The vast majority of visitors to Tobago are seeking holidays with lots of sun, sea and sand. Tobago has an abundance of both and no other Caribbean island boasts quite the same range of largely deserted beaches, varying from the pristine white coral sands of the Caribbean coast to the dark volcanic sands of the Atlantic coast.

Please keep in mind that nude and/or topless sunbathing is illegal in Tobago. This practice is often considered highly offensive to the local population. Please also remember to cover-up when leaving the beach.

Back Bay is a quiet secluded beach that attracts large numbers of body surfers and surfers. Access to the beach involves a bit of a scramble but is worth it in the end. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful beaches on Tobago, but due to the isolated nature of the beach, its best to go with a group.
