Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in Tobago your home away from home

Tobago is one of very few holiday destinations in which you can genuinely and entirely relax and rejuvenate, with a truly laid back atmosphere and the archetypal Caribbean landscape which has caused so many people to fall in love with this exotic region. Tobago has refused to allow the concrete hotels and mass tourist facilities that would destroy the island, so Tobago holiday rental is mainly in the form of private villa rentals, holiday homes and delightful beach cottages.

Things to do on holiday in Tobago

The almost empty beaches are a huge attraction for those looking to take holiday accommodation in Tobago. Beach cottage rentals here mean that the dreams of sunbathers from around the world can be made into a reality, with the sun warming the azure seas and powdery sand long into the evenings. Some of the finest beaches (all of which are unspoilt and quiet) are Englishman’s Bay and Mount Irvine. Just off shore, the warm Caribbean waters are home to a massive range of tropical fish and mammals, meaning that the scuba diving and snorkelling in Tobago is hard to beat anywhere in the world. Manta rays, angel fish and millions of species which thrive on the coral reefs can be seen, and without having to worry about dangerous sharks.

The amount of wildlife which lives on the island has gained Tobago the nickname of the “Galapagos of the West Indies”. Boasting the oldest protected rainforest in the western hemisphere, Tobago villas or apartments make an idyllic retreat for nature lovers too. There are many great walks and cycle rides to spectacular view points and spots of magnificent natural beauty in Tobago, and there are many options for bike hire or guided horse rides. There are also two famous golf courses on offer from a Tobago holiday home.

The Trinidad and Tobago Carnival in February is one of the best times to take a villa or apartment in Tobago. Rum and calypso make the perfect accompaniment to the colourful costumes and large, lively crowds which descend on the island for the week.
