Great views form this location. Interesting to history buffs. Very crowded parking area. Try to get there before lunchtime especially on weekends or public holidays.

If you visit Toco then you should have visited the lighthouse at some point. The drive is long and there are no food/bathroom facilities. The view of the lighthouse and at lookout rock is splendid. Safe during daylight and a solid family location. Recommend that you stay overnight at a resort or beach house if you are coming from a... More

I visited the Galera Point Lighthouse on a sunday trip through the northeast. Beautiful place, nice view of the ocean and nearby rock formations, but that's about it. If you've got the time and will to visit, be sure to bring picknick goods (food and drinks), because there's no touristic infrastructure.

I would like a hand here. Yes, a perfect scenary for enjoying nature, you can even see Tobago from this point. Although, you can see dirt all around, empty cigarette boxes, empty beer bottles. Guys, come on.

There's going to be an extremely long 2 to 2 hr and a half drive to get there from the West of Trinidad; more if you're coming from Central Trinidad. The drive is only nice if you are driven, there are serious potholes, dugouts, warped and narrow roads to navigate. The beach on holidays is packed and there are a... More

My husband and I took a beautiful, three hour drive to visit the Galera Point Toco Lighthouse and we were pleasantly surprised! The place was clean and there were lovely little huts to sit under and have a picnic. The bathrooms were clean and conveniently located. But the best thing of all was the view of the coastline! It was... More

"Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time" A quote from the sign at the lighthouse that I will take with me wherever I go. The drive to the lighthouse is full of beautiful beaches and perfect photo ops. A little of a drive depending on where you are coming from. The view from the rocks... More

The ride to the lighthouse took us past several beaches that we got out to look at. The ocean view from the grounds of the lighthouse were spectacular. On the grounds of the lighthouse, we saw the first of many termite nests. There were some almond trees, but the nuts were not ripe to eat. Vultures were everywhere! It is... More

The area is great for picnics, sunbathing, and surfing. The area beaches will runnout of parking space during the holidays, such as easter weekend. The drive is very scenic as travel is thru various villages.
