The vast majority of visitors to Tobago are seeking holidays with lots of sun, sea and sand. Tobago has an abundance of both and no other Caribbean island boasts quite the same range of largely deserted beaches, varying from the pristine white coral sands of the Caribbean coast to the dark volcanic sands of the Atlantic coast.

Please keep in mind that nude and/or topless sunbathing is illegal in Tobago. This practice is often considered highly offensive to the local population. Please also remember to cover-up when leaving the beach.

Cable Bay was given that name mainly due to the electricity and telephone cables from Trinidad land at this beach. It is located right at the bottom of Pigeon Point Road and borders Coconut Bay. This small yellow sand beach is reasonably sheltered and is popular with local children.
