Wonderful quiet little place with two lovely beaches and a few laid back eateries. Yoga on the beach and plenty of spots to just sit and stare. We loved this place!

It's a bit busier and not quite as picturesque as Englishman's Bay (which is just up the coast), but I've always liked the beach/village. The local fishing activity makes this a great bay for spotting rays, as I think they are attracted by the small fish and dissected remains that the fisherman throw back in the water. We've seen more... More

One of the best beaches on Tobago. Great snorkelling from the north end of the beach. I swam with sting rays and manta rays. Plenty of shade.

When we first arrived for our one week stay, my husband was concerned he was going to be bored staying in a remote little village, but then before we knew it we were packing up to go home feeling we could have stayed a little longer. It did not take long to immerse ourselves into the environment. We met and... More

The Northern side of Tobago has better beaches than the South one. Castara is one of them, Englishman and Charlotteville are the other two. Parlatuvier is another small gem, very little mentioned. Castara is a small fisherman village with a charming feeling. Small shops and restaurants with a laid back attitude.

I have visited most beaches throughout Tobago but I finally made it to Castara and was pleasantly surprised. Other reviewers had commented about the location and feel, etc. but I can say this... there is just something about the space that makes it special that cannot be expressed in words. I experienced a wonderful Caribbean sunset as seen in the... More

Castara bay is in a small friendly fishing village on the north-easterly coast of Tobago about 30 minutes drive from the capital, Scarborough. It is renowned for its fish, and there is a fishing facility in the middle of the beach where you can buy fish. Above the bay there is a lookout point with one of the most breathtaking... More
