Pigeon Point is also known as Pigeon Point Heritage Park . Pigeon Point Heritage Park (PPHP) is often considered Tobago’s most beautiful beach and is home to the famous thatch-roofed jetty which has become an internationally recognised signature of Tobago. The resort includes a long stretch of white sand beach with warm aquamarine waters. There are excellent beach facilities such as bathrooms, showers and beach-chair rentals as well as bars and a restaurant. Tourist amenities include souvenir and water-sports shops.
Unfortunately, the peninsula has been the subject of major controversy over recent years after the property was bought by Dr. Anthony Sabga, founder and chairman of the Trinidad-based Ansa McAl conglomerate. In early 2005 the government promised to purchase the property; by compulsory purchase order if necessary. A deal was struck and the peninsula became the property of the Tobago House of Assembly (THA) in late 2005 at a cost of $106 million TT dollars.
The entry fee to PPHP is set at TT$18 (US$3/£2) per person (children aged 6–12 half-price and children under 6 free).
