The Regions of Tobago

A detailed guide to the geographical regions used in myTobago listings

To help readers identify establishments and resources within specific areas, we have split Tobago into six distinct regions, as shown on the following map. Neither the region nor the name are taken from any official source; we have simply defined them for the convenience of readers. These regions are used throughout the listings and articles.

Regions of Tobago

Region 1 - Crown Point

Although not technically correct, we are going to refer to the entire section of land from the western tip of Tobago to Canaan as Crown Point. The region includes the following locations and villages:

Bon Accord ~ Canaan ~ Crown Point ~ Golden Grove ~ Kilgwyn ~ La Guira ~ Milford Bay
No Mans Land ~ Pigeon Point ~ Rocky Vale ~ Sandy Point ~ Store Bay ~ Tyson Hall

Crown Point is an area of coral scrubland, seldom rising above sea level. It is the most built-up and commercialised area of the island and characterised by the island's highest density of boarding houses and self-catering hotels primarily servicing the Trinidadian summer holiday market.

Region 2 - Lower Caribbean

Extending from the Claude Noel Highway to Arnos Vale in the north, this is where Tobago's lush hills start to rise in total contrast to the flatlands of Crown Point and, to a lesser degree, the Lower Atlantic regions. The Lower Caribbean region is home to most of Tobago's rental villas:

Adventure ~ Arnos Vale ~ Bethel ~ Black Rock ~ Buccoo ~ Carnbee ~ Courland ~ Grafton
Great Courland Bay ~ Grange ~ Lower Quarter ~ Mary's Hill ~ Montgomery ~ Mt.Irvine
Mount Pleasant ~ Plymouth ~ Roselle ~ Shirvan ~ Shore Park ~ Stonehaven Bay
