    St.Giles Islands, off the north tip of Tobago, is a protected breeding-ground for the magnificent Frigatebird.
    You are not allowed to set foot on the islands without permission from the government.
    However we did go around the islands in a small boat.
    We saw many seabirds, sooty terns, red-footed booby, brown noody, white-bellied booby, brown booby, and the magnificent frigatbird.
    There are also some amazng rock formations such as London Bridge.

    St. Giles Islands

    I don't think this area is undiscovered, in fact during WW2 it was the site of an American military radio tower and lookout.
    It is located on the very northern tip of Tobago and not far from Speyside.
    We enjoy driving up to Flagstaff Hill and looking out at the St Giles Islands. This is where the Atlantic meets the Caribbean. Sunsets from here are beautiful and you may see some parrots flying by as they return to their roosting spots.
