Two ways to reach this beach. Through Arima and head to directions for Asa Wright Nature Center and continue on that road or take the North Coast road . The one through Arima is scenic as you can see the canopy above your head, see spring water running down the mountain, see parrots, fields of christophene vines etc. Your choice... More

This is a unique place, there is no other place quite like Blanchisseuse. The drive is scenic and breath taking. The village is unique and the water is just beautiful. You feel as if you are in another country here. So much places to visit and enjoy from a quiet corner bar to different beaches. Some private and only locals... More

At the very end of the road up north one finds a tiny caribbean gem. On one side the impressive Atlantic Ocean Shores and opposite a Lagoon. Although there was no snacks available and the facilities weren't much inviting, it's the perfect spot for everyone who cherishes nature and quietness!

At the end of the North Coast road and a few miles further than Maracas Beach, this beach is definitely worth the extra drive. Everything you want in a Caribbean Beach. Blue water, coconut trees and no tourists.

Blanchisseuse beach is ideal for the adventurous surfer or anyone who will enjoy the rough tumbling waves that are characteristic of this beach. Access to this beach is mostly available through a daily parking fee per car at $15TT per day. There are washrooms at the private areas where patrons can use, but it is not your top of the... More

A very beautiful and scenic beach. The drive to get there is long but the trip is worth it.The Marianne river is great for children. The sea is a bit rough but the water is beautiful and not too salty. I go there often. However more attention needs to be paid to the cleanliness of the beach and its upkeep.It... More

The Marianne River rolls down to the beach and it is absolutely stunning. Hardly anyone else around, very relaxing, worth paying the few dollars for the parking, then get to use the clean (basic) shower / toilets.

Blanchisseuse beach is one of my favorites in Trinidad but be aware that you have to get up early in the morning and the road beyond Filette gets bumpy. We arrived at 0900, entrence fee was 15TT$ but you get some amenities now compared to previous years inlcuding restrooms, foot washing area and changing room. The beach area itself was... More

This beach is average but the long drive to get there is a huge turn off. Parking is to be paid. The cleanliness of the beach is not good and the water is rough. There are better beaches on the island.
