Smaller sister to Trinidad, Tobago is a tranquil sanctuary of unspoiled natural beauty with a traditional rustic charm.
An island that is still largely undeveloped, it will appeal to those wishing to step back in time and appreciate the simple things in life, such as a romantic sunset, a delicate satisfying meal or a barefoot beach walk with a loved one. Just 116 square miles in size and situated only thirty miles from the coast of Venezuela, Tobago is home to the oldest protected rainforest in the Caribbean, which boasts a rich array of indigenous plant and animal life. Experience a traditional and relaxed Caribbean way of living here; make the most of the peace and serenity or hike through the Tobago Forest Reserve up to Fort King George for tremendous bird-watching opportunities – keep your eyes peeled for the Scarlet Ibis, the national bird of Trinidad and Tobago. The snorkelling and scuba diving presents a wonderful chance to observe rare and colourful fish thriving in their beautiful natural environment, while turtle nesting season is between March and July and is a very special sight to behold. Tobago is peaceful, scenic and enjoys a markedly relaxed pace of life: it is the ideal destination for an authentic Caribbean experience.
