Although one of Tobago's more pristine and less crowded beaches, Pirate's Bay has the rougher waters typical of most northeastern beaches on the island.

From the town it was probably a 20-30 minute walk (depending how fast you walk in the heat) with over 160 steps down to the beach, but worth every step. The beach is very pretty with clear blue sea. Trees at the back of the...More

It's a lovely beach! It's a great beach for natures lovers or lovers. No facilities, but that's ok the scenery compensates. Oh,it has plenty steps to get to the bay, but that's ok still one of my favourite beaches.
