Did you know that Tobago is thought to be the inspiration behind the Robinson Crusoe story? This fabulous island has pristine, deserted beaches, crystal clear waters and even a forest similar to Crusoe's desert island. It is without doubt the perfect holiday destination!
Families can explore an old, protected rainforest on a fantastic guided hiking tour. Get ready to discover the flora and fauna of the island and beautiful cascading waterfalls. Children can spot the vibrant coloured tropical birds that live on the island.
Of course, the seas are waiting to be explored with stunning coloured fish and awesome reefs.Turtles use the beaches as nesting sites and between March and September a local charity offers guided visits to these areas. Guests can watch turtles coming ashore to lay their eggs, or see the hatchlings heading to the sea. Interestingly, children can adopt a turtle and are kept up to date on a regular basis on their adopted charge’s progress.
For chocolate lovers there is a cocoa plantation on the island that also makes delicious chocolate, or taste testing locally made ice cream and sweets. A great base for families is the friendly Grafton Beach Resort in Stonehaven which is perfect for families. Children can chill out in their own freshwater Kidz Pool with its non-alcoholic bar and snorkelling available off the beach.
Located in 5 acres the hotel overlooks Stonehaven Beach and has 106 rooms. The resort features two swimming pools, restaurants and bars. Guests also have use of the tennis courts, fitness centre and spa at Le Grand Courlan Spa Resort, which is just next door.
