"The resort half of T&T" Top 5 Page for this destination Tobago by DSwede

Tobago Travel Guide: 69 reviews and 152 photos

Please note that this page is dedicated to more of the island of Tobago as a whole and to Crown Point.

The airport is in Crown Point (south west corner of Tobago).
Honestly speaking from a visitor's point of view this is where you want to be anyway. The capital city of Scarborough does not particularly cater to visitors.

Crown Point will have all the hotels, restaurants, tour & dive shops, car rentals, etc.

There are a few small towns worthy of stopping at, so it would be recommended to rent a car and circle the island. The entire island can be circumnavigated in a day.

The upper northeast coast by Speyside is quite refreshing.

Trinidad and Tobago are two distinct islands, but they do share a common culture. There is a mixture of religions (Christian, Hindu, Muslim, etc.) and a diverse ethnic mixture, mostly of African and Indian decent.

Tobago, of the two islands, is far more concentrated in the African and Christian populations, with large Rastafarian communities.

Of the two, Tobago is more laid back, operating on a slower pace. It does have a few supporting industries, but the people predominantly depend on tourism.

But for some more general thoughts on my month long stay in T&T or more specifically Trinidad, please feel free to stop by my Trinidad & Tobago page.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Relaxed days on sunny beaches
  • Cons:Outside if Crown Point, you will likely need your own transportation.
  • In a nutshell:Diving and beaches are decent. Time best spent liming away watching the sunset.
