Shopping For Food
You can get all the basics in Charlotteville in the two small “supermarkets” and the various small shops and fruit stalls in the village.
Kosa at his Quality Restaurant makes delicious home cooked bread
Fresh fruit and veggies can be bought in the village and from a pickup truck opposite the supermarket on Fridays from 3-5 pm
The Rum Shop near the petrol station, and Lyda’s Bar sell beer and spirits.
Pennysavers in Canaan near the airport is the best for a big shop if you have a car and are going up to that part of the island. It’s cheaper than Charlotteville and has a wide range of imported food, wines etc. It’s a good idea to stop here on your way from the airport.
Internet Access, Boat Hire
Workshop Tours just opposite Sharon and Pheb’s restaurant
In the supermarket
There are no banks in Charlotteville or nearby. The only banks are at the airport and in Scarborough so its quite a nuisance to run out of cash. There is an ATM near the White House just opposite the library but it doesn’t always work.
Get plenty before arriving in Tobago, or at the airport on arrival or when in Scarborough.
The main hire car companies are available at Crown Point.
Emergencies, Doctors And Dentists
The Community Hospital of Seventh-day Adventists in Scarborough has private doctors and clinics and emergency services – 639-1115, 639- 4014, 622-1191, 622-1192, 622-3302, 622-3048
There is a public hospital in Scarborough.
Ambulance – 990
The neighbours are all local Charlotteville people. You are living in a vibrant Caribbean community. You will find people very friendly and helpful if you smile and say hello.
