Plymouth Beach

A quiet beach along the west coast of Tobago despite it's well populated surroundings, Plymouth Beach gives vacationers a chance to enjoy the sun, sand, and surf in seclusion.

Located near the middle of Plymouth, 1.7 miles north-northeast of Black Rock, Plymouth Beach is on the West coast of Tobago. You might think about stopping by regardless of whether you are staying in the vicinity. Vacationers who want a somewhat serene and secluded beach, that's also not too far from the town's amenities may really like the middle ground found at Plymouth Beach. Generally, it's not an overly popular part of the coast, but it's not totally devoid of people either.

How to Access The Beach
The road that leads to Plymouth Beach, off Amose Vale Road is paved, with some gravely areas along the way.

Amenities and Ambiance

Plymouth Beach enjoys tan colored sand and aquamarine waters. While some areas are more leafy than others, verdant trees line the shore.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot.
