Maracas Bay Tours

38 reviews

Maracas Bay lies at the end of a scenic mountain drive from Port of Spain. As you descend to the coast you get glimpses of a perfect natural bay fringed with dazzling white sands and swaying palms, all of which readily indicate why this is Trinidad's most popular beach. 

The hypnotic roll tumbling of blue-green waves make this a great place for paddling, but if you insist on more strenuous activity there is surfing, diving and walking trails in the surrounding rainforest.

The area is known particularly as the home of 'Bake and Shark' (battered shark in fried bread). "Richard’s" is the original and most famous of the vendors, but numerous huts along the beach sell this unique local delicacy.

Practical Info

Maracas Bay is on the north coast of Trinidad, about 45 minutes’ drive from Port of Spain. If you find the shore there too crowded, nearby beaches such as Las Cuevas, Tyrico or Blanchisseuse make great alternatives. The surf can sometimes be dangerous so steer clear of areas marked by red flags.
