HISTORY OF TOBAGO
An outline and history of our beautiful island of Tobago.
Tobago was settled over 2,500 years ago, by Amerindians moving north from the South American mainland. Tobago's close
neighbor Trinidad was actually still attached to South America up till 10,000 years ago and consequently the diversity of
wildlife on the mainland is still evident on the two islands - over 260 species of birds breed in Trinidad and Tobago.
Europeans first reached these islands in the form of Columbus on his third transatlantic voyage in 1498. Tobago was "discovered"
by the English in 1508 and, as was the case for most islands in the Caribbean, it was then fought over by the Dutch, Spanish,
English, French and settled by Latvians and Buccaneers (and some others) well into the 18th Century. Bloody Bay, Pirates Bay,
and Man o' War Bay bear testament to this past. The English controlled the island from 1762 with hiccups from 1781-1793 and
from 1802-1803 when the island fell under French occupation. It was officially ceded to the English in 1814.
In 1962 both Trinidad and Tobago gained independence from Britain and finally became a Republic in 1976. Tobago is now
almost wholly dependent on Tourism - quite understandable considering the tropical naivety that pervades the island and the
straightforward, genuine, unaffected friendliness of its people.
Tobago is a stunningly beautiful tropical island just 26 miles long and 8 miles wide (42 by 10 kilometers) and 10 degrees
north of the equator, with a rugged, craggy coastline, deserted palm-fringed beaches, enchanting coral reefs and a wealth
of protected rainforest. With no heavy industry, very light development and only a handful of all-inclusive resorts, Tobago
has remained exceptionally natural and un-spoilt. The Tobagonians are deeply religious, have pride in their culture and heritage
and are extremely friendly and welcoming, making Tobago a very safe island to explore.
