  • visit absolutely Pigeon Point...

    Tobago’s premier tourist beach with its white sand, coconut palms, shallow turquoise sea and pretty jetty. Price to get in is $2US but the bar is cheap, as is the food. High-quality craft stalls abound. Recliners are available and there are palm-covered huts with seats and tables for shade. Glass bottomed boat trips to the reef leave from here....

    I met up with Island_Babe (she lives here, and has a page on VT) - but everyone here is so outgoing that it is incredibly easy to make lots of new friends - I did! The photo shows scurly and Island_Babe together, after we had met up at Maracas Bay beach one Sunday (lots of Trinis go there at the weekends). This is the closest beach to Port of...

    ... well must... as far as local beers are concerned you can either drink Carib or you can drink a 'MAN'S BEER' (- as it is advertized) called Stag.Personally I prefer Stag since it is not as light as a Carib. When I say light I don't mean alcohol wisecause both have about the same percentage.Nevertheless, I do like my share of Caribs once in a...

    Well, when visiting Tobago you definitely have to take the busride from Scarborough to Charlotteville. Wow, what a ride! It's a real rollercoaster. I couldn't believe people on the bus were actually reading a book or even sleeping, while I was holding on to my seat with both hands! Anyway, if you're in the neighbourhood: Take the ride!

  • Trinidad and Tobago are only...

    Trinidad and Tobago are only just off the coast of Venezuela, yet they share little of the culture of South America. The people are a cosmopolitan mix of African, East Indian, Chinese and European. Beach tourism has been developed on the smaller island of Tobago. Both islands offer a wildlife sanctuary. Together the islands have more species of...

    To enjoy a nice vacation in Trinidad, take the opportunity to visit the Maracas Beach or maybe you can stay at the exquisite Maracas Bay Hotel. I just love this place for the various mountain range, the moment getting up early in the mornings and walking up those massive steep streets and looking over the horizon. The hospitality of the...

It is definetely...

    Try all the local food - Shark and Bake, Roti, Doubles and the great variety of fruit available ! One thing I miss the most about Trinidad is the atmosphere - Always charged with excitement and if you want to visit the town that does not sleep, try St. James ( Near Port of Spain )

    Must drive or be driven to Maracas, Las Cuevas, Blanchisseuse Beaches. Savour the local beach cuisine: eat Shark and Bake, Polouri, and drink coconut water straight out of the coconut. Turtle watching at Grand Riviere. Most fascinating thing to watch this huge ungainly creature delivering her eggs into the beach. Awesome!
