The unspoilt island of Tobago is the island for you if you find the natural world endlessly fascinating, you’d rather palm trees dominated the landscape than high-rise resorts, and you’re looking for a slower pace of life, where you can put down the iPhone and pick up a delicious rum punch.
Tobago is thriving with wildlife, both on land and in the waters that frame the island like a cerulean halo. Hundreds of species of bird inhabit the trees and skies, whilst the protected virgin rainforest is home to
armadillos, wild boar, opossums, green iguanas and caimans. It may be small, but Tobago certainly measures up to some of the most wildlife-rich places on the planet. It’s also home to the famous Little Tobago, a small island off the coast, where Sir David Attenborough filmed rare birds.
There are plenty of reefs to take advantage of here, so whether you’re a first-time diver or an experienced professional, you can explore the numerous crevices and caves and the creatures that lurk within, including groupers, lobsters and moray eels, not to mention the humongous turtles! Most resorts have their own diving centre and there are excellent diving centres around the island, too, that will offer complimentary pickups and drop offs at your chosen hotel.
If you’re looking to get away from it all and experience an island that lingers, lost in time, not changing with the rest of the world, then Tobago is for you.
