Sandy Point Beach

Just a stones throw away from the Arthur Napoleon Raymond Robinson Airport is Sandy Point Beach. If getting beach side is your top priority, this beach is so close that you can hop off the plane, grab your luggage, and go -- though you may want to drop your stuff off at your hotel first!

Positioned in Crown Point, Sandy Point Beach is on the South West coast of Tobago. You should consider dropping by whether or not you're staying particularly close by. Perhaps Sandy Point Beach is a favorite among travelers because it's a beach which rarely gets too crowded, even though its not far from some of Trinidad and Tobago's best hotspots.

How to Access The Beach
After navigating some of the airport's back roads, you will find Sandy Point Beach at the end of a dirt road that has been neatly carved through a clearing of trees.

Amenities and Ambiance

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. Meanwhile, the waters are a stunning aquamarine that become deeper and darker the farther offshore you go.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business.

Since Sandy Point Beach is of course found within an area that sees many visitors, you might need to hunt to get a spot!
