The island is a perfect getaway for people looking for a laid-back time, stirred by occasional bouts of activities at the sea. With its beautiful beaches and bays, abundant rainforests, diverse wildlife and rich traditions and cultures, a visit to Tobago is time travel to the decades we’ve left behind.
