Sandy Point Beach: Sandy Point Beach features some of the lighter colored sand on the island of Tobago. It is white, verging on tan, and soft to the touch.

A second place to consider is Store Bay. Store Bay is located at the Milford Road and Pigeon Point Road junction, where both meet and dead end just past Castles in the Wind resort.

King Peter's Bay Beach: Almost always deserted these days, this beach was once put to use by pirates and merchant ships in the 18th century thanks to its private nature. Because there are no facilities and the crowd is non-existent, swimmers should air on the side of caution.
