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.

The nicest beach I have ever visited surrounded by mountains and vegetation. A unique experience in the Caribbean!

The drive from Port-of-Spain was up the mountains through winding roads and takes about 45 minutes. Once there it is well worth it. It is a great beach, lots of waves, sun and good food. It does have changing rooms and showers which does not occur as often as you would wish at beaches in Trinidad. There was ample room to spread your beach towel and not be trampled over by lots of people. However on holiday weekends it can get very crowded so plan your trip accordingly.You must try Richard's bake and shark. It is very tasty, especially all the sauces which you can add to the dish and it was not expensive. However there were quite a few stray dogs which spoiled the venue as we ate in the open next to the beautiful beach.

This is a beach that tourists are brought too and also the natives. Great water. Can be a little rough. Shark and bake is a food delicacy that is in demand and this is the best place to get it. Tents can be rented.
