This peaceful boutique property sits on the Caribbean side of Tobago, where the water is a beautiful blue and is generally calmer than the Atlantic side. The resort largely attracts couples looking for a romantic stay: All rooms feature ocean views, the spa has numerous treatments available, and the adults-only policy keeps the pool from being overrun by loud children. Though rooms aren't particularly upscale (they have tube TVs and the Wi-Fi signal is weak), they are spacious and feature balconies overlooking the sea.
Le Grand Courlan sits on the Caribbean side of the island, overlooking Stonehaven Bay.
Just off the coast of Venezuela, Trinidad and Tobago is a small Caribbean country at the end of the chain of islands. While Trinidad is the larger, more industrialized island (and also home to a significant amount of crime), Tobago is the smaller "resort" island. Though tourism isn't a major industry for the country, plenty of visitors head to Tobago for its bird-watching, diving, and relatively unspoiled nature.
About once a week, flights go directly from major airports such as JFK in New York City and Miami International to Tobago. Generally, however, visitors must fly into Trinidad and then take either a 20-minute plane ride, or a 2-hour ferry, to Tobago.
