The Saint Giles Islands are small islands off the northeast tip of Tobago. It is the northernmost point in Trinidad and Tobago.

The main island is very steep sided, and hosts tropical dry forest and wind-swept littoral scrub.

At least five species of reptiles have been recorded for the island. One is a snake - Boddaert's tropical racer (Mastigodryas boddaerti), and four are lizards - Green iguanas, Turnip-tailed geckos, Ocellated geckos (Gonatodes ocellatus), and an unidentified species of skink in the sub-family Mabuyinae.
