There are many beaches in Tobago to choose from – Pigeon Point and Store Bay are the popular ones in the main tourism hot spot of Crown Point. If you’re looking for somewhere less crowded then we recommend one of the beaches in the North. Castara and English Man’s Bay are two of our favourite spots.
But if you want an ultra private beach then our nearest beach, Turtle Bay, is the best option. The walk takes no more than about 7 minutes, and it is well worth it. You will almost always have this beach to yourselves, and it offers wonderful swimming and an untouched reef for snorkeling. At certain times of the year, usually in between April and August, Leatherback Turtles come to lay their eggs on this beach, particularly at night.
The nearby ‘private’ beach (Turtle bay) provides ideal snorkeling. Turtle Bay offers wonderful swimming and an untouched reef for snorkeling. There’s also amazing snorkeling at the famous Arnos Vale beach, just 12 minutes’ walk away from the villa.
We provide complimentary use of snorkeling gear at the villa. Our gear is top-of-the-line National Geographic equipment and we can all sizes.
The little path that goes from the Villa to Culloden makes for a beautiful nature walk. You will be able to observe all kinds of birds, lizards, and other animals and a variety of flora fauna. Before starting the ascent to Culloden you will cross a small river with a natural spring.
The village of Culloden is small and secluded and about as untouched by tourism as they get in Tobago. CJ will be able to tell you a lot more about it and even give you a guided tour if you wish. He is very knowledgeable.
The award-winning, Mt. Irvine Bay Golf Course is an 18-hole course carved out from 127 acres of an old sugar estate. Established since 1968, the course is set within a gently rolling countryside along Tobago’s northwest coastline, and features an abundance of coconut trees and breathtaking views of the sea.
Want to play a few rounds but don’t want to travel with all of your equipment? No worries, you can rent clubs and other equipment at the course’s golf shop. Caddies and carts can be provided as well. Just let us know what you want and we will call ahead and make the arrangements for you.
Hike to Waterfalls
One of the best waterfall hikes in Tobago is the Argyle Waterfall Trail. This treck is just 15 minutes and can be done by just about anyone. It’s a very easy hike. You can choose from three swimming ponds, one at three different levels. While it is easy to get to the main pond at the base, getting to the other two levels is for the adventurous.
Rent a vehicle and go on your own or get a special guided tour from a local guide.
Experience Rain Forest
Tobago, with its steep hills, rugged trails, verdant forests, and towering waterfalls is a hiker’s and biker’s dream. Tobago is home to the oldest protected forest in the western hemisphere (since 1776).
Deep within this untouched rainforest are winding trails, cascading waterfalls, rugged paths and heart-pumping tracks waiting for the adventurous to explore.
You can rent mountain bikes at very reasonable prices from a number of suppliers or you can book our preferred tour guide Harris, a.k.a. ‘Jaws’ whose energy and enthusiasm alone make the experience worthwhile.
