There is a beach with all of the stereotypical Caribbean amenities — the swaying coconut trees, the bone-white sand, the sparking aquamarine water — and it resides in southwest Tobago. If you haven't picked a resort near Pigeon Point, just about everyone says you need to make a special trip to this beach for at least a couple of hours of beach time.
If there's a drawback, it would be this: Pigeon Point charges a minimal entry fee to enjoy its beautiful shores, and considering there are Tobagonian and Caribbean beaches to visit for free, it could be all too tempting to pass up a day lounging on this one. If you do decide to spend the cash to visit Pigeon Point, also consider taking a snorkel tour of the nearby Buccoo Reef.
Admission at Pigeon Point is $1.50 USD for children and $3 USD for adults. An additional fee applies for beach chair and umbrella rental, but washrooms and beach huts are available free of charge. If you plan on spending multiple days at the beach, consider purchasing a weekly pass, which costs $8 USD for children and $16 USD for adults. The beach is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
