  • Address: Tobago, Trinidad and Tobago
Leave the hotel swimming pool behind on a trip to Tobago’s Nylon Pool. This huge offshore sandbar is a picturesque shallow bank about a mile from Pigeon Point, and a hugely popular spot for visitors to swim and snorkel under the Caribbean sun. Supposedly, the name was bestowed Princess Margaret when she visited the pool in 1962 and reportedly said the clear water reminded her of looking through a nylon stocking. The shallow corals of Buccoo Reef surround the sandy bottomed bathing area, making it a perfect spot to swim with local reef fish. Bring a mask and snorkel and keep watch for parrotfish, queen angels and trumpet fish flitting among the reefs. 

Practical Info

A number of tour boats offer day trips to Nylon Pool as part of their coastline or snorkeling tours. Because Nylon Pool is one of Tobago’s most popular attractions, you can expect to find large crowds here and a Caribbean party atmosphere with boats playing music and visitors sipping rum punch as they soak up the sun and sea.
