“One of the best beaches in the country!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

You can't go to Trinidad and NOT go to Maracas! It is a must-see! The views are gorgeous! The ride to the beach is through the Maracas hills so you get to see a little bit of the country. The water is amazing and the sands are white! Love it!! And you can't leave Maracas without trying the Bake n Shark by Richards!!

“Great White Sand Beach”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

This beach is great for relaxing and bathing. Also make sure to try out Bake 'n Shark! Great delicacy. When trying it take all the sauces. That really gives it an edgy flavour.

“Best Beach in Trinidad and one of the best in the World”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Interesting 30-45 minute scenic drive around the Northern range mountains from Port of Spain to reach this beach. Famous for "Bake and Shark" especially from "Richards". Quite well kept sandy beach, with coconut tress for shade, good for body board surfing. Although it is in a sheltered bay, water can be a bit rough at times. Many facilities such as food and drink vendors and toilets.
