Other Beaches

Vacationers looking for a beach that's right for them will have plenty of other choices on Tobago besides Plymouth Beach.

You may also want to try King Peter's Bay Beach, where there's usually lots of activity. It is located three and a half miles to the northeast. If it's a bit of peace and quiet you're after, Mt. Irvine Beach is an area secluded from lots of tourists and buildings. It is located a brief car or taxi trip away.

Another option worth considering is Great Courland Bay, located a half mile to the south west. Great Cortland Bay, with its long sandy beach and populated area, is a favorite on Tobago for both tourists and locals who gravitate to the shore to play in the bright blue waters and watch for nesting sea turtles.

While the area offers plenty of picturesque views and exciting attractions, a trip to Plymouth Beach could end up a family favorite.
