We ate hot bread from the clay oven with hot oxtail soup from a lady selling from her car. Exactly what you need in 30 degree heat on a beach sitting in a rented deckchairs. You can take the girl out of Yorkshire........

Castara Bay is where to go to get the real Caribbean vibe, a traditional fishing village where the tourists blend in with the locals even helping to haul in the catch if the day. We loved our holiday based at this village. Lots of places...More

Visiting Tobago? Come to this beautiful beach with welcoming locals and great vibe. There are plenty of restaurants to visit. We couldn’t find parking when we first arrived and then realised it was over the bridge by the supermarket. Our first day in Tobago and...More

I loved Castara. Stayed at Toad Heights and loved the views. If you want to swim, lounge, eat, walk, and generally kick back in a tiny corner of paradise, go to Castara. Don’t expect resort style amenities. Just be prepared for nature and good food...More

Lovely beach but a bit run down. Spent a couple of hours here but not a lot to do. Wanted to visit a beach bar but the weather although very hot the beach was not accessible as there was 10ft swells.

This is a very small village with not too many tourists. The locals are mostly fishing or run small businesses. The roosters are very actively singing all hours of the night. The water is supposed to be generally calm and swimmable but we hit a...More

-This is a really lovely beach and little village, well worth the hair raising drive to get there. The waves vary a lot, sometimes quite high and other times not. Nice for a stroll

My only qualm about this Bay is the parking facilities or lack thereof. Otherwise this stretch of beach is divine. There are manta rays in this bay - I saw one June 2016 (I always come here everytime I visit Tobago). There are proper toilet...More
