Our picks for Tobago’s 3 best beaches

There is more to Tobago than beaches, but it can be difficult to summon the will to make that discovery, such is the attraction of the island’s sea and sand. The cluster of hotels and resorts around Tobago’s southern tip reflect the lure of calm, clear water and the lasting pleasure of lying on a soft pillow of sand. The coastline gets a little more rugged as you head north, but no less beautiful. Whether your preference is for sunning, swimming, surfing, snorkelling, diving, sailing, even dragon boat racing: there’s a beach here for you. Here are some favourites
