A Birder's Paradise:
The Ultimate Guide to Bird Watching in Tobago

The 750-acre Tobago Plantations Estate, home to Shandison Luxury Villas, includes 5 manmade lakes and ponds that teem with lilies and waterfowl. Frigate Birds soaring over the beach, Pelicans diving into the lagoon, and Grey and White Herons nesting in the mangrove all take flight and refuge within the vegetation that borders the paths and roads, making them very easy to spot with the naked eye. The brackish fishponds offer a wide variety of nourishment for the water birds that call them home, with seasonal ducks and other birds visiting daily.


Optimal visiting times to the ponds are early mornings, 5.30 a.m. to 7:00 a.m., and to the lakes later in the afternoon, anyone would be fortunate to see the return of the Herons, 5.30 p.m. to 6.30 p.m., a sight you really won’t want to miss.
