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.

Castara has two beautiful golden sand beaches (2.4km), both great for swimming. Big Bay is the focus of the village. A visit first thing in the morning could have you helping the fisherman pull in their nets. A late afternoon stroll will reward you with fantastic views of the sun setting over the Caribbean. Little Bay, which is also known as Heavenly Bay, is more secluded and great for snorkeling you may even be lucky enough to see a manta ray.
