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.

This beach was nice .. not the best I’ve seen but not bad either. You do have to pay to use a lounge chair but that is common on other islands I’ve visited. The beers are reasonably priced.. liked the Carib Light! The bathroom did...More

Maracas is beautiful, but can definitely get busy! Everyone heads to the beach on the weekend. There are lots of food stands - best place to get bake and shark! Very easy to get to using Maxi Taxi.

This is definitely one of the places you want to visit if you go to Trinidad. Also eat Richard's Bake & Shark while you are there!

My opinion may be biased due to fact that we were first visiting Grenada. Maracas was nowhere near a great beach; crowded, dirty with broken bottles etc. No decent restaurants/bars, but you buy stuff in bottles from kiosk kind of places. Renovation oging on, but...More

Island Experiences really showed us a cross-section of Trinidad including two beaches, Port of Spain, and a car ride through the mountains.

We swam at the Beach and what a day it was!! The beach was pretty busy but still comfortable enough to find space. The many shops and restaurants were lovely to visit for something to drink, and a little snack! We showed up after eating...More

We left when it started getting too overcrowded. The local workers were friendly, sea was ok but not "postcard" perfect, and we enjoyed the time we spent here.

Beach area still being refurbished. Good car parking area. We paid $30TT dollars for car parking (day rate). The famous Richard’s Bake and Shark was excellent. We had solo drinks with our meal.

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
