What is worth seeing in Crown Point? What are the best beaches in this place? How to spend time in Crown Point?


A trip to Tobago started with getting to the desired place during late evening hours, which is why the sightseeing of a new place had to wait until the next day. On the first day I wanted to check out the nearest surroundings, meaning Crown Point, which lies about a 20 minutes car ride from Scarborough.

Crown Point is quite crowded with tourists in the season due to the fact that this is where the main airport of Tobago is located.

If you feel like it, you can see all the places below in one day. However, if you prefer chilling out on the beach, I promise you will not get disappointed. Tobago is the jewel in the crown for the fans of beautiful sandy beaches.

Sandy Point Beach

The first beach that was located nearest my apartment was Sandy Point Beach. The beach itself is right next to the airport, which makes it possible to see the planes landing. What a view!

The beach is beautiful – the sand is white and the water turquoise, and also there are more birds than people there.

Early mornings and afternoons make a perfect time for anglers. A fact confirming that there is plenty of fish, there are many pelicans and seagulls constantly diving in the water to catch their prey.

The beach is big enough to not make anglers, and a small amount of beachgoers bumps into each other.

The Fort Milford

The Milford stronghold lies around 5 minutes away from Sandy Beach and Crow Point center. This place is what is left of defensive walls, which were built by Brits in 1777. What is even more curious is that these walls were mostly built using coral.

The park is rather pocket sized, but there are a few benches, which makes it a perfect place from which you can admire the bay.

There is no fee for entering the park, and you can leave your car on the side of the road, as there is no separate parking space there.

Swallow’s Beach

Swallow’s Beach is quite long as it stretches along the main road – the Pigeon Point.

This beach attracts mostly locals, which makes it available (mainly) for your disposition in all its grandeur outside the tourist season. The water on the Swallow’s beach is clear and see-through. In some of the places you can see a coral reef, which is why you can take a mask and a diving tube for snorkeling activities.

There is no separate parking space near the beach, but have no worries, you can leave your car on the road alongside the beach.

Pigeon Point Beach

The most popular place in Crown Point is, without a doubt, Pigeon Point Beach, which is located on the headland of this village.

To get to this place, you need to buy a ticket when entering it – a 20 TT$ (2 USD) band for a person. The price also includes a whole day entry and a parking slot (the parking space itself is enormous).

There are many bars, restaurants and bowers, which will keep you shaded from the sun.

On the beach itself, you can buy a trip in the local travel agencies – for a natural pool (located in a small distance from Pigeon beach) or for diving.

Even though this is a quite tourist oriented place and I expected a brazen commercial approach towards tourists. The tour sellers were not very insolent.

 If you look for a whole day chillout on a beach with a beautiful view and additionally some restaurants, I can strongly recommend visiting Pigeon Point. It is a place that will guarantee you a charming day at a beach.
