Owner description: This popular beach spot fulfills the fantasy of the ideal Caribbean beach, but is just as famous for the scenic rainforest drive that must be made to reach it.

“Best beach in Trinidad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

As part of a reunion the family went to visit Maracas Bay and Beach.

The drive itself is a pleasure, with a few vista points for great pictures. Drive slowly though, some sharp curves on the way up. Maracas Bay has a beautiful beach with mountains framing the view.

In addition, Maracas Bay/Beach is known for their bake and shark too. A must try and delicious. If you are in Trinidad, this is a must do!

“One of the nicest beaches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

First of all, never have I ever seen someone give our free beach chairs to lounge on - so that was a great perk. The beach is breathtakingly beautiful. The water was warm, the sand was incredibly fine, and the view was simply amazing. We had bake and shark after our beach day at Uncle Sam's and it was delicious.

“Unique”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

Wonderful beach, went here with a few Brazilian friends last year and it was different since it was my first time at maracas beach. High tide comes in really fast so if the temperature changes while you are in the water, know high tide is coming. Other than that loved it.
