Fodor's Review

On Trinidad's rugged northeast coast, Grande Riviere is well worth the drive. Swimming is good, and there are several guesthouses nearby for refreshments, but the main attractions here are turtles. Every year up to 500 giant leatherback turtles a night come onto the beach to lay their eggs. If you're here at night, run your hand through the sand to make it glow—a phenomenon caused by plankton. Amenities: food and drink. Best for: swimming; walking.
