Store Bay in Tobago is a very busy and popular beach. It’s not far from the airport and many hotels, just a short walk away. There are two hotels on the cliffs nearby.
The beach is 210 meters long and gently slopes into the sea. The sand is light-colored, and the water is blue-green and inviting. Waves come in from the northwest, and they’re not too big. The water currents flow to the southwest.
One special thing about this beach is that the sea floor suddenly drops down about 65 cm in one spot. You can park your car for free near the beach, and there are places to change and rest for a small fee. You can also buy local crafts, souvenirs, and food, like the famous Tobago crab and dumplings. There are lifeguards, and you can rent things like lounge chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling gear, and kayaks.
On the cliffs, there aren’t many plants, but you can find shade from sea grapes and big trees.
Store Bay is a popular starting point for boat tours to Buccoo Reef and for deep-sea fishing.
Every year in August, there’s a big power boat race from Trinidad to Tobago, and it ends at Store Bay.
