Mt Irvine,the most iconic surf spot in tobago and a place where the water is great. There surfing on one side of the bay and on the other side,the water is suitable for snorkeling.

If you want a beach that is not too busy, has great food, and if you enjoy snorkeling, this is the beach to go to. Snorkeling around the southwest end has lots to see around the coral.

Forget the surfing and don a snorkel. Amazing fish within wading distance. A good intro for beginners Great facilities on the beach and a quiet vibe.

Get the greatest catch of the day after a good swim. Beach bar available, great for surfing if the tide is right. Private beach huts are also available and great for a picnic!

Very beautiful situation with facilities, local bar, a couple of food stalls. Lots of surfers, didn't find the waves that big as other reviewers have said but guess it is weather dependent. Very friendly people both locals and other tourists. Went on my own but spent the afternoon in good, chilled company. Walked through the woods to the next beach... More

I love this beach, the other reviews mentioned big waves but I've never experienced any waves at all. The bar is cool, nice music, food and eats. Iwill admit, more shade is needed but all in all my favorite beach is here.
