Honeymooning in Tobago
Posted Sep 28, 2023
Your honeymoon should be a once in a lifetime trip. A time to celebrate the start of married life and spend time together doing whatever you love the most – whether that’s exploring new destinations and cultures or just experiencing ultimate relaxation.
Tobago has it all. Beautiful beaches, gorgeous weather and unspoilt landscapes. Read on to discover why the island should be on your honeymoon bucket list.
A Quiet Caribbean Escape
If after a busy few months of planning your wedding you’re ready to switch off with your new partner, then Tobago is THE perfect pick. Known as sleepy Tobago, this Caribbean island is full of charm yet incredibly laid back. And when you’re surrounded by unspoiled rainforests, picture-perfect waterfalls and natural beauty the tranquillity is hard to beat.
One of the island’s most popular romantic hotel spots is Blue Waters Inn. With just 38 guest rooms and bungalows the resort is situated in 42 acres of tropical gardens and has direct access to Batteaux Bay. Every room is sea facing and after a day of soaking up the sun you can enjoy alfresco dining on their Driftdeck.
Relaxing this hard really works up an appetite so it’s a good job Tobago has an abundance of restaurants serving traditional food and drinks.
The Caribbean Kitchen at Castara Retreats has everything you could possibly want on a honeymoon date night. From cocktails at sunset looking over the ocean to a menu packed with locally sourced, fresh ingredients including fish and seafood brought in daily from the small fishing boats.
You’ll be warmly welcomed by their team and treated to an evening you won’t forget.
Getting in on the Action
If you fancy a few hours away from the sun lounger then a trip to Buccoo Reef is the ideal excursion. Book onto a glass-bottom boat tour to explore the island’s largest reef or dive straight in and snorkel to admire the marine life in the warm waters.
And no honeymoon to Tobago would be complete without a trip to Nylon Pool. The clear lagoon, just south of Buccoo Reef, is a popular attraction and for good reason. The natural one-metre deep swimming pool is only accessible by boat and once you arrive you can jump in and swim in waist deep crystal waters whilst enjoying the breath-taking views of Pigeon Point. Locals say your love can be sealed forever if you share a kiss beneath the water surface!
Fall in Love
You simply cannot leave Tobago until you’ve visited one of the impressive waterfalls. Enjoy a couple’s hike to the fall and experience the natural and unspoiled backdrop before your eyes. Make sure you pack your swim gear so you can take a dip and snap some photos so you can look back on how beautiful it was.
Nestled under the rainforest canopy, Castara Waterfall is one of Tobago’s most accessible falls, just a short five minute walk upstream leads you to the private pool perfect for taking a dip with your partner. You’ll also spot stunning birds and wildlife on your short walk to reach.
So, if you’re in the midst of planning your honeymoon make sure you consider Tobago. See you in paradise.
