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.

This huge bay includes smaller bays, such as Hermitage Bay, Cambleton Bay and Pirate's Bay. Charlotteville boasts a beautiful mile-long (1.6km) sandy beach with good swimming. Chief amongst these smaller bays is Pirate's Bay. This gorgeous little bay features multi-coloured sand and offers some of the best snorkeling on the island. Two other bays worth mentioning are Dead Man's Bay and Waterfall Bay Both are remote and small and the beach virtually disappears at high tide.
