This popular beach spot fulfills the fantasy of the ideal Caribbean beach, but is just as famous for the scenic rainforest drive that must be made to reach it.

Not necessarily what you expect in a Caribbean beach. Big waves to play and surf in, Kingfish or shark and bake make this place hard to beat - my favourite beach in Trinidad.

Get here if you can. It is a beautiful wide beach with parking, food/drink, lifeguards, bathrooms. Lots of parking and best of all, Richard's Bake and Shark. If you've never had this, you have to. Try the sauces, they're key.

The beach is one of the most popular spots for tourists and locals. The waves are a little rough, somewhat similar to Macao beach in Dominican Republic. One of the highlights is eating a Bake and Shark from Uncle Sam's with a cold Carib!! Highly...More

My many experiences at Maracas Beach, It's simple you want to relax and enjoy the scenery without the over crowded beach-goers, visit maracas either during the week or early mornings Saturday or Sunday. It's breath taking and sooooooo relaxing, not forgetting our delicious "bake &...More

Once you are there, Maracas Bay is a fun place to spend a day. The drive there is a little harrowing for the uninitiated...about 45 minutes from Port of Spain. Once there, you will find lots of bars and places to get your "Shark and...More

Nothing built up... nothing fancy! Just hard working fisherman and locals enjoying the beautiful waters and time with family!

Nice beach, beautiful view, good food, friendly dogs, sound of music, maracas sellers, steel drums players - what else do we need?

It's a beautiful drive up to Maracas Bay. It's a large beach with lots of places to lay down and relax, swim, and take pictures. Great local food is available on the beach, and music is playing as well to entertain you.

The road is very narrow for the 2 lanes and it has many twists and sharp turns. Would highly recommend to go with an experienced local (tour guide). They also drive on the opposite side as North America so that is something... More

It's not expensive, I would compare it to a motel from about 40 years ago. Bare bones. But it's right on the beach basically. You just cross the street. But it is run down. I stayed at the Hilton in POS and that was 3 stars... More
