A couple of walking trails traverse the island’s hilly terrain, and from the summit there are stunning views across the Atlantic Ocean and lookouts to neighbouring islands.
Little Tobago is an excellent spot for birding. You can watch red-billed tropicbirds and magnificent frigate birds catching the sea breezes, or look down on red-footed and brown boobies that perch precariously on small trees. This island is a crucial breeding site for many of the region’s seabirds. In terms of plant life, the island is covered mostly by dry forest due to its steep slopes, which make it difficult for the soil and vegetation retain rainwater. No visit to Little Tobago is complete without taking an opportunity to snorkel on the coral reef that thrives just offshore. This presents an array of marine life, with cuttlefish, parrotfish and hawksbill turtles all seen in these waters.
