Tobago Holidays

The beauty of a holiday in Tobago is that, while it may often be overlooked in favour of the vibrancy and excitement of Trinidad, it has been left relatively unspoilt. Hidden within the vast and dense forests are newly forged foot trails which wind towards enchanting waterfalls. Coastal areas mirror the rustic integrity of the forests and remain beautifully unrefined, soft and peaceful.

Perfect for couples looking for secluded romance, Tobago is bountiful in isolated beach spots if you don’t mind exploring. The island can be enjoyed just as much from out at sea, and a boat can help you reach some of the more secluded spots. Local cuisine is as heavenly as you would expect from a Caribbean island.

Pure relaxation on your holiday in Tobago

While we provide holidays to over 60 destinations worldwide, it can be difficult to settle on just one location for your holiday, especially in the Caribbean. With Hayes & Jarvis’ multi centre holidays you can indulge in more than one holiday destination in one trip. We are delighted to share our 65 years of experience and passion with you to create a holiday that is as unique as you are.

Things to do in Tobago

Tobago is so special, you’ll be raving about it once you’ve visited. One half of the Trinidad and Tobago nation, French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau once named its Buccoo Reef the third most spectacular on earth. Today, many people call its vibrant carnival, the greatest party on the planet. With mangroves, inviting waterfalls and an unspoilt virgin rainforest, eco-travellers are in their element here.

  • Buccoo Reef & the Nylon Pool

    Tobago is known around the globe as a spectacular diving site. Setting sail from Pigeon Point Heritage Park, Buccoo Reef is home to beautiful South Atlantic coral and more than 600 species of tropical fish. The most infamous of all dive sites is Nylon Pool, a shallow water dive site with crystal clear waters. From here you can explore the coral beds and the populations of jewel coloured fish that live among them.

  • Argyle Falls

    Concealed by the lush greenery of tropical forest is Argyle Falls. Towering at 175ft tall, it is Tobago’s highest waterfall, which cascades down over three levels. You will reach the falls via a 20 min hike through the jungle, and those with keen eyes will be able to spot plenty of birds and colourful butterflies along the trail. A reward for the pilgrimage is a dip into the cool pools – or perhaps you would prefer to dive in if you are brave enough.

  • Pigeon Point Heritage Park

    Situated on the southwestern coast, Pigeon Point Heritage Park is a large nature reserve home to Pigeon Point Beach. Explore the protected natural spectacles and wildlife that call this place home, it's the perfect way to spend your day. Enjoy sunbathing on the award-winning beach, take a boat trip to Buccoo Reef and the Nylon Pool then head back for lunch and finish your afternoon with more sunbathing or a swim in the waters. Entrance fees apply $20TTD per person (subject to change).

  • Wildlife

    With stunning forests and waterfalls located at the centre, nature reserves dotted across it, and reefs located off the shores it is no wonder an abundance of wildlife like to call Tobago their home. Nature lovers will be in their element; take a pair of binoculars to view the many species of birds singing in the trees, pack a camera to capture the turtles slowly sliding across the beaches or head underwater to view the marine life at Buccoo Reef.

    Destination Specialist

    "The Tobagans love to party with many national holidays throughout the year. Join Sunday School down at Buccoo where a steel drum band play whilst you enjoy a Carib beer and dance with a loved one or friend".

    Destination Manager

    "Tobago is naturally beautiful and rich in wildlife compared to neighbouring islands. I would recommend hiring a car and exploring at your own leisure making stops along the way to capture the landscapes and wildlife".

Frequently Asked Questions

Beaches in Tobago have soft white sand and are known for being less crowded than other Caribbean islands. For example, Englishman’s Bay is very secluded with no facilities while others are privately owned and kept in good condition by hotel resorts. Public beaches like Store Bay in Crown Point are busier and are popular for their beach bars and facilities.
