Trindad and Tobago Overview

The island of the Arawaks and Caribs was colonised by Spain.

The indigenous population soon disappeared, and slaves from Africa were captured to replace them on the plantations.

After successive raids by the Dutch and French, during the 17th century, the island fell to the British in 1797, and was finally ceded to them following the Treaty of Amiens, in 1802.

Tobago was also ceded to Britain at the end of the Napoleonic Wars.

After slavery was abolished in 1833, the British imported more than 150,000 Muslim and Hindu Indian guest-workers, between 1845 and 1917.

Trinidad and Tobago became an independent state in the Commonwealth of Nations on August 31, 1962.

In April 1970 Trinidad suffered serious rioting and a mutiny by part of the army. The state of emergency was finally ended in June 1972.

Tobago Beaches

Tobago is just 20 miles from Trinidad.

Pigeon Point

Pigeon Point has one and a half kilometres of tourist brochure white sand, but you might prefer one of the smaller bays on Tobago.

Turtle Beach

The mile-long sandy beach at Great Courland Bay, on the north-west coast of Tobago, is regularly visited by nesting Leatherback turtles; usually between March and July.

Port of Spain

The capital is situated on the island of Trinidad.>

When the Spanish settled in the area in 1595, they renamed the Native American village of Conquerabia to Puerto de Espana.

Then the British Anglicised it to Port of Spain when they took control of the island in 1797.

Carnival in Trinidad is always a special time, although rooms fill up quickly. Mas and Calypso go together like rum and coconut.

Things to see in Port of Spain

The Royal Botanical Gardens; the National Archives; the National Museum and Art Gallery, an Anglican cathedral (1816-1823); and a Roman Catholic cathedral.

Trinidad Carnival

Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago is not a parade.

You don’t just stand on the side of the road and watch it go by. You see it, hear it, smell it, taste it, breathe it and live it.
