Tobago is the little sister island to Trinidad, but has a stronger tourist industry. It is much more like the traditional image of a Caribbean island with beautiful beaches backed by green forested mountains. It used to be a very affluent plantation island, but was declared bankrupt when the sugar and cocoa plantations failed in the late 19th Century. It now concentrates on tourism, farming and fishing. The capital of the island is Scarborough and Fort King George sits on the hill overlooking the town. The scuba diving is excellent and the flora and fauna bring lots of visitors. One of the most popular beaches is at Pigeon Point, near the airport.
