The beach at Tobago’s Pigeon Point Heritage Park is one of the most beautiful in the Caribbean, noted for its iconic jetty and calm swimming waters. A small admission fee gets you access to the lifeguard-protected beach as well as restaurants serving famous Trini “bake and shark,” vendors selling local handicrafts, showers and bathrooms.
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Tobago’s Main Ridge Forest Reserve is the oldest protected forest reserve in the Western Hemisphere, established in 1776 to protect rainwater supplies for the island.
