“A must visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Had a chance to visit with friends and family loved it. There is an option to bathe in the river or in the sea so if you get fed up of one you can go in the other. Did kayaking something I always wanted to do for a long time and it was really enjoyable. Highly recommend.

“Water was Rough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2014

Water was rough the day we were there. The beach was nice, but we prefer a beach where we can swim as well. There was a place where the mouth of the Marianne River enters the sea. It was a place to swim, but not really that deep. We entered at the side of the restaurant attached to the Laguna Mar Beach Hotel. It is chained off with a sign that says private property. We went under the chain, believing it was to keep cars out.

“Beautiful, but beware”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

Generally, the water gets rougher the further you move up the North Coast, and Blanchisseuse is the end of line (by car, anyway). The town is small and friendly, and the beach is lovely, but the water is often too rough for swimming, and there can be dangerous rips. Ask the locals about conditions, and keep your feet under you. No lifeguards, and not really any facilities there.

“Very nice beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

This is a very popular weekend getaway is in the North Coast, about 1,30 hours from Port of SpainIn addition you'll find hiking trails that lead to the near waterfall. Nature is beautiful but infrastructure at the beach is rather poor

“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Lovely relaxed feeling here - not like some of the bigger beaches nearer Port of Spain.
We visited in early August and were lucky to see baby leatherbacks hatching and scuttling down the beach. Amazing
