Everybody loves Pigeon Point

Rio has Copacabana, Cannes has the Croisette, Tobago has Pigeon Point. It is often considered as the most beautiful beach of the island and the thatch-roofed jetty has become the official signature of Tobago. You pay a small entry fee, but the  beach facilities are excellent. They´ve got  showers, beach-chair rentals, restaurants and some water-sports shops with good looking teachers.

P1750775P1750850P1750803P1750855P1750956One of the most exciting spots during our tour was probably the Nylon Pool, an in-sea shallow white ground coral pool. What´s so exciting about it (except the color)? They say swimming in it makes you look 10 years younger.  Wearing a swimsuit which doesn´t let you breathe (like mine) probably does the same…P1750948P1760007Look at this guy, he is already over 60!P1760030P1760077P1760057P1760088No Man´s Land is really tiny, I can walk around it. But we had some work to do.P1760094P1760135P1760147P1760156P1760165P1760189On the way back practicing some Soca moves for the evening party at Pigeon Point (every weekend, even on sundays!). I was wondering if the Nylon Pool spell worked and I was too young to stay till midnight though…P1760188P1760168P1770323P1770320P1770382P1770347
