Tobago sightseeing: so much to explore

Tobago offers the visitor a wide range of touring options. It’s possible to drive around the island in a single day, but for the best experience, take it slow. History buffs will revel in the island’s historic sites, legacy of the 31 separate occasions Tobago was lost and conquered over the centuries. And even if you just stick to the well-known beaches and tourist sites, there’s still lots to see.
