WHAT TO DO

From The Nest, a  fifteen-minute walk will take you to Grange Bay and its limpid waters; just relax there.

After a few hours you may feel like trying something different; well, behind the beach, just across the road, you can join the golfers at the Mt Irvine Golf Club.

Don’t like golf? No problem! In five minutes you can walk from Grange Bay towards Mt Irvine beach: here you can find a nice restaurant on the beach offering local spicy food.

Just outside the restaurant, you can buy some real fresh fish for your BBQ at home. The fishermen bring their catch ashore twice a day and it will cost you just a few pence. For a small extra you can have it cleaned and cut as you like.

Your day out is nearly over and you can’t wait to cook your tasty fish and washed down with a chilled Carib. However before you leave the beach, don’t forget to apply a suitable mosquito repellent to your skin.

Sunset is early, at about 6,30 pm and it gets dark quickly; better to go home, but if you don’t feel like walking, then stand by the side of the road, wave at the passing cars and stop a taxi (look for the H on the number plate); it will take you to the nearest point home for a few TT dollars.

It’s as easy as that.

 

ENVIROMENT PROTECTION

On land:

  • Don’t leave rubbish in the forest or on the beaches
  • Don’t throw stubs, they are a fire hazard
  • Don’t damage nature in the forest or at the water falls
  • Don’t disturb wild life and keep the right distance away.

In the sea:

  • Don’t touch or damage corals on the reef
  • Don’t kill turtles, disturb their nests or damage their eggs
  • Don’t touch mantas
  • If you see any environment or wildlife abuse, please inform the police or relevant authorities.

In restaurants and shops:

  • Don’t eat wild meat or turtle meat (even if they tell you there is plenty of it)
  • Don’t buy black coral or turtle objects

 

PROTECT YOURSELF FROM

  • Sunshine: It is very strong even if the sky is cloudy; protect yourself with a HPF sun care lotions;
  • Hiv/AIDS:  Be responsible and take precautions. AIDS here is wide spread.
  • Drugs: Any drug (even a minimum amount) is illegal. Any breach of the law is severely punished.
  • Mosquitos and Sand Flies: use a good mosquito repellent and apply it regularly early in the morning and late afternoon, especially during the rainy season (June -December).
  • There are no vaccination requirements for entry to TnT. Tobago Hospital facilities are quite limited; it is advisable for visitors to get an adequate medical insurance.

 

BEHAVE LIKE YOU DO AT HOME

  • Don’t give a lift to strangers
  • Don’t wear valuables or take too much money with you, credit cards are accepted everywhere
  • Don’t forget to shut doors and windows when going out
  • Don’t walk alone along dark lonely roads
  • Don’t give anybody information about your address in Tobago

Tobago people are very helpful and friendly, but traditional; so always wear a T-shirt in public places and never go around in just your swimwear.

Going topless and nudism are not allowed on the beach.

Respect these simple rules to enjoy the local life style.
