Tobago is the smaller island of the two island state of Trinidad and Tobago and is known for its wide, palm-lined sandy beaches, biodiverse tropical rainforest and pristine coral reefs teeming with rich marine life. Tobago is totally natural, largely uncommercialised and absolutely stunning.
Framed by mountains, the village-like capital and port, Scarborough, has a colourful central food market and is overlooked by the 18th century ruins of Fort George which now houses the Tobago Museum filled with local art and artifacts.
In 1958 Tobago was chosen as the setting for the Walt Disney Film, Swiss Family Robinson – the filmmakers having fallen in love with the island. Its location, being ninety-nine miles off the coast of Venezuela means that Tobago lies south of the hurricane belt. Tobagonians are friendly and hospitable and take great pride in their island.
