Cities

Other destinations

Understand

Tobago is a delightful island in the southern Caribbean. It is an escape from the hustle and bustle of Port of Spain for those from Trinidad and, served by Virgin Atlantic, British Airways, Condor and Monarch as a major destination for those from outside the country. The west side of the island features beautiful beaches and the Bucco reef at Pigeon Point. The east side features unspoilt rainforest that are protected and is the oldest protected rainforest on the western Hemisphere.

Talk

The people talk English with a strong accent, a few dialect words and quite fast but after a few conversations you slowly start to understand what the people are saying.

Get In

Tobago has its own airport, at the south of the island. It receives flights from Port of Spain, several other Caribbean islands, and from London via BA scheduled flights. There are also charter flights from Europe. The small departure lounge can get congested when the flights to Europe are leaving in the early evening.

The area around the airport is a typical tourist zone and you may wonder why you made the journey. But don't be put off. The rest of the island is a delight.

Taxis, mainly consisting of ancient American cars, are available at the airport.

Get around

Vehicles can be rented, although the quality can sometime leave much to be desired. Driving around Tobago basically consists of taking the coastal road that circles the island, together with two or three east-west roads.

Wildlife

Golf

The Mt. Irvine Bay Golf Course is said to be Tony Jacklin's favourite (remember him?!). It is a challenging wweave in and out of coconut palms.

Beaches

Fishing

Diving

Eat

A lot of cafes and restauants don't take European debit/credit cards, even if they have the sign in the window. The main problem seems to be with HSBC cards.

Fish Pot [1] in Pleasant Prospect. Nice and casual, reasonable prices for quality food. Friendly and helpful staff. Fish is brought in from sea every morning, and their Irish and Rastafarian chef. Run by locals and internationals, and the menu reflects it. They take Credit cards, as well as euro's, pounds and US dollars.
