Tobago Featured on the cover of the New York Times Style Magazine
The cover of the 2009 Travel Winter edition of The New York Times Style Magazine features an arresting image of Tobago’s alluring Black Bay Beach on its cover. Inside the magazine is a glamorous six page spread featuring the laid back style of the stunning island.
Secret cove beaches, sleepovers on the sand and hotels no taller than a coconut tree – the Caribbean island of Tobago takes it nice and easy, writes Jeffries Blackerby of the Tobago experience.
One of the Caribbean’s pristine gems, Tobago has gained international recognition for its beautiful beaches - free of crowds and massive hotel developments, vibrant culture and authenticity.
“There are plenty of Caribbean islands with secluded beaches, but none quite like Tobago...It’s as close to an idealized scenario of the Blue Lagoon meets The Beach as there is within five hours of New York,” Blackerby wrote.
Included in the article is an essential guide to Tobago with tips on how to get around, hotels, restaurants, activities and beaches.
Both islands are featured in the Magazine’s Life Needs the Caribbean supplement for the destination’s incredible eco-adventures, from kayaking along the islands coasts and wetlands, to bird watching at the world famous Asa Wright Nature Centre - a 270-acre conservatory, and the Point-a-Pierre Wildfowl Trust, a nature preserve dedicated to the breeding and reintroduction of various birds and waterfowl species to the wild.
For persons seeking to purchase property on the islands, an article published on December 1, in the International Real Estate section of the New York Times, features a luxury three-storey waterfront home on Monos Island, twenty minutes from Trinidad’s Western peninsula. The article includes a market overview, buyers profile and tips on purchasing property in the twin-island state.
