We hiked this from the bridge and didn't encounter any other people. The beach is clean and has plenty of rocks and shells to sift through. Going further to the Paria Falls was pretty, though the trail abruptly ends in the river! The hike doesn't have crazy ups and downs, so it's gentle on the legs despite being near 13 miles round trip.

I am shocked that this is not a top 10 or top 5 thing to see/do in Trinidad, but I guess that is partly why you won't see many tourists, if any, there or along the hike. The hike to this waterfall takes about 7-8 hours round-trip, depending on fitness level. It can surely be done in 4-6 but only for experienced hikers. If you are one of those tourists that never hikes and thinks they can do it without a problem, do everyone a favor and work out your leg and hip muscles several times in the weeks leading up to this trip so you have some form of preparation for it. I brought along 3.5 liters of water and went through all of it by the time we reached the beach (half an hour before the falls). Thankfully there is a pipe that spews drinkable spring/mountain/rainforest water that let us refill every bottle we had - in the end I drank about 8 liters of water on this hike and two coconuts that were cut from one of the palm trees along the beach. Bathrooms - no, only nature. Water - minimum, bare minimum, 2 liters that you will then refill at the beach Start time - we started the actual hike at 9a.m. - way too late for a tropical climate. Ideal start time is 6a.m. but it takes about 90 minutes to get there from Port of Spain. So ideally leave the hotel at 6a.m. and don't stop anywhere along the way (bring prepared food with you for lunch) and start between 7:15a.m. and 7:30a.m.. Otherwise the heat and humidity will just bare down on you for a lot longer. Apparently, the hike is rated a 6/9, so a bit strenuous but not so much for those who have hiked before. *Ask for Sean as the hiking guide, he was an all-star! He works with Hike Life Adventures on here/social media.

I love the falls and beach combo and something about Paria is magical! I have yet to hike as we usually got by boat but hopefully soon.

This beach is absolutely gorgeous. It has a long beach with literally white sand. There are many beautiful gorges that will make awesome photos. The waterfall is another highlight that is not very far to walk to. The choices to get here are either by hike or a boat. ( If you are willing to take the hike it can be a bit challenging if you are not accustomed to this type of activity) If you will like to take a boat, you can do so by the fishing village village in Blanchisseuse. An important thing to note is the condition of the sea at the time you decide to go as the waters could be very rough at times which could be a frightening experience. It is well worth spending the day here, basking in the sun, having a picnic and simply enjoying nature and the picturesque sights. The waterfall is best recommended to bathe though as the beach tends to have rip tide and therefore not very safe. If you will like to see the leather back turtles this is one of the best beaches as they come up by the hundreds on this particular beach to lay during the period March to September.
