Three kilometers east of Castara on the Northern coastline of Tobago you will find Englishman’s Bay.
Another of Tobago’s most isolated beaches due to the location and the curvy roads.
This bay is located approximately twenty-five kilometers from Scarborough, a forty-five minute drive depending on which route you take.
One would quickly take the coastal Arnos Vale Road from Plymouth, but it is not the fastest way to the northern coastline due to the twist and turns.
The less scenic but faster route is to take the Northside Road up from Scarborough through Moriah.
After you pass Castara there is a spot with a house on a corner where you can get a view of the bay from up high.
Hidden from the road by a thick cover of bush and bamboo the landmarks to find the bay are the blue and white sign, opposite a WASA building.
You may possibly also see a lot of cows along the road that’s when you know you are close.
Making a left-hand turn if you come from Castara onto a gravel track that leads to the beach’s small car park.
On arriving on the bay you will be greeted by a Eula’s Restaurant & Souvenir shop, with food and souvenirs for sale.
There are also chairs for rent at the shop so you can relax, and taking in the cool breeze at the bay.
To the left of the building, there is a little shack on the beach with swings.
A great spot for getting those pictures swinging out over the deep blue waters and pure yellow sand.
The bay is shaded by tall coconut trees and the path to walk the beach is well maintained.
The beach however has a steep incline although the water looks inviting pay attention to the drop-off into the deep.
Also, pay attention to the shallow reefs at some point on the beach.
Overall a well-maintained location to enjoy a day of salt and tanning.
Always remember to keep the trails just as you see them when leaving so others can enjoy the true beauty of it.
