The smaller, and disputably more beautiful, island between the twins, Tobago is known for its expansive and white sandy beaches and its biodiverse tropical rainforest. The island appears to be framed by mountains and sandy shores and has a rich history that can be discovered when visiting the 18th-century ruins of Fort King George that is now the Tobago Museum housing historical artifacts and the work of local artists.
