Trinidad and Tobago Cruises
The sister islands of Trinidad and Tobago are situated in the Southern Caribbean, just north-east of Barbados. Famed for their cultural diversity, incredible beaches and colourful carnivals, those who enjoy a Caribbean cruise that stops in Trinidad and Tobago will be delighted at what they have to offer.
Despite their closeness, each island has its own distinctive characteristics and pace; Tobago is more provincial and laid-back, whereas Trinidad is positively buzzing with a vibrant, enthusiastic lust for life. It’s a charming contrast and those who are lucky enough to visit both islands on a cruise holiday will find the experience and diversity something to savour.
There are many things to do for cruisers if visiting Trinidad and Tobago on a cruise. For beaches, we recommend Pigeon Point on the southern coast of Tobago. This stunning stretch of white sand is located a bus-ride away from the capital of Scarborough is a popular choice for both locals and tourists.
Those interested in delving into the islands’ history will find plenty to absorb at the Arnos Vale sugar plantation in Tobago. Now a hotel, the plantation was one of the main producers of sugar in the early 1850s and its huge sugar-crushing wheels are still visible today. There’s also a museum situated on the plantation’s 450-acre grounds which is packed full of artefacts, crafts, and documentation lovingly preserved from the island’s past.
Elsewhere, nature lovers are encouraged to take a trip to the Asa Wright Nature Centre or enjoy a hike through the beautiful Tobago Forest Reserve.
