Lovely wide open Bay. Waters rough at times. Good parking. Sandy area to play or relax on shore. Beach chairs and umbrellas available. Lifeguards posted during day. Bathroom facilities available at a small cost up to 5 or 6pm. Winding narrow roads but view is rewarding.

This is our most popular beach but we have more to see... Take a drive further down and you will meet a few others... Also if you are feeling adventurous seek a local tours there are hidden beaches inaccessible by car, you need to take a little hike but well worth it!

Short drive from the hotel and the view is spectacular! Facilities are excellent although the shower area could do with some work! Food was tasty and very reasonable.

My favorite beach in Trinidad. Beach is nice and the water is clear. Great place to hang out, swim, eat bake and drink a Stag.

The drive up through the mountains is unforgettable, the views amazing. Once then all of a sudden, there it is... beach with blue/green water. So blessed to have been able to make this visit! A definite must-see.

Takes a while to get to but once you are here it is paradise! It is a long and winding tight road but the locals drive it safely and don't let that keep you away from this beautiful beach!
