Heaven on Earth AKA Petite Tabac

Petite Tabac is one of five tiny islets that make up the Tobago Cays archipelago in the Grenadines.

Everything you could ever want in a deserted island paradise is here.

You’ll find shallow, crystalline waters teaming with colorful sea life including graceful sea turtles gliding to and fro. The borderline where sea reluctantly gives way to land couldn’t be graced with more picture-perfect white sand. And coconut trees dot the area just beyond—their fronds splashing green brush strokes across the azure sky and blessed patches of shade across the ground.

Further inland on these tiny isles of perfection you’ll find box tortoises lumbering along the ground and long, tan iguanas lounging in the trees. All the while, sea birds call from their nests in the rocks or as they lazily circle high in the sky.

But how to get there?

Well, at this very moment, you can find airfares from Miami International Airport aboard American Airlines to Grenada for just over $600 roundtrip. From Grenada, you could hop a quick flight aboard SVGair to Union Island for just $175 roundtrip. Now, so desperately close to the Tobago Cays you can easily see them on horizon, it’s simply a matter of paying a water taxi less than $10 for a quick ride over to the immaculate waters pictured above.
