Buccoo Bay

Vast coral reefs protect Tobago’s shoreline from erosion. Jacques Cousteau greatly admired the fragile marine reserve in Buccoo Bay, where visitors on glass-bottomed-boat tours can see colorful parrot fish, butterfly fish and angelfish darting among the staghorn corals, sea fans, sponges and other underwater life. Green loggerhead and hawksbill turtles also glide through these waters, along with 6,000 leatherbacks that nest here each year. Nearby is an attraction called the Nylon Pool, where boat passengers often stop for a dip: An underwater sandbar here forms a pool where the water is so shallow it looks supernaturally blue. (Note that a swim in the Nylon Pool is said to have rejuvenating effects.)
