Flights to Tobago

This lesser-known Caribbean island has a natural, unspoilt charm

Just 26 miles long and 10 miles wide, Tobago may be small, but it's certainly perfectly formed. As soon as you step off your flight to Tobago, you’ll be in awe of its beauty. And unlike some of its more glitzy neighbours, it's got a relaxed feel that will make home, work and real life feel a million miles away.

It's a natural wonder, too, with a rainforest that's been protected for more than 300 years, pelicans that dive for fish as you swim, and beaches so stunning you'd think they were painted. 

Discover Tobago

Get up close to nature

Make like David Attenborough and hike through Tobago's rainforest with a local expert guide, or hire a jeep and explore the island safari style. Either way, you won't believe your eyes. Get more tips for exploring Tobago on our blog.

Dive among the wreckage

The diving in Tobago is second to none. Explore the bridge, deck and cabins of a wrecked ship, and spot manta rays and blacktip sharks. Then head back to one of these great places to stay.

Ready, steady, goat!

One of the quirkier highlights of the Tobago year is the Goat and Crab Racing Festival in Buccoo, where the jockeys run alongside their somewhat unusual charges. Afterwards, check out the local street food.

Super Sunday

It may not be a late night island but you can still have a great time. Head for Buccoo's Sunday School street festival to eat, drink and dance alongside the locals. 

Feel the heat

If you're heading to Tobago in February and want to crank up the pace for a day or two, pop over to neighbouring Trinidad for one of the world’s best carnivals, the Trinidad Carnival.
