Bago’s Beach Bar
Sunset on the sand
Set right on the shore of Crown Point, Bago’s is the best place to come for afternoon beers or to sample local rum after a lazy day on the beach. With its Caribbean charm, chilled-out tunes and cooling shade, it also has great sunset views and a daily happy hour (7-8pm). Belt out your best karaoke voice on Saturdays, or simply come here to snap up succulent snacks or just stop off on your way to or from Pigeon Point.

Glasgow’s Beach Bar
Linger with the locals
For cheap, cold beers, a couple of cuba libres and to catch up with the locals, there’s nowhere better than Glasgow’s. Drop in and get the lowdown on everything to do with Tobago from the friendly owners and regulars, and take in the panoramic views of Parlatuvier Bay. With its breezy top deck and lower level, it is set on the roadside on the crest of a hill and has a rustic, authentic feel that you won’t forget.
Northside Road, Parlatuvier
Surfers Beach Bar
A little-known, hidden gem of a bar set on the stunning Mount Irvine Beach, Surfer’s is a wonderful place to while away a day in the sun. Beautiful views, plenty of comfy cabanas and a range of soft and alcoholic drinks make it the perfect hangout. Local rums are ready to go, available by the half-flask or full bottle, and can be teamed with a bucket of ice – should be enough to keep you going until sundown!
Shirvan Road, Mount Irvine Beach

The best blend
Artwork, cocktails and music – the main draws to Café Iguana, an exotic, eclectic venue in Crown Point. From live jazz and drum bands to the 100-strong cocktail menu and on-sale local artwork adorning the walls, this is one of Tobago’s most unique bars, which also serves a whole host of Caribbean cuisine. The open-air setting gives a relaxed vibe and makes for a fantastic venue to spend an evening that won’t break the bank.
