This beautiful island is also known as the Bird of Paradise Island given the fact that it is as mesmerizing as paradise and it is a bird reserve sanctuary. In the year 1909, Sir William Ingram bought 26 such islands from the Dutch and these were all passed on to his son after his death. His son further gifted a part of these to the State of Tobago in a condition that it will be kept and conserved as a bird sanctuary. His wish was fulfilled and this was a place rich with a variety of most exotic birds. Out of these some could not bear with the new environment and some died later during the time when the Hurricane Flora stuck the island. Presently, the birds we see here are naturally migrated ones.
The island has a height of about 200ft from the sea level and is completely covered with forests. This is thus an ideal place for camping as well as a lookout point which gives way to the most spectacular views of the surrounding islands and the lush greenery. There are also many tours available from here that would take you along the villages of Goodwood, Pembroke, Glamorgan and Belle Garden. These villages are still not developed like the main parts of the city but this is where the beauty lies in them. The rawness and the traditional styles pull visitors till here from many parts of the country as well as others.
