If I was going to be a pirate, this bay would surely be on my places to visit. Castara Bay has quaint local flavor that will make you wish you had grown up here. It is small enough to meet everyone in a weekend visit to the market. The beaches? They are just as beautiful as the rest of Tobago.... More

The village and the people are some of the most welcoming people in the world. The weather is perfect and your away from the hustle of the city. Nice choices of restaurants but Tobago style.

A beautifull little bay with a massive personality. A traditional fishing village. The people are warm and friendly and know how to party. Have fallen in love with Castara and Tobago.

Castara has amazing reef life. The variety of corals and fishes makes this trip truly worthwhile. Definitely one of my favourite snorkeling spots!

This is a lovely place, the people are very friendly and encourage the visitors to get involved. My hubby and our friends helped with the fishing nets and chatted to the locals at every opportunity. The beach is lovely, in some places it could do with a little clean up but mostly it is lovely and not busy with thousands... More

This is a beautiful beach. The water is a lovely color and the sand is very soft. There's no seaweed and hardly any rocks. There are some great restaurants, shops, and bars on the beach, as well as chairs you can rent. But the best part is that it's not a super popular beach so it doesn't get crowded. It's... More

Castara is one of my favourite beaches to visit in Tobago. The quiet fishing village nestled in the countryside is a must visit if ever you're in the North Coast of Tobago. The beach is calm and makes for amazing photos at sunset.

My wife and I visited Castara in Nov/Dec for 2 weeks self catering. Fishermen sell their daily catch at 4pm and the local ladies bake fresh bread on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Excellent snorkelling on the right hand side of the beach. Beautiful sunsets. Great vacation.
