If you had to be shipwrecked on an island, this would be the place for it.  It’s said that the novel, Robinson Crusoe, was based on the island of Tobago, but you have to wonder why he wanted to leave.

Only 43 kilometres long and 12 kilometres wide, Tobago is the smaller of two islands that comprise the nation of Trinidad and Tobago in the southern Caribbean. 

Known for its wide sandy beaches and aquamarine bays, Tobago is an idyllic place to kick back and live in languor.  The attitude is decidedly mellow.  It welcomes tourists, without being touristy. 

And it was a perfect winter escape for me.  I’m already longing to go back.

I visited two of Tobago’s most popular beaches on the southern tip of the island:  Store Bay and Pigeon Point.  Here’s how they stack up.

Warm aquamarine water?  Check.

    Lovely. I live on the island of Trinidad and I’m due to visit Tobago again later in the year. I will be staying in Crown Point so Store Bay and Pigeon Point are definitely on my list.
