Granby Point


Along the Windward Coast you will find Granby Point, a colonial fort named after the Marquis of Granby, a hero of the Seven Years War. Below the fort lies an enjoyable beachfront and playground area.


First Historical Café and Bar

This is a colourful place near Granby Point where you can enjoy a drink, a snack and a little local history and culture.



Scarborough


The capital town of Tobago is quite lively and worth a visit – especially to enjoy the busy colourful market (particularly on a Friday or Saturday) where everything seems to be on offer! The Island’s main and only shopping mall is nearby with a pharmacy, bank, post office, cinema and shops offering a variety of goods including the local foodstuffs, herbal medicines and remedies. The Ferry between Tobago and Trinidad (Daily – Monday to Fridays & Sundays) docks in Lower Scarborough where you will also find the bus terminal.



Sightseeing in Scarborough


Fort King George

Named after King George 3 in 1804 it is perhaps Tobago’s best preserved historical site with gun enplacements, barracks and officers’ mess. The Fort is located in beautifully manicured grounds with a military cemetery and chapel.

The Tobago Museum is in the Barrack Guard House of the Fort and has artifacts from Tobago’s early history and military relics and documents from the Colonial days are also on display.



The Botanical Gardens


Near to the Fort you will find The Botanical Gardens, over 17 acres of majestic tropical trees, shrubs and exotics like the African Tulip. Away from the hustle and bustle of Scarborough town, you will enjoy captivating views over the town from here.




Arriving back at Crown Point there is the opportunity to fly to Trinidad – a complete contrast to its sister Tobago - from Crown Point International Airport.
It must be admitted that Trinidad is not your typical Caribbean tourist island, being a fascinating mixture of business and industry and of a cosmopolitan character.
It is fast moving, festive, throbbing and has been described as one big all-day”party”.


Eco Adventures

We have mentioned Eco in Tobago in our “island” area but for nature lovers there are a number of Nature Reserves to visit around the island such as Grafton Caledonia Wildlife Santuary, Cuffle River Nature Retreat, the Tobago Forest Reserve and the Genesis Nature Park.
We will be happy to provide you with further information on the wealth of
places magnificent Tobago has to offer.
