Why go?With tropical climes, sun-drenched beaches and frolic-inducing azure surf, Tobago is a soca-pulsing Caribbean hideaway that’s lost none of its signature laid-back charm. Perfect for nature-lovers (think green turtles, rainbow-coloured hummingbirds and vividly block-hued parrot fish), this lush, leafy island may be small, but it sure packs a (rum) punch for heat-seekers with a sense of adventure.

When?The average year-round temperature is 29°C with rain – usually just tropical showers – most likely from June to December. If you want to see sea turtles, go in June to August when three different species visit the island to lay their eggs in the sand.

The island is big on events, so consider booking early for next year. The partying starts with what the locals call ‘the greatest show on earth’, the Trinidad and Tobago Carnival (16-17 February 2015), which is a riot of colour, calypso and costumes. It’s time to shake your best tail feather, ladies… If you arrive over the Easter holidays, you can catch the annual goat and crab-racing festival, next year is its 90th anniversary ( Music-lovers flock to Tobago in the last week of April for its largest annual music event – the Tobago Jazz Experience ( This offers up an eclectic mix of soul, soca, pan, contemporary jazz and reggae against the lush, sugar cane-swathed landscape. Past headliners include Tarrus Riley, Sting, Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Diana Ross. And dancing the night away to the likes of Earth Wind & Fire’s infectious Boogie Wonderland with white-sand wedged between your toes sure does it for us…

You really must…Meet Jennifer. And Shawari. And Princess Julie. No, they’re not Tobago’s reality stars – just a few of the rescue horses at the Healing with Horses Foundation (from around £50,, a gorgeously bohemian equine team offering a unique horse riding experience. We’re not just talking a sunset ride on the beach, here. We’re talking a full-on gallop through the rolling turquoise waves. So expect to get wet. Very wet.
