Charlotteville, Trinidad & Tobago
Charlotteville is an unspoiled and secluded fishing village, located on the northeastern tip of Tobago with a wide bay facing the Caribbean Sea. As you approach over the hills and through the rain forest, your first glimpse is a spectacular view of the village and bay. Out to sea are the “Sisters”, 3 large rock formations jutting out of the sea, one of many excellent dive sites in the area.
Village life centres on the pier and “playing field” and there are a handful of restaurants and bars to visit.
