Tobago, Caribbean

Tobago offers a superb Caribbean windsurfing holiday or kitesurfing holiday with magnificent unspoilt beaches, vast uncrowded sailing lagoon, flat water and some wave spots on the reef. The wind flow over the island can create perfect conditions on either side giving so much variety. If you are looking for a location for mixed abilities or families Pigeon Point offers a beautiful sandy beach, swaying palm trees, shallow water close to shore and centre with bar and restaurant next door.

Sailing Spot and Conditions

On a good day, mainly from December through to June, the conditions are some of the finest in the Caribbean. At Pigeon Point it is protected by Bucco Reef which lies up to one and half miles off one of the best beaches in the Caribbean. Inside the vast lagoon, the flat, crystal clear, shallow water is a sailor's dream. This is ideal for beginners or speed sailing. On the outside, when the conditions all come together, the swells can rival those in some of the best locations in the world.

For kiting, the island has several spots. Lambo Beach for beginners and Bucco Lagoon for improvers and for practising tricks. For progression and practice, the flatwater inside Bucco reef at Pigeon Point is pure paradise. For the advanced rider, there are many possible locations for kiting when the wind or sea conditions change. On the east of the island is the Atlantic Ocean with shore breaks and waves; on the west is the Caribbean with clear warm flat water.

Culture and Activities
Often twinned with neighbouring island Trinidad, this tiny island republic is one of the most southerly in the Caribbean chain. Tobago is only 26 miles long by 7 miles wide, yet offers visitors much with its unhurried lifestyle, lush tropical scenery and choice of activities. The center of the island provides wonderful trekking terrain through tropical rainforest to spot exotic birds and wild flowers. As a complete contrast, the western edge of the island is low and flat; a classically Caribbean landscape of swaying palms, secluded half-moon bays and white sand beaches. The islanders welcome visitors to this peaceful island. A trip to the Capital, Scarborough, to see the colourful markets or at Carnival with its calypso and steel band is a must.
