Do you know that Buccoo Reef is one of the most beautiful in the Caribbean and is home to many species of colourful fish and over 20 varieties of coral? Many seabirds inhabit this area as do Hawksbill Turtles. The lagoons inside the reef provide a rich breading ground for fish and crustaceans.

... here you can find some additional and needful information about Buccoo, the country, culture and people of Tobago as well as picture and maps ...

For the Surfer: Just 2 km away is the popular Mt. Irvine Bay with its coral surfing reef visited by surfers from all over the world. The best surfing conditions usually occure in the months of January to April.

For the Swimmer and Snorkeler: Just 500 metres along the beautiful sandy beach opposite the house there is excellent, safe swimming available that is suitable for young and old alike. However, since this beach and sea water is within a coral lagoon with a fine, sandy beach slepp inside the reef, the water is a little cloudy or "milky" for snorkelling. Great snorkelling can be enjoyed at many locations along the Caribbean coast, but locally, again at Mt. Irvine, excellent snorkelling is available around the two reefs surrounding this bay. Glas-bottomed boat trip may be booked right outside our house and these depart from the jetty just 200 metres away. These trips provide a snorkelling session over the Buccoo reef itself. For great accompanied, personal snorkelling trips for 2-4 persons around the best areas of the reef and coral gardens at an amazingly low cost, a local boat owner, who is both a fisherman and a diver, may be contacted.

For the Fisherman: Very good fishing for Ladyfish, Kavali, Snook, Snapper and Tarpon is just 200 metres away on either of the village jetties or from the beach all around Buccoo Bay ... it is free!!! Exciting inshore fishing around the local area for primarily barracuda, kingfish and bonito can be arranged at every reasonable cost right opposite our house with one of the local fishermen, well known to us. Deep sea game fishing may be booked with one of the larger professional boats located within 8 km.

For the Birdwatcher and Naturalist: The trees in our garden have regular colourful birds visiting for fruits and titbits!! However, just 300 metres away from our house is the start of the well known Buccoo marsh with its many varieties of insects and birds. A little further away but still within walking distance, a trail leads to Buccoo pond, a wonderful freshwater habitat of scrub, secondary growth, forest, marsh, mangroves and the pools themselves. This mixed habitat is home to lizards, iguanas, crabs, snakes (harmless!) and many species of breeding and migratory birds, making it the primary lowland bird watching area of Tobago. A frequent visitor to our house has recorded 114 species of birds from the Buccoo area.Only some 3 km away is the Grafton Sanctuary (free admission, just leave a small donation in the box) where large numbers of wild birds (including up to 200 Cocricos) are fed at 8 am and 4 pm daily. Here there are also several trails in this beautiful place. Most of the upland and woodland species of birds can be seen here. Sampson, the curator here at Grafton, will take you for a guided tour on request for only a very small fee.
