I loved it. I was there in the evening but the beach is worth it if you can get transportation there. Only get in the shallow part of the water because it's dangerous if you're not a strong swimmer. The shore dips very steep instead...More

This was our most favorite beach - went twice, even though it is a little drive from Canaan. Worth the drive. Quiet, secluded and not many people. Sand is wonderful and the water is perfect. Do not miss this beach. *No facilities except a small...More

We requested a stop here to sunbathe and swim during a tour of the island, after reading about how beautiful it was. The beach definitely lives up to its reputation. The waters are clear and are a range of vivid blues on a sunny day....More

The view from the road on top looking down on Englishman's bay is stunning. Swimming and snorkelling in the bay is just fantastic. Quite and peaceful with clean and clear waters. A must stop and visit if you are in Tobago.

One of the planned day trips for those of us attending a wedding. Terribly long drive across winding countryside to other side of island. Absolutely spectacular beach! Shady if you wanted that too. The undertow is very tricky I was tossed around like a rag...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I'm in Tobago right now and my boyfriend and I plan to hire a car to explore beaches and forts etc. Would love to head to Englishman's Bay but have been out off by reading the odd remark online about thefts and muggings, even here. Is it safe? Where did you park? Are there any vendors there? Any tips would be so welcome.

Too late for you I know, but we found it pretty safe. Parked in free car park by beach and took all valuables with us. Not aware of any problems when we were there.
