Had been to Tobago Cay several times before but never to Petit Tabac. This is where they filmed Johnny Depp being sent there and he escaped on turtles. The island was deserted when we were there and we enjoyed the time. People had built some crude rock piles at one end.

A beautiful and exotic little inhabited island in the middle of the caribbean. Clean, just perfect. A place you must visit if you are in the Grenadines area.

We visited Petit Tabac just yesterday. We spent there the whole afternoon and we were the only people on the Island. Really great place! My children were so excited as it's Jack Sparrow's island so they desperately tried to find anything based on this story. Great spot for snorkeling and pictures. Don't forget to take your shoes if you want... More

Petit Tabac is your stereotypical version of paradise. Sunny skies, water in all shades of blue, white sand, palm trees swaying in the wind and waves crashing into the rocks, it was absolutely beautiful. It took us around 20 minutes to walk the whole way around the island, and it was such a fun little adventure climbing all over the... More

During our visit to the Tobago Cays, we decided to cruise over to Petit Tabac which is the only island that lies outside of the Horseshoe Reef system. Besides being able to boast of being on the island where a scene from the movie "Pirates Of The Caribbean - Curse Of The Black Pearl was filmed, there's really no reason... More
