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.

A very nice and quite beach. The road to go there, by car is very hmmm hard to drive I'd say...but u can walk. The last few hundred meters will be to walk anyway, with a step stair but defenetely worth it!

The 100 steps to go down was a bit perilous but the views were stunning. with little foot traffic and tucked neatly in the country side, the waters were calm and welcoming. definitely will return.
