An Introduction to Tobago

 

The more serene of two islands, Tobago is home to the oldest protected rainforest in the Western Hemisphere. It really is the last of the unspoilt Caribbean. Once you behold her beauty, you will understand why Tobago was Robinson Crusoe's isle - and why European settlers fought over her ownership more than any other Caribbean island. This strip of elongated land, just 41 by 14 kilometres, abounds with natural allure - palm-lined beaches, lush rain forests and pristine coral reefs teeming with rich marine life.


Contrasts of rolling hills against wave-beaten shores create a stunning backdrop for the island's unequalled beauty. The South (Windward) Coast is washed by the dark green, wave-whipped Atlantic and is lined with vibrant fishing villages, while the North (Leeward) Coast provides Tobago with some of its finest beaches.


In the main, the eastern landscape of the interior rises steeply into tall peaks and rolling hillocks, providing shelter for the oldest protected forest reserve in the Western Hemisphere. A perfect complement to bustling Trinidad, Tobago is a true jewel of the Caribbean Sea, whose sparkle will live in your memory long after you have left her shores.

 

The best way to journey to another world is not by space shuttle, but by scuba diving - and Tobago has some of the best dive locations you've ever seen.


Whatever the shape or size of your underwater fantasy, Tobago's waters are teeming with a wide range of marine treasures for an unforgettable dive experience. Come satisfy your desire for crystal clear waters filled with a lush array of underwater flora and fauna. Meander with pleasure among steadfast sea rods and hard and soft coral - including rare species of cup coral, red-polyp octo-coral and the world's largest known brain coral, measuring 12 feet high and 16 feet across.


This is a great underwater wonder that has to be seen to be believed! You'll feel dwarfed by its sheer scope and magnificence.


When you've had your fill of these, explore and uncover the mysteries of an abundance of rocky canyons and deep and shallow caves populated with breathtaking varieties of barracudas, dolphins, whale sharks, turtles, stingrays, orange ball anemones and porpoises. Oh - and for the dance of your life, take a swirl through the waters with an ever-gentle Manta Ray.
