Wonderful quiet little place with two lovely beaches and a few laid back eateries. Yoga on the beach and plenty of spots to just sit and stare. We loved this place!

It's a bit busier and not quite as picturesque as Englishman's Bay (which is just up the coast), but I've always liked the beach/village. The local fishing activity makes this a great bay for spotting rays, as I think they are attracted by the small...More

One of the best beaches on Tobago. Great snorkelling from the north end of the beach. I swam with sting rays and manta rays. Plenty of shade.

The Northern side of Tobago has better beaches than the South one. Castara is one of them, Englishman and Charlotteville are the other two. Parlatuvier is another small gem, very little mentioned. Castara is a small fisherman village with a charming feeling. Small shops and...More

Castara is only beginning to be a tourist town so is relatively unaffected by tourism at the current time. There are two beaches, the main beach and Little Bay. The main beach has life guards most of the time and the sea can be a...More

Nice little village with a beautiful beach and a few restaurants. In fact, it's probably the nicest village in Tobago. It's good place to spend a few days and go explore. We stayed 8 nights.
