Experience Trinidad and Tobago: what to see, what to do
The two islands of Trinidad and Tobago make up one of the most prosperous countries in the Caribbean. Tourism isn’t even the country’s biggest industry, leaving plenty of unspoilt beaches and mountaintops to explore for the intrepid traveller.
Essentials in Trinidad and Tobago
Beaches: There’s no shortage of beaches to visit on both islands. In Trinidad there top picks are Maracas, Tyrico, Las Cuevas, Mayaro and Quinam. In Tobago, try Pigeon Point, Store Bay, Bucco and Canoe Bay.
Bucco Reef: This natural coral reef off the northern coast of Tobago is really stunning. Take a glass-bottom boat from Pigeon Point or Store Bay to see the reef up close. Some tours even let you get out and swim!
Turtles: Every year around Easter the island’s leatherback sea turtles go to Mathura Beach in Trinidad to lay their eggs. The turtles are endangered so it’s important to be careful when visiting the beach at this time of the year so as not to disturb them.
