Just off the coast of Venezuela but a world apart. Home of the carnival, calypso and limbo dancing, a blend of different cultures, full of laughter and contemplation but also peace, serenity and beauty. You will truly enjoy a visit to Tobago.
The basis for Robinson Crusoe’s desert island, Tobago is an enchanting choice for a holiday. Just 26 miles long and 9 miles wide an ideal place for those searching for relaxation. The forest on the central hills provides a spectacular backdrop for the many horseshoe bays around the coast and good walking, sailing and diving.
Fought over by the Spanish, British, Dutch, French and even the Americans, Tobago boasts a rich and varied history. The various forts and historical sites that dot the island are testament to the island’s former colonial masters and diverse history.
Tobago has over 200 bird species with several great vantage points for bird watching, including the Grafton Caledonia Wildlife Sanctuary, the Main Ridge Forest Reserve and Little Tobago Island, a small offshore island located just off the village of Speyside.
Like Robinson Crusoe, you can live on a secluded beach in Tobago. Unlike him, you can enjoy first-class food and recreational facilities… and return to everyday life when you choose.
