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.

We visited Maracas Bay as part of the eco cultural tour. It's a bit of a drive from Port of Spain but you get to see a little of the residential side of Port of Spain along the way. It was raining on the day...More

Maracas Bay is a beautiful crescent shaped stretch of beach with nice, occasionally high waves. The waves make it difficult for very young ones, but more capable swimmers enjoy diving under or jumping above them. Excellent local food choices.

Great beach you must stop across and see beautiful view. And the beach is hidden in the mountains of Trinidad . You stop across the street and have a name and shark sandwich it to die for

We had a nice time . It's important to go early . Beach was clean we enjoy bathing . The beach chairs and umbrella were so expensive. The facilities needs serious work . It's a main spot for tourists and could be a lot better.

Macqueripe, which is located in Chaguaramas. You can also do some ziplining there and visit the boardwalk.
