Tobago's natural beauty, relaxed atmosphere and easy-going people make it the perfect place for a holiday. The Island is tiny (approx 30 miles by 10 miles), but offers a diverse palette - lush rainforested mountains, winding country roads, sleepy villages, pristine white sandy beaches, some of the world's most spectacular undersea life, exotic flora and fauna and a particularly stunning array of birds.But that is not all, Tobago also excels in chic relaxed social activities, especially dining at the Island's growing list of fine restaurants. There are also weekend parties, for those who bring their dancing shoes, including the popular 'Sunday School' at Buccoo. If you want to add a little extra excitement, there is even a casino on the Island.
Tobago is renowned for its beaches which offer great variety. In the south of the island is Buccoo Reef which is particularly exciting to explore - and there are wrecks for the adventurous. There are many ways to take advantage of the sea and coast. Apart from scuba diving, snorkeling can be done from the beach or off a boat. Sailing and cruising is readily available in Tobago. Further exciting options are to go out in a power boat or a glass-bottomed boat. Other opportunities on the water are hobie cat sailing, water-skiing and wake boarding, kite surfing and kayaking. A range of fishing trips (deep sea fishing, shark fishing, bottom/wreck fishing and fly fishing) are available including the thrill of big game fishing.
One very special feature of Tobago is turtle watching, as the Giant Leatherback Turtle nests on the Stonehaven and Courland beaches between March and August.
There is much to explore inland. Tobago has the world's oldest protected rainforest reserve and many old plantations. There are spectacular waterfalls and a variety of historical sites to visit - particularly old forts from Tobago's past. You will find lots to see on an inland trip.
Bird-watching is a major attraction, with a vast array of beautiful local birds. You may want to go on nature hikes or you may find mountain bike tours more exciting. Another excellent way to see Tobago is on horseback and there are exciting opportunities for horse riding both inland, on the beach and even into the water
