Situated on the 750-acre, luxury Tobago Plantations Estate — a community of luxury Tobago suites and villas around the Tobago Plantations 18-hole, PGA-designed championship golf course — the Magdalena Grand Beach & Golf Resort offers everything you would come to expect from a tropical paradise getaway.
Miles of stunning white beaches, nature trails, a tropical mangrove forest and a host of water sports and activities await visitors.
But beyond the sun and fun, the Magdalena Grand Beach & Gold Resort is known for its premium dining options. In fact, its restaurants are among the most popular on the island and, earlier this year, Sous Chef Sarah Johnson took home the Bronze at the cook-off competition for the Trinidad & Tobago National Culinary team.

Guests of the resort can choose from several Tobago Meal Plans, offering full-board, half-board and all-inclusive dining, at the resort's four restaurants and three bars.
Pembois Restaurant & Terrace. It might offer a daily all-you-can-eat breakfast, but rest assured it's never the same menu twice as it changes daily, ensuring guests always have something new to tantalize their taste buds. The restaurant also offers a BBQ lunch and buffet dinner. Friday nights aren't to be missed as the restaurant's menu features authentic and traditional Tobagonian dishes and an accompanying cultural show.
Salaka Grill. Diners can have the best of both worlds at the Salaka Grill–a relaxing poolside lunch from the grill and a spectacular view of the ocean. The Salaka Grill, which offers a selection of pizza, salads, grilled fish, and meat or vegetarian dishes during the day, turns into a romantic seafood restaurant by night and offers some of the freshest seafood and pasta to be found anywhere on the island.
Kali’na. Guests looking for a sophisticated, romantic evening will find just that at Kali'na, one of the top restaurants in Trinidad and Tobago. The restaurant is known for its traditional Caribbean and Creole recipes, which reflect the island's rich culinary history, melding Indian, African, European and Asian influences. The restaurants chefs pride themselves on delivering eclectic gourmet dishes, insprired by Caribbean spices and flavors.
Robinson Crusoe. Guests hankering for a taste of home or those who just enjoy the cozy atmosphere of an English pub will gravitate to this English-style pub and sports bar. With Happy Hours daily from 5-7 p.m., the bar is a natural meeting point for guests of the resort. Shipwreck Saturdays are another favorite, when guests are invited to play games, sing karaoke and enjoy the sounds of the '70s and '80s.
Benne Cafe. Located just off the lobby, the cafe is an ideal spot for enjoying a cup of coffee and a little something sweet to eat, fresh from the resort's bakery.
