TOP 20 Visitors Pick "Favourite sights and experiences in Trini"
For a single island, Trinidad is incredibly diverse, her human and physical landscapes varying vastly from coast to coast. Starting out early and limiting your stops, you could see the entire island in a day if you really wanted to, either on your own, or with guides like Caribbean Discovery Tours or T&T Sightseeing Tours . Here are our 20 favourite sights (in no particular order, and grouped by region!).
Port of Spain & Northwest
1. Queen’s Park Savannah: Trinidad’s Hyde Park, is the green heart of the city, and supposedly the largest roundabout in the world. Popular with joggers and sports enthusiasts. Coconuts, corn soup, pholourie and sno-cones are sold along its perimeter. Off the northern end are the Emperor Valley Zoo and Botanical Gardens, with an extraordinary collection of flora. Along the southern end, the new National Academy for the Performing Arts (NAPA) looms large. On the western side, see the Magnificent Seven, a series of beautiful colonial-era buildings (from south to north): Queen’s Royal College; Hayes Court; Milles Fleurs; Roomor; Roman Catholic Archbishop’s House; Whitehall; and Killarney or Stollmeyer’s Castle.
2. President’s and Prime Minister’s residences: adjacent to the Gardens is the President’s House (1873). Next door is the new residence of the Prime Minister, which doubles as a diplomatic centre.
3.The Brian Lara Promenade is the heart of Port of Spain and borders the new waterfront, which includes the Hyatt Regency and the International Financial Centre (IFC). Nearby are Nicholas Tower and Twin Towers, which house the Central Bank; and the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception (where T&T’s many ethnicities are depicted in the stained glass). Further north is Woodford Square, often transformed into a platform for political rallies, and bordered by the Red House, Hall of Justice, National Library (NALIS) and the Anglican Cathedral.
4. Fort George: among cannons and a small museum, enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the entire west coast from 335m (1,100ft) above Port of Spain.
5. Chaguaramas National Heritage Park: paradise for all nature-lovers and eco adventurers! Hiking trails, historical exhibits and landmarks, a golf course, marinas, restaurants, beaches, and breathtaking waterfalls. There are great opportunities for land sports (cycling, hashing, mountain biking and more) and watersports (kayaking, sailing, yachting, powerboating, and dragon-boat racing). You can catch boats to the offshore islands to explore natural wonders like the Gasparee Caves and offshore reefs
The north & northeast
6. Maracas Bay: Perhaps Trinidad’s most popular and famous beach, definitely the best place to eat a shark-n-bake! Amenities available, and hiking trails lead into the Northern Range.
7. Mount St Benedict Church & Monastery: perched 240m (800ft) up, the oldest Benedictine monastery (1912) in the Caribbean offers astounding views of the Caroni plains and beyond. Its 600 acres offer nature trails, an art gallery and studio, gift shop, guesthouse and café.
8. Lopinot: nestled in the Northern Range, a small museum has been made of the original estate house, slave quarters and prison on the cocoa estate developed by the Compte de Lopinot, who fled Haiti after the 1791 revolution. Popular for sports, river bathing, cave exploration (make sure to hire a guide), and parang around Christmas time. But beware: the Compte is said to appear at full moon, astride a white horse!
9. Cleaver Woods: west of Arima, home to a small Amerindian museum, with a picnic area and nature trails.
10. Asa Wright Nature Centre: formerly a cocoa and coffee plantation, its 193 acres are now Trinidad’s most renowned bird sanctuary and eco centre. Guided tours, nature trails, restaurant, accommodation, gift shop, and freshwater pool all on site. Reservations recommended.
11. Galera Point: magnificent headland beyond the Toco Lighthouse at the northeastern tip of the island, where the navy blue Atlantic Ocean and electric blue Caribbean Sea meet
12. Caroni Swamp: nesting site of the national bird, the scarlet ibis. Boat trips depart 4pm through mangrove and marshland, where you can see a variety of birds, flora and fauna.
13. Hanuman Temple & Dattatreya Yoga Centre: the distinctive 26m (85ft) statue of the Hindu god Hanuman is the tallest of its kind outside of India, and towers over the Yoga Centre and mandir.
14. Waterloo Temple: its story is as magical as its views across the Gulf of Paria. Indian indentured labourer Siewdass Sadhu toiled for decades to build a temple in the sea, as it was forbidden to build on colonial land. It is now a sacred spot for Hindu worship.
15. Point Lisas: Trinidad’s major industrial complex sprawls along the west coast, and houses plants producing steel and petrochemicals. Guided tours available.
16. La Vega Garden Centre: this estate in Gran Couva is home to a range of plants and trees, and is popular for picnics, kayaking, and other outdoor activities
17. Pointe-à-Pierre Wild Fowl Trust: a magnificent 25-hectare sanctuary and breeding centre for endangered waterfowl, with learning centre and eco lodge. Reservations required. 628-4145, www.triniwetlands.org.
18. San Fernando Hill: the city’s foremost landmark – scarred by quarrying but since declared a national park – offers amazing vistas of the city, Gulf of Paria, Caroni Plains, and Northern Range, with picnic huts and a children’s play area.
19. Devil’s Woodyard Mud Volcano: much less terrifying than its name (given by European settlers trying to explain the bubbling and rumbling), it is one of many mud volcanos in the southland. Though usually harmless, large eruptions can occur. Playground and picnic tables onsite.
20. Pitch Lake: one of the only lakes of its kind in the world, producing natural asphalt that’s been mined since 1859. Guided tours available; museum on site.
TOP 10 PICKS OF WHAT TO DO & SEE IN TOBAGO
1) Argyle Falls
Tobago’s premier waterfall and highlight of the Windward coast drive. A 15-minute forest walk brings you to the stunning three-tiered waterfall. Keep an eye out for wildlife: kingfishers, which nest in the riverbed’s bamboo roots can often be spotted. A guide, available at the visitor centre, is recommended. Entrance fee. www.argylewaterfall.com
2) Fort King George
Regally overlooking Tobago’s capital from 140m (460ft) above the Windward coast, this is the twin islands’ best-preserved historical site. Originally built by the British in 1777, the fort’s perimeter walls were erected by the French in 1781. It changed hands and names several times before the British reclaimed it as Fort King George in 1804. Renowned now for its tranquillity, ocean breeze and panoramic views, the compound includes the Tobago Museum; displays include Amerindian artefacts, colonial relics, military memorabilia and fossils from Tobago’s distant past.
The steep descent into the fishing village of Charlotteville from the Speyside-Charlotteville road is a truly memorable experience. As you snake your way down the hairpin bends, the village’s fragile-looking homes, set in relief against verdant vegetation, tumble down the hillside to the ocean below. In the afternoon, the bay glistens while fishing pirogues bob with waves lapping the shoreline. Don’t miss a trip to spectacular Pirate’s Bay, accessed via a track at the village’s eastern tip. NB If driving down to Pirate’s Bay on your own, a 4WD vehicle is essential; exercise extreme caution on this difficult terrain
4) Main Ridge Forest Reserve
Between Roxborough and Bloody Bay winds the road through the oldest forest reserve in the western hemisphere (14,000 acres were protected in 1776). It’s a beautiful and peaceful drive, but there are also a number of trails (including the popular Gilpin trace, Atlantic, Blue Copper and Nilpin trails) by which to explore the rainforest. Home to abundant flora and fauna, some bird species to look out for include the white-tailed sabre-wing hummingbird, jacamars, and mannequins. A certified guide is strongly recommended.
5) Buccoo Reef and Nylon Pool
The largest and most frequently visited of Tobago’s reefs. An arc of five reef flats separated by channels, it boasts a wonderful array of vibrantly coloured aquatic life, including 40 species of coral. French explorer Jacques Cousteau labelled it the third most spectacular reef in the world, and it was declared a marine protected area in 1973. Between the shore and the reef is the Nylon Pool, an offshore sandbar that has formed a metre-deep pool in the middle of the ocean. The name comes from Princess Margaret, who reportedly said the water was as clear as her nylon stockings. Glass-bottom boat tours (TT$60-150) depart Pigeon Point and Store Bay twice daily.
6) Little Tobago
Just 2km2 (1.2 sq miles), a trekkers’ and birdwatcher’s idyll. In 1909, island owner Sir William Ingram introduced 24 flamboyantly plumed Birds of Paradise from New Guinea. Ravaged by hurricanes and hunters, the colony died out in the 1960s. Upon Ingram’s 1924 death, Little Tobago was transferred to the government on condition it remained a bird sanctuary. Today, colonies of red-billed tropicbirds, boobies, terns and magnificent frigate birds enjoy this protection. Glass-bottom boat tours (TT$150) depart Blue Waters Inn twice daily.
7) Pigeon Point Beach
It has graced hundreds of postcards and brochures with its jetty’s carat-thatched cabana set against turquoise waters, soft white sand and swaying palms, and remains one of Tobago’s most popular beaches. The approach road, fringed with bougainvillea and towering coconut trees, is an experience in itself.
8) Speyside diving
Diving draws many visitors to Tobago and Speyside is the island’s diving mecca. Premier sites like Angel Reef, Black Jack Hole, Kelleston Drain, Coral Gardens and Japanese Gardens lie just offshore. It hosts a wonderful variety of coral (including the world’s largest brain coral), moray eels, sea turtles, and sharks. The biggest attraction is the magnificent manta ray, with an average 2-4m (8-12ft) wingspan.
9) Arnos Vale Estate and Waterwheel
Beautiful and rustic, featuring one of the best-preserved colonial-era waterwheels in Tobago or Trinidad. The estate, with buildings constructed of natural materials, has been developed to include a restaurant, museum and park with several nature trails offering great bird watching opportunities.
10) Kimme Museum: “The Castle”
German-born sculptor Luise Kimme has lived and worked in Tobago since 1979 and produces arresting larger-than-life sculptures hewn from solid tree trunks and inspired by local culture, folklore and the beauty of Tobagonian people. As well as working in oak, cedar, lime and cypress she produces bronze casts from the wooden originals. Kimme’s mystical temple of a museum/atelier, known locally as The Castle, features dancing calypsonians, towering religious sculptures, Nijinsky ballet dancers and mythological figures. Open Sundays 10am-2pm or by appointment: 639-0257, www.luisekimme.com.

HOW TO REDUCE YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT
Take nothing but photos, leave nothing but footprints….. Both climate change and globalisation can hit developing island nations particularly hard. Here’s what you can do to safeguard the islands’ natural and cultural treasures, and promote sustainable development:
Buy Local: Purchase local CDs, books and DVDs from authorised retailers (not pirated copies); as well as locally produced food and souvenirs (not any made from endangered species)
Fly carbon neutral: most airlines (including Caribbean Airlines) allow you to offset carbon dioxide emissions from your flight
Mind your petrol: choose the smallest vehicle to suit your needs when renting (or buying) a car; drive within the speed limit; don’t let your car idle; keep your tires inflated; carpool when possible; and when you can, walk or cycle
Recycle: Ace, Carib Glass, Piranha, and SWMCOL process plastic, glass, aluminium, paper, cardboard and electronics (e-waste); some sponsor receptacles.
Reduce: Turn off electrical when not in use; avoid plastic bags and styrofoam; buy and consume only what you need; reuse when you can
WHERE TO STAY:
There are a number of hotels, guesthouses, self-catering and bed & breakfast establishments in T&T.
Accommodation ranges from major international hotel chains like the Hilton, Hyatt and Marriott, to cozy family-owned B&Bs.
The average price for a room is about US$125 for hotels and US$65 for guesthouses. The most difficult time to find accommodation in Trinidad is over Carnival, and around the Jazz Festival in Tobago.
Tobago may be small, but it finds room for every sort of hospitality. Luxury or budget? Ocean or forest? Beach or infinity pool? Villa or host home? Room service or self-catering? Ah, decisions, decisions.
Its wide and ever-increasing array of accommodation can meet any holiday plans or budget, particularly in the tourist centre of Crown Point and along the island’s Leeward Coast. From the busy southwest corner of the island to the rainforests of the interior and northeast, you can find comfortable, quality lodging. You can choose a luxury or budget hotel, a beach resort, an elegant villa, a self-catering apartment, a homely guesthouse, or a simple cottage in a quiet fishing village. Most choices offer airport transfers and visitor activities including tours led by experienced nature guides.
The Crown Point area, next to the airport, pulls more visitors than anywhere else, and if you want social life, nightlife, and plenty of entertainment options, this is the place to go for. There are both luxury and budget hotels within easy walking distance of the airport, close to Store Bay and Pigeon Point beaches, and an array of restaurants and bars. Hotels and resorts are thick on the ground here in the southwest, including Blue Haven, Crown Point Hotel and Tropikist. There are self-catering apartments at Belleviste and Store Bay Holiday Resort, and stunning villas like those at Stonehaven, Seahorse Inn and Plantation Beach Villas a little way up the coast.

A weekend conference, a Carnival adventure, a search for the blue-crowned motmot ... Trinidad’s visitors have their needs and budgets, and the island’s accommodation stock has developed accordingly. Accommodation in Trinidad is centered in and around Port of Spain: major hotel chains, business hotels and guesthouses, some with conference centres. There are also hotels in San Fernando and a few properties in rural areas, especially on the north and northeast coasts. But attractive guesthouses, villas and apartments have emerged wherever they are needed.
"The Business Traveller"
Business hotels in Trinidad can be grand or simply practical, but they provide what the businessman needs and expects. Several of the major brands have properties in and around Port of Spain (Crowne Plaza, Hilton, Holiday Inn, Hyatt, Marriott), and there are some popular independent properties like the Kapok. There is plenty of flexible conference and meeting space in the city, and a recently established conference bureau. Excellent hotels and facilities are part of the reason why Trinidad continues to be the business centre of the region.
Popular among business travellers are the new Hyatt on the Port of Spain waterfront and the Marriott on the outskirts of the city. In San Fernando, two leading establishments are the Royal and Tradewinds hotels, while the new Holiday Inn Select is located close to Piarco Airport. In the Port of Spain suburbs, Cascadia and Chancellor (St. Ann’s); the new Carlton Savannah, and the Coblentz Inn (both in Cascade) are popular choices. In scenic Chaguaramas, enjoy seaside sunsets and a range of on-site amenities at CrewsInn (which also processes marine and yacht arrivals) and the Coral Cove Marina.
City, coast or mountain? Port of Spain is not the best base for a sun-and-sand holiday (the famous Maracas Bay is more than half an hour’s drive); its visitors are after the excitement of its music, partying, bars and nightspots, its flamboyance and its general “buzz”. Luxury seekers gravitate to the large hotels with their world-class spas and entertainment, and virtually all of the business hotels mentioned above will cater to all your vacation needs.
"Adventurers and budget travellers" stay at the smaller hotels, guesthouses, and bread-and-breakfast properties. Guesthouses near the capital include the Allamanda (Woodbrook), Par-May-La’s (Newtown), Monique’s (Maraval), and Alicia’s House (St. Ann’s). Beyond the city, the north, northeast and southeast coasts supply most of the beach properties, smart or rustic.
The eco visitors and nature enthusiasts, both scientific and amateur, on the other hand, get out of town quickly and head for the hills and the forests. A few properties cater especially for those interested in the island’s flora and fauna, its wetlands, its nesting turtles, and above all its magnificent variety of birds. Accommodation is usually close by, but is in limited supply: it includes the world-famous Asa Wright Nature Centre in the hills above Arima, and Hacienda Jacana near Talparo. Turtle watching? Mt. Plaisir in Grande Rivière lets guests get close to the magnificent and endangered leatherback turtle, which nests on the beaches of the northeast coast each March through August. Indeed, the northeast of Trinidad is the second largest leatherback nesting ground in the world.
Availability & prices
Hotel rooms average US$125 a night, guesthouses $65; but discounted rates and packages are often available – particularly in the current global economic climate. Island-wide, last-minute rooms are usually available, but be sure to book well in advance if you need a place to stay during Carnival season or major conferences and international events. Peak season is December–April, and rates increase dramatically around Carnival time when droves of expatriates and tourists flock to Trinidad. Book as far in advance as you can.
