"Tobago's famous reef" Buccoo by kyoub

Bucco Reef

This is a protected park but most of the tourists don't realize that and they have damaged the coral. Daily tours by glass-bottom boat leaves from Pigeon Point and Store Bay letting the tourists see the reef life without getting wet. You can also get off and snorkel if you like.
The tour includes a swim in the Nylon Pool, a warm shallow area in the middle of the lagoon.

A shallow pool in the lagoon with a sandy bottom and clear turquoise water..

    Buccoo sounds like a great little place in which to wind down! Maybe it is time I too just chilled out somewhere in the Caribbean for a week or so. Those tree trunk statues at the Kimme Museum are amazing!

    I am not surprised that Pigeon Point beach is the most photographed. Great shot of Mot-Mot bird and beautiful landscapes and sea views.

    Well, I certainly know who to ask about beach area vacations...you have the market cornered on lovely places to stay, environments for wildlife, superior places to eat, and unique places to shop.

    I would love to see the birds at the wildlife sanctuary and those tree sculptures, and the curried crab and dumplings sound nice! :-)
