Tobago Holidays

Tropical island with rich biodiversity

If you’re looking for island charm, laidback vibes and a warm Caribbean welcome, Tobago should be top of your must-visit list.

With unspoilt landscapes bursting with bright green colours and tropical vistas, one of the best ways to see the island’s natural beauty is on wheels; hire a bike or car and explore the island at your own pace while enjoying the island’s captivating backdrops. A stay in Tobago is all about getting back to nature - head into the rainforest and take a dip at the picturesque Argyle Falls, grab your binoculars and try and discover over 220 different species of bird or put on your swim suit and head across the waters to Buccoo Reef and admire the coral and vibrantly coloured marine life. We recommend your Tobago holiday isn't to not be on all inclusive, the island has bustling towns and quaint little villages all passionate about their food so venture into town to find a street food vendor or selling delicious Caribbean delicacies such as roti and doubles and once you’re full, head to one of the beautiful beaches for a spot of sun-worshipping, or take a dip in the turquoise waters to take advantage of the fantastic snorkelling available; you might even spot a turtle or two.

Tobago is perfectly paired with Antigua if you’re on the hunt for even more Caribbean paradise. With white sandy beaches accompanied by lively karaoke bars and bustling restaurants, it offers the perfect contrast to those lazy Tobago days.

Top Tips from our Experts

Omkar

Destination Specialist

"The Tobagans love to party with many national holidays throughout the year. Join Sunday School down at Buccoo where a steel drum band play whilst you enjoy a Carib beer and dance with a loved one or friend". 

Martyn

Destination Executive

"Tobago is naturally beautiful and rich in wildlife compared to neighbouring islands. I would recommend hiring a car and exploring at your own leisure making stops along the way to capture the landscapes and wildlife".
