dream wedding! Walking down the aisle is infinitely more memorable when the aisle is a golden beach, a historic fort, or a sun-draped glade set in lush rainforest. You are also invited to do it our way with a traditional 'ole-time' Tobago wedding. The haunting strains of Tobago's 'Tambrin' and fiddle will remain with you long after the festivities have ended.

Fun Facts

Bacolet bay Beach was the location for the 1960 movie, Swiss Family Robinson and a favorite frolicking spot for the Beatles in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Bloody Bay, on the Leeward coast, is named after a bloody naval battle that is reputed to have turned the blue waters red with blood. However, some claim that the beach was stained by red earth deposits.
