Although one of Tobago's more pristine and less crowded beaches, Pirate's Bay has the rougher waters typical of most northeastern beaches on the island.

It's a beautiful place to just relax by the water unbothered. The beach is quiet probably since it's quite a hike to get there. But the hike is worth it. Beautiful and serene.

It's a beautiful bay best accessed by boat. We climbed up the neighbouring hill to get a view from above. We didn't see anybody on the beach.

Either trek down or anchor in the wide bay. Here a pirate ship was fired upon by a British warship.. the bodies floating to adjacent Bloody Bay..which was named after the event. Peaceful, but no great snokelling.

Loved the serenity of this beautiful beach at Pirate's Bay. It was a trek down many steps to the beach and well worth it! A must see in Tobago...
