The small, unspoiled village of Charlotteville located 14 mi/22 km northeast of Scarborough has red, tin-roofed houses with gingerbread trim set beside a calm beach on Man-of-War Bay.

The best fishing, diving and snorkeling on Tobago are found in this area, with easily accessible snorkel sights at Pirate's Bay (about a 15-minute walk) and Booby Island. There are a handful of excellent dive shops in town.

Inland from Charlotteville is an orchid-laden primeval forest that's worth exploring. There are several guesthouses in town, making Charlotteville a good place to overnight for those taking two days to circle the island. There are approximately seven buses a day from Scarborough.
