The more serene of the siblings, Tobago is home to the oldest protected rainforest in the Western Hemisphere.  It really is the last of the unspoilt Caribbean.  Once you behold her beauty, you will understand why Tobago was Robinson Crusoe's isle - and why our European settlers fought over her ownership more than any other Caribbean island.  This strip of elongated land, just 41 by 14 kilometres, abounds with natural allure - palm-lined beaches, lush rain forests and pristine coral reefs teeming with rich marine life.

Contrasts of rolling hills against wave-beaten shores create a stunning backdrop for the island's unequalled beauty.  The South (Windward) Coast is washed by the dark green, wave-whipped Atlantic and is lined with vibrant fishing villages, while the North (Leeward) Coast provides Tobago with some of its finest beaches.

The eastern landscape of the interior rises steeply into tall peaks and rolling hillocks, providing shelter for the oldest protected forest reserve in the Western Hemisphere.  A perfect complement to bustling Trinidad, Tobago is a true jewel of the Caribbean Sea, whose sparkle will live in your memory long after you have left her shores.
