The islands are known not only for their beautiful sandy beaches, but also for their carnivals.

Whether you are looking for a tropical holiday destination, where you can relax and enjoy the coral sandy beaches or seeking a top sports destination, Tobago has it all!

Pigeon Point or Pigeon Point Heritage Park is considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and not without a reason.

It is a long and wide beach with fantastic white sand and amazing clear blue waters. It is located at the south end of the island and it is very popular among windsurfers and kiters. The ideal time for kitesurfing here is from December through April, when constant winds blow between 12 to 20 knots/22.2 to 37 kph. The site accommodates practitioners of all experience levels. The ideal period for beginners and intermediate kiters is from August to December, at low tide, as the water is very smooth and shallow.
