Castara Retreats


Unique Tobago accommodation with panoramic views of the beach, seas and sunset

Birdsong is a two-bedroom lodge, perched about 20 feet above the ground with stunning views to the beach, along the coastline blanketed in rainforest, and over the ocean towards the spectacular sunsets. The lodge sits gently on the land and relies on the natural forces of the wind to generate a cooling breeze through the wooden louvers of the windows that then channels the air up through the roof.
