PIGEON POINT BEACH
The thatch-roof hut at Pigeon Point must be the most photographed spot on the island. Lauded as the Tobago's best beach, Pigeon Point is located where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea. The powdery sand and calm turquoise sea at this beach are different from most beaches of the island.
Pigeon Point has shady picnic gazebos, shower blocks, bars and restaurants for all visitors to the island to use. It is a great space to have a bath, relax, lime and even watch the sunset.

Dasheen and other root crops take centre stage in October, as the villages of Bloody Bay, L’Anse Fourmi, and Parlatuvier on the northeast coast pay homage to the versatility and utility of “blue food”.
What is blue food?
Some varieties of dasheen can turn blue or indigo when cooked, hence the term which now is used to describe all root crops, including sweet potato, cassava, and yam.
During the festival, all of the dasheen plant is used to prepare a range of items such as bread, cookies and sweets, ice-cream, etc. A culinary competition and cultural shows are also highlights of the festival.
Tobago Carnival is a liberating festival of cultural expressions…our Rituals. Tobago Carnival is a festival expressing freedom from creative constraints…our Revelry.

Our peculiar biography predetermines our disposition, rendering us as forward-thinking cultural activists so that it is our mandate to birth a distinctive celebration steeped in our folk tradition, paying homage to our heritage and given modern significance sustainable, relevant festival.
Blessed by its historical, cultural, and above all, geographic characteristics. The Carnival compass, so to speak, is set with its hypnotic allure, comprising grounded folk traditions, infused with contemporary concoctions.
We are perfectly poised to set in motion a historic variation of the Carnival ethos. The Carnival is situated just one month after the fall equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the beginning of spring in the Southern Hemisphere, a period which is conducive to fostering an international travel influx from those desirous of newfangled travel experience. It is our duty to align with the signals, identify with the indicators, follow the socio-cultural lead and acknowledge the ordained markings on the wall. We aim to etch an ineffaceable notch on the totem pole of Carnival declarations.
