Trip Report Relaxing on Trinidad's Beaches

Spent a few days navigating the winding North Coast Road to check out Maracas Beach and some of the lesser known spots like Las Cuevas and Paria.

The lookout just a few bends in the road before Maracas provides a splendid view on a bright day or ar sunset and is also a spot where traditional Trini sweets can be had. Maracas is nice but but the intimacy of Blanchisseuse and Paria is more suited to my style.

Getting to Paria involves leaving your car parked at Blanchisseuse and hiking along a well-marked trail. The trail passes along the tall cliffs of the Northern Range and provides some spectacular views of the ocean.

If Paria beach is the hardest beach to access, then Macqueripe beach is the easiest.

Macqueripe is west of Port of Spain, unlike the previously mentioned beaches that are North-East of the Capital City.

The waves here are much smaller than any of the beaches mentioned before and the clear sheltered bay is ideal for snorkeling.
