Tobago Beaches are among the most beautiful in the Caribbean. Tobago is Trinidad’s little sister. Both form a prosperous nation called Trinidad Tobago.

Some are on the Atlantic Ocean side and feature dark gray volcanic sands while the ones on the calmer Caribbean side are surrounded by pristine white coral sands and palm trees providing the most necessary shade.
