As we all have certain expectations of what we'll find when visiting a place, let me say up front: Maracas Bay does NOT have the alluring blue waters you see on most postcards of the Caribbean.

When you really want to enjoy Maracas Beach, be there by 7am. At that time, you will have the sublime beauty of the beach all to yourself, the breeze breathes, rather than blows.The serenity, the cleanliness, the peace makes you think you can walk on the tranquil blue water stretching before you to infinity.

Maracas was a little crowded for my taste, but a beautiful area non the less. An added benefit are the two shops set up across from the beach sell shark and bake! A must have delicacy that is a favorite among the locals.

Picturesque beach with local food Bake and Shark across the street. Not overcrowded and well worth the trip whether you want to swim or just sit in the sun.

Just a few minutes from the capital city, the wonderful drive through the mountains of the North coast is a magnificent prelude to this amazing beach. The wide expanse of sand encourages relaxation and the warm refreshing water is soothing and therapeutic
