Baradal Beach Swimming in the Tobago Cays
Sitting on white-sand beaches and soaking up the sun is fine and all, but for me, I much prefer jumping into the crystal clear waters that lap against their shores. Even better when those shores are in uncommonly gorgeous locations! And possibly my favorite in the whole Caribbean is Baradal Beach.
Found on the tiny island of Baradal in the middle of the Tobago Cays Marine Park, Baradal Beach is one of the jewels of the Grenadines. This beach juts out from the island as a sandy peninsula surrounded on all sides by immaculate waters—thanks to its protected status.
But it’s what’s under the waves that make this beach even more spectacular: turtles. Lots of turtles munching on seagrass can be seen by those lucky enough to swim here. Plus fish, rays, and on my last visit, even schools of squid! See for yourself!
Clearly, Baradal Beach in the Tobago Cays is a spectacular anchorage for anyone sailing the Grenadines and well worth the day trip for anyone spending time on Bequia, Union Island, Petite St. Vincent, or any of the nearby islands in the chain.
It’s as clear as the water.
