If there’s one iconic landmark that immediately says you’re in Tobago, it’s the Pigeon Point jetty with its thatch-roofed hut, extending from a long curve of gently golden sand into water of an almost unbelievable turquoise hue. It’s the subject of a thousand postcards and ten thousand holiday snapshots, and the icon of the most famous beach in Trinidad’s sister isle, renowned for its warm, shallow, sheltered sea. Part of a 125-acre nature reserve near Tobago’s southwestern tip, Pigeon Point — with its endless groves of coconut trees and peerless sunset views — is also the gateway to the only slightly less famous Buccoo Reef and Nylon Pool.
