Picture a hammock sagging lazily between two palm trees that offer shade on an otherwise sun-bleached, white-sand beach. Add in the sound of the waves gently lapping on the shore, and you have an idea of what it is like taking holidays in Tobago.
New arrivals on the island generally can't help but get the gorgeous white sand between their toes at the earliest opportunity. But the smart colonial houses and impossibly perfect beaches are only part of why the destination pulls people back time and time again. The gentle beat of the stunning Caribbean is synonymous with a laidback vibe, and you'll feel the warmth and welcome from the moment you set foot off the boat that brings you from Trinidad's Piarco International Airport (POS).
If you enjoy shopping, meanwhile, you'll also be drawn to some of the fabulous crafts in the small shops that squirrel themselves away from the crowds. There are some exquisite pieces of hand-made art waiting to be picked up, bought and loved as a treasured memory of a special place. And if you're an active type, there's a whole world of water sports, such as deep-sea game fishing and reef diving, for you to enjoy. Just don't forget to earmark some time for lying on the beach doing nothing at all.
Food, like relaxation, is an important part of life here, and the restaurants reflect that passion with some truly sumptuous dishes. Make sure you don't leave the island without trying roti - a local curry that reflects the rich diversity of culture that makes this island what it is. The good news for anyone on a budget is also that Tobago is a land blessed with some luxury hotels, many of them in resorts such as Pigeon Point and the capital, Scarborough, that don't cost the Earth.
So make sure you don't let well-priced Tobago holidays pass you by; use the TravelSupermarket search tool to grab a great holiday deal.
*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.
ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
