From Wikipedia entry for Tobago Cays:

The Tobago Cays are an archipelago located in the Southern Grenadines comprising five small islands and extensive coral reefs. The cays - Petit Rameau, Petit Bateau, Baradal, Petit Tabac and Jamesby - are all uninhabited and are a popular tourism destination.

The snorkeling at Petit Rameau was not very exciting, except for the Hawksbill Sea Turtles (Eretmochelys imbricata, german: Echte Karettschild­kröte, french: Tortue imbriquée), there were lots of them around.

I hiked up to the peak on Petit Rameau (only about 30 m (100 ft) high). You have a nice view over the cays. There were lots of lizards on that hill, including a large Green Iguana (Iguana iguana, german: Grüner Leguan, french: Iguane vert). There were are several species of doves as well as Carib Grackles (Quiscalus lugubris, french: Quiscale merle) (see Caribbean Birds).
