Trinidad and Tobago Beach
...on islands of contrast, where no two beaches are alike
"Which is your favorite Trinidad and Tobago beach?"
That's a difficult question to answer because the diversity they offer is unique in the Caribbean. Some Trinidad beaches are great for swimming, others for beachcombing. Some are ideal for surfing, while still others are renowned for their scenery, as seen in these Trinidad pictures. Some ribbon along for miles and other fit snugly into wild, secluded coves.
Selecting your favorite Trinidad and Tobago beach depends on what you plan to do while you're there. Join us as we explore some of the great beaches these islands offer. And when were through we'll invite you to answer the question, Which is your favorite beach? So let's begin...
Marvelous Maracas Bay
Of all Trinidad beaches, Maracas is the popular favorite and the closest to the capital, Port-of-Spain. This idyllic Caribbean beach, lined with coconut trees and surrounded by mist-shrouded mountains lies nestled in the lazy crescent of Maracas Bay.
As far as Trinidad beaches go, Maracas Beach is one of the best for swimming, body surfing and simply enjoying the mesmerizing waves. Here are a few Maracas Beach photos we thought you might enjoy.
While the beauty and charm of this tropical beach are sufficient to rank it among the best beaches in the Caribbean, Maracas Beach Trinidad further promises a gastronomical delight of local renown that awaits your taste buds beachside.
Manzanilla and the Captivating Cocal
Imagine mile upon mile of undeveloped, secluded Trinidad beach to explore. There are various points along Manzanilla Beach where you'll stand alone, like a marooned pirate in an Hollywood movie, your back against a wall of uncountable coconut trees.
As you look eastward, out across the Atlantic Ocean, you can picture Christopher Columbus being blown toward you on his voyage of discovery, by the very same Trade Winds that buffet this sandy coastline today.
This ribbon of sand is a beachcomber's paradise, a tropical beach that cries out to be explored. Walk with us along this sandy highway, where the only traffic we'll meet are prehistoric looking mudskippers, dainty shore birds, and ghost crabs out shopping for lunch; and where we'll find donkey eyes, sea glass and other beach treasures.
Perfect Pigeon Point
Pigeon Point Beach Tobago, is one of those Caribbean beaches that's been featured on so many travel magazines it feels familiar. It's so photogenic that you will enjoy taking your own Tobago beach photos.
The barrier of Buccoo Reef guards this Trinidad and Tobago beach where calm, aqua-blue waters gently lap upon coral sands. No matter what you plan to do here - soak up the sun, snorkel or swim in the pool-like water - the atmosphere is perfect for romance and relaxation.
Idyllic Store Bay
Store Bay is a diminutive, picture-perfect, coral sand beach that's only a 5-minute walk from the airport. If it's aqua blue water, tanning chairs and umbrella drinks, or easy access to souvenirs, water tours and good restaurants you desire... then pull up a chair and rub on the sun screen, because you've found your perfect beach.
Store Bay's calm, clear waters make it superb for swimming, snorkeling, and if you desire more, there's a glass-bottom boat leaving for Buccoo Reef almost every half hour on a busy day. Store Bay is the ideal, activity-packed tropical beach for the confirmed tourist.
The London Sunday Times ranked this Tobago jewel, just off the beaten path, as one of the top beaches in the Caribbean.
Pretty beaches like Englishman's Bay on Tobago's Caribbean coast are a treasure. The perfect crescent of gleaming sand, and crystal blue waters of this quiet, romantic beach make it one of the one of the best Trinidad and Tobag beaches to head for when you want to get away from the crowds, or just enjoy some spectacular snorkeling.
Blanchisseuse is a mysterious, changeable and often secluded beach, far from weekend crowds. It's a great Trinidad and Tobago beach for Boogie boarding, body surfing and on stormy days a little serious surfing. It's also a great place to relax and get away from weekend crowds. Blanchisseuse is a private-party kind of tropical beach for those who seek a little spice in their life.
This is the wild, rocky North Coast where you'll be glad you found Blanchisseuse because... those who visit, make it a point to return, and those who return, make it a habit...
Trinidad beaches are like its people, diverse. There are the caramel-colored sand beaches of Matelot and Grande Rivere where giant leatherback turtles lay their eggs. There are wild stretches of Balandra where the sea seems angered by the very presence of the shore, and the spectacular beach scenery of Guyamara, Toco and San Souci...
Then there's the mystic seclusion of Trinidad beaches like Paria, for those prepared for a long drive and a stimulating hike; and the quiet calm of the Boca Islands, off Trinidad's northwestern tip, for those interested in a short boat ride to visit Chacachacare and a unique Trinidad beach.
