Man-O-War Bay offers some of the best swimming and snorkeling in Tobago. There are two small reefs, as well as two larger within the bay. One is Booby Reef that is within swimming distance of beach. The other is Pirate's Bay reef. Pirate's Bay is one of the the most beautiful and unspoiled beaches in Tobago. It takes about half an hour to walk out to Pirate's Bay from the village of Charlotteville. The snorkeling and the swimming there are fantastic all year round. The dry season, between February and August, is the best time of year for snorkeling in Man-O-War Bay. By then, the heavy rains from the wet season have ceased and the waters are calm and clear.
