Together, the islands of Trinidad and Tobago make up a state and as such are an independent member of the British Commonwealth. Located just off the coast of Venezuela, both islands are excellent getaways offering different attractions. While Trinidad pulses with life, the smaller and unspoiled island of Tobago is the place for a restful and relaxing holiday. Most of its appeal lies in the beautiful scenery and the availability of outdoor activities. View more

Tobago Plantations Golf & Country Club, to give it its full title, is an exciting golf course, located on the 750-acre Lowlands Estate. Previously a sugar cane plantation, this estate is being developed into a major tourist resort, incorporating the Magdalena Grand Beach Resort (formerly the Hilton Tobago), luxury villas and condominiums, bungalows and water sports facilities.
The flat terrain of the old plantation has been sensitively planned around the mature trees and landscape features. Designed by a British golf course designer, the trade winds from the adjacent Atlantic Ocean help to give this 7,000 yard course a distinct links feel. Some holes follow the coastline. Others, in stark contrast, weave their way through mature palm trees and mangroves. The artificial lakes and wetlands are rapidly becoming an important and significant habitat and breeding ground for migratory ducks and birds.
Course Statistics: Par 72 course of 7,005 yards. Four Par 5 holes (535-586 yds), ten Par 4's and four Par 3's.
Please note: The cost of this programme includes green fees for 18 holes, Callaway club rentals and a shared cart. Upon completion of your round of play, a taxi will be called by the pro shop for your return to the pier. Roundtrip taxi transfers are included. Proper golf attire is required for this course. For Gentlemen: polo shirts with collars, trousers or tailored shorts (shirts must be tucked in), soft spikes are compulsory, football shirts with collars are not considered appropriate attire. For Ladies: dresses, skirts, slacks, golf shorts and blouses.

Begin your tour with the scenic ride in a coach along the island's dramatic windward road to Roxborough, where a guided tour takes you on a walk through the Roxborough Rain Forest, the oldest protected Rain Forest in the Western Hemisphere.
After a forest walk of approximately 20 minutes, arrive at the Argyle waterfalls- a series of three tiered cascades reaching up to 175 feet (53 metres) high and crashing into crystal clear pools. Some free time here will allow you to take a swim or just take in nature at its best. After about an hour return to your awaiting transport for the return to the ship.

There are no lifeguards on duty and swimming will be at guest's own risk. Binoculars are also recommended for bird-watching. The flow of water at the falls is directly impacted by the seasonal rain received.

Begin the tour with a scenic drive to Pigeon Point Heritage Park. Upon arrival, take off your shoes and wade in approximately 2 feet of water to, board a glass-bottom boat and cruise out to Buccoo Reef, one of the most accessible coral reefs in the Caribbean, just a short distance off Pigeon Point and Store Bay beaches.

Upon arrival, guests wishing to snorkel or swim will have approximately one hour to enjoy the water before cruising to Nylon Pool, a shallow white-sand area within Buccoo Reef with waters said to rejuvenate anyone lucky enough to swim in it. Dubbed by Princess Margaret as 'Nylon Reef' during her honeymoon in 1962, she commented, "It's so crazy-blue, it looks like nylon."
This entire area, a Tobago national treasure, is designated as the country's only marine protected area under the Marine Areas Preservation and Enhancement Act of 1970 once explored by Jacques Cousteau himself.

Caribbean Sea, Buccoo Reef and Nylon Pool

Upon arrival, embark your catamaran by dinghy boat and set sail along the crystal-clear waters of the southern Caribbean Sea en route to the Buccoo Reef, a protected area full of coral reefs, and Nylon Pool, one of Trinidad and Tobago's most visited attractions. The Nylon Pool is a natural, approximately 3.3-foot-deep (about one-metre-deep) crystal-clear swimming pool with a sandy bottom in the middle of the sea, and was created by an offshore sandbar and a still lagoon. This shallow, white-ground coral pool is located off Pigeon Point, Tobago, and near the Buccoo Reef.
