The best places to enjoy a wedding or honeymoon in Tobago
Posted Sep 02, 2020
With beautiful palm-fringed beaches, lush rainforest, serene retreats and sensational sunsets, Tobago is made for romance. The Caribbean island is perfect for weddings, honeymoons, anniversaries and vow renewals, with many hotels offering tailor-made packages for couples of most religious persuasions.
You can tie the knot almost anywhere and, unlike the production-line weddings of some other Caribbean islands, the day is yours alone. The beauty of this unspoilt island is that commercialism has not yet set in and everything can be arranged exactly as you would like it, just for you. Here we suggest some romantic spots, from historic sites with amazing views to sensational beaches and rainforest gems.
Fort King George
The history and heritage of Tobago is evident all around the island with forts, canons, and monuments that pay tribute to the many battles fought over the centuries. Numerous forts and their remains cling to the clifftops, commanding spectacular views out to sea. One of the best-preserved is the British-built Fort King George near Scarborough, dating back to 1777.
The views here are absolutely amazing: Tyrell’s Bay, with Little Tobago and Goat Island to one side, and to the other Man-O-War Bay, Booby Island, Cambleton Battery and, further out, Sisters Rocks. This superb vantage point was once used by British and French soldiers to spot approaching ships.
We like to think of this double rainbow as a sign of better days ahead🌈 For now, we hope the rolling waves of our unspoilt beaches provide you with some comfort until we meet again. 🎥: @simplytinielle . . #DreamingOfTobago #DreamingBeyond #TobagoBeyond #101ReasonsTobago #WeWelcomeYourReturn #OneCaribbean #CaribbeanDreaming
This secluded crescent-shaped beach on the leeward coast is considered one of the island’s most beautiful. Its white sands are edged with a thick tangle of rainforest and the bay feels wonderfully remote – and there is a chance you could have it all to yourself.
