The Sealevel Guesthouse is located in Castara, a ideal place for nature-lovers, peace-seekers and families with little children. Castara is located at the north-east coast, close to the worlds first nature-preserve. For traveller who need more \actions\ like clubs, bars, shops etc. I can highly recommend Store Bay or Pigeon Point, down by the airport in the south of Tobago. The distance from Castara to Scarborough, the capital, is about 25 min. by car; to the airport about 40 minutes.
SEALEVEL GUESTHOUSE is located at the beach of CASTARA. All eight apartments have terrace, bathroom and kitchenet. Some of them have seaview. Because of the location close to the rainforest, the Sealevel Guesthouse is a good option for naturelovers and peaceseeking indiv. travellers.
The local beach is less than 30m away from the guesthouse and have fine sand and clean water and also a nice reef for snorkel and watching the marinelife.
We organize individual boat tours to secluded beaches, reefs and deep-sea-fishing and also tours to the rainforest. The guesthouse have a nice fruitgarden and plenty space to relax in privacy. We offer roomservice and laundry on request.

A hike in the rain forest of the Main Ridge offers its own special rewards. Sealevel Guesthouse in Castara is organising rainforest tours. A ideal headquarter to discover this area.Bicycles and motorbikes can be rented in the Crown Point area.

At Englishmanﾒs Bay, itﾒs easy to feel like Robinson Crousoe on an undiscovered island; Bacolet Beach, close to Scarborough, small and secluded, offers all the drama of the Atlantic.ShoppingThe shopping opportunities in Tobago are very few. It is possible to find gift items like locally made garments, handcrafts and others at hotel boutiques and also at shops in and around the Crown Point Airport.The boutiques at the entrance to Pigeon Point are good for souvenirs, including tie-dye and batik work. Sexy swimwear and trendy T-shirts can be had in this area. If upscale designer clothing is what youﾒre after, Meilingﾒs boutique at the Coco Reef Resort and Radical Designs in Scarborough retail work by some of Trinidadﾒs best known fashion names.Turtle Beach Hotel holds a craft market on Tuesdays and Thursdays, where local artisans are encouraged to show their work; and the Cotton House studio on Bacolet Street produces splendid tie-dye and batik fabrics and fashions.Eating and entertainmentEating in Tobago is a rewarding experience, from Crown Point to Charlotteville. At one end of the island, you can sample that traditional Tobago favourite, curry crab and dumplings; at the other, you can sit down to kingfish fresh from the ocean, deliciously cooked in a creole style with lots of onion, green pepper and tomato. And in the middle ﾗ well, thereﾒs everything in between.The Crown Point area has the largest concentration of restaurants, both simple and fancy, on the island; but other areas, such as Shirvan Road, are developing fast. Scarborough offers several good eating places, as well as the ubiquitous chicken-and-chips. For a truly Tobagonian experience, try the food stalls in the Scarborough Market, where hearty local breakfasts and lunches are served up, no-frills and absolutely authentic.In rural areas, small village restaurant/bars often offer satisfying home cooking. Like food, entertainment tends to be concentrated in the Crown Point area, where there is an increasing number of clubs, pubs and nightspots for those who want to let down their hair. Somewhat more decorous are the floorshows offered by the larger hotels, many of which feature regular steelband music and folk performances. In Scarborough, several pubs enliven the evening scene, particularly on Fridays.
