Things to do in Tobago

If your ideal holiday is spending time on an idyllic stretch of white or golden sand then you’re in luck, Tobago has plenty of beaches where you could spend hours relaxing and soaking up the Caribbean sunshine including those in Charlotteville and Castara Bay.

There are some great opportunities for snorkelling and diving on the island, as the warm sea waters are so clear, you can easily see all the fascinating marine life and coral reef living underneath.
