Englishman's Bay Favorites
Favorite thing: Englishman's Bay is one of the 'not-to-miss' places in Tobago that you can find in every tour guide. ironically it is popular because of the secluded and rarely attended beach. And it is true!
Fondest memory: We reached there about 5 in the afternoon and the only noise we could hear was very strong waves hitting the shore. We couldn't even wal without being flooged up to our knees.
one little shop was closed and looked like never opened for weeks. Two fishermens throwing lines into the sea from the beach.
We had a romantic walk, feeling a little bit sad because we know the next day we was leaving this beautiful island... But we will come back there for sure.
