Tobago is like the Caribbean of old, with no high-rise resorts to blight your view, and no crowds to compete with on the beaches. Here, you can step away from the frenetic pace of day-to-day life and absorb yourself in a place where nature reigns and relaxation rules.

There’s a bounty of biodiversity on this compelling island; it’s home to the oldest protected rainforest in the western hemisphere, which unfolds in a riot of lush vegetation humming with life, waterfalls plunging into glittering pools, and over 200 species of cheerful birds erupting in song. The underwater world is just as enthralling, and you can peer into the deep on a glass-bottom boat ride, dive to kaleidoscopic coral reefs, or paddle amongst shimmering bioluminescence under the moonlight.
Where To Stay
Beautifully-crafted, characterful accommodations, staggering sea views and a sense of bringing the outside in are what characterise the family-run Castara Retreats.
And the grandiose Coco Reef Resort & Spa impresses with its glittering chandeliers, coral-stone walls and nostalgic décor, with its powdery beach mere footsteps away.
