"Windward coast" Scarborough by kyoub

Scarborough Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 16 photos


Scarborough, is the capital of Tobago. It is located on the Atlantic or windward side. It is where the cruise ships come into port and where the Trinidad ferries come and go. It is a bustling little city with one-way streets and congested traffic.
Other than visiting Fort King George, on the east side of town, there is not much of interest to see here.

Old coast road

This is a view of the city from the old coast road. This scenic stretch will give you a chance to see crashing waves and stunning Atlantic views. There is a small bay called Little Rocky Bay.

Pros and Cons

    With an old fort and a lighthouse, I think Scarborough could keep me amused for a while! Your accoms looks great. The tropical trees and beach flotsam at Little Rockly Bay reminded me of ones I saw on working trips in Papua New Guinea!

    Nice views...everyone loves a lighthouse, don't they? My city just took over one which will eventually be used for tourists and teaching school children.
