The sister island of Tobago has been featured in a UK daily newspaper recently in a feature spread entitled, "Blissful bays and a distinct British feel in Tobago, the Caribbean's new hotspot."
The article, which appeared in The Daily Mail, praised the leisure tourism product offered in Tobago, the Ministry of Tourism said in a statement yesterday.
"Its credentials are impressive. There are direct flights from the UK; glorious white sandy beaches; the oldest protected rainforest reserve in the western hemisphere and a complete absence of imported glitz," the Mail story stated.
The feature cited Tobago's cuisine, service and hospitality, natural beauty and nationals as the top reasons to visit the sister isle, the ministry said, describing the story as "extremely favourable".
Special mentions were also made of the Coco Reef Resort and Spa and The Magdalena Grand Beach Resort's excellent service, facilities, location and staff.
"The exceptionally positive article will provide invaluable exposure and publicity to the UK travel market, since The Daily Mail's readership is close to two million per day, and its website generates 100 million views per month," the ministry said.
