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.
Cove Reef is a fringing reef that mainly consists of sponges and hard corals. The reef flat starts in 10 meters and is sloping gently down to 25 m. It is one of the deeper reefs in the South end of the island. With its numerous crevices and caves it is the perfect hideaway for lobsters, moray eels and nurse sharks. The typical Caribbean variety can also be found here: Grouper, Trumpet Fish, Rays, Trunk and Trigger Fish, Turtles and Barracudas are dwellers on Cove Reef.
