Well worth the lengthy flight (and a very short transfer from the airport), this slice of paradise in the West Indies is perfect for that family holiday of a lifetime – one where both kids and adults can relax, have fun and enjoy new experiences.
The free kids' club for ages 4-12 years is a stand-out, featuring crafts and games but also fun educational sessions about the wildlife and nature around the island, including turtles and birds. Cricket games are also organised for guests on the white sandy beach, and there are three pools, a golf course and tennis.
Most families stay on an all-inclusive basis, although half board and B&B are also available. The à la carte and less formal restaurants give you the opportunity to sample local cuisines as well enjoy international fare, and there is even a pirate-themed pub.
Rooms and suites are decorated in a simple, fresh style; all have ocean views plus a private terrace or balcony. Suites sleeping up to six people make this a great option for larger families.
Not the best-known Caribbean island amongst Brits, Tobago sits south of Grenada and can experience rough seas at times.
