Either trek down or anchor in the wide bay. Here a pirate ship was fired upon by a British warship.. the bodies floating to adjacent Bloody Bay..which was named after the event. Peaceful, but no great snokelling.

Loved the serenity of this beautiful beach at Pirate's Bay. It was a trek down many steps to the beach and well worth it! A must see in Tobago...

We dropped our anchor close to pirates bay so with the dingi it was no distant to visit. It is an exzellent area for relaxing but also a start point for snorkelling. There are reefs on each site on the beach this has to be experienced. For barbecue SonSon is a good adress, his wife's cooking very good side dishes.

The Pirate's Bay here is a small off-shoot from the main bay at Charlottesville. You certainly have to want to get there from the village. It's either a long climb on a narrow road, or a challenging, scary drive uo the narrow trail. We took the latter route. The view from the end of the road is spectacular, then you... More

Went snorkeling at this beautiful beach. There's so much to see here ... lots of coral and sea life, especially near the rocks ...

OK - we thought Englishman's Bay was about as good as it could get on Tobago........ until we went here! I'd already researched Pirate's Bay so knew about the 135? steps after a hairy drive, therefore elected to drive into Charlotteville and pay a local fisherman a few $/€s to take us round the point. Ask anyone, but we used... More

Love love love this little bay!! You have to get a boat to get here, so there are not many people. You can also hike but its quite long walk through the jungle. This is the best place to watch a sunset in Tobago! Truly stunning
