Over the course of my life, I must have driven down the road to Pigeon Point hundreds of times. You know, the beach facilities are quite a way in, and you have to pass by various little stalls selling sarongs and carved calabashes. Never, at least I don't think so, have I stopped at the beautiful stretch of beach that leads up to Pigeon Point - the part that's free!
Richard and I have been in Tobago for the best part of a week now, and in an attempt to reverse a terrible mistake we made by heading over to Store Bay on Ash Wednesday (all hundreds of people, boom boxes and girls wining on the beach included) I looked across the bay and saw an almost empty stretch of beach. I told Richard that's where we should go. And so we did.
Well, behold a pristine little beach, with a shallow reef so it's relatively calm, lots of trees you can sit under for shade, and almost the best part - it was quiet and near!
Here are some of the pictures I snapped there today.
