The Milford Road Esplanade
The Milford Road Esplanade Accommodating indigenous small businesses Learn more

The Milford Road Esplanade was established in 2005 and offers visitors a unique slice of Tobago through the provision of indigenous goods and services. An oasis in the heart of Scarborough, its close proximity to the Scarborough port provides an ideal location for cruise ship and inter island ferry passengers. The design of the facility is in keeping with the rustic aesthetic that is unique to Scarborough with warm huts clustered together along the scenic coast for an inimitable island feel.

The Esplanade is managed by a board appointed for a period of twelve (12) months approved by the Executive Council and provides strategic oversight for the management of the facility.

There is business activity in several areas including leather craft, garment manufacturing and food and beverage. These services are available on site from the various establishments.

Additionally the rotunda on the Esplanade has been the venue for many events like:

  • Jazz on the Waterfront;
  • The Carib Great Race;
  • The gospel show – Sonfest;
  • Youth for Christ Rally;
  • Trinidad and Tobago Power Boat Regatta; and,
  • Christmas Concerts

During these seasonal activities, the Esplanade buzzes with extra activity as persons gather to create unforgettable memories. The facilities can also be rented for weddings, fairs, exhibitions and other corporate and community events.
