Laidback, lush and unspoilt, the small island of Tobago is the most southerly of the Caribbean islands – just 7 miles from Venezuela. A nature lover’s paradise, Tobago is ranked the happiest nation in the Caribbean, boasting a lush rainforest backdrop and a beautiful coastline peppered with secluded beaches. Perched on the edge of a friendly fishing village, Castara Retreats is a rare find. A cluster of 15 luxurious self-catering wooden treehouse built harmoniously within the natural landscape each angled to absorb the sweeping views over the Bay, an excellent, buzzing restaurant and bar serving fresh Caribbean food, run by a warm and friendly team led by the charismatic Porridge and Jeanelle. An idyllic setting to escape the demands and hectic pace of everyday life, reconnect with nature and enjoy a restorative and rejuvenating holiday.
