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.

Went during the week and not many people there, swimming was great and the life guard gave us a lesson on the flags and the under toes. Dont swim in line with the flags that is where the bad under toe is.

The sand was warm, the water chilled, the sun was hot. Could not want anything more. The shops that are located in front of the beach had great food. The most popular one is the bake and shark (located across the street from the beach)...More

A Very beautiful and relaxing beach located north coast. The bake and shark and other stalls on the beach makes the experience even better. A lot of camping and music makes it enjoyable for all ages. People travel to this spot just for the trip...More

Maracas Bay is quite crowded on the weekends and holidays, but is quiet during the week. You get a lot of nice views on the road to Maracas Bay. Probably the best reason for going to Maracas Bay is to enjoy the justly famous bake...More

Macqueripe, which is located in Chaguaramas. You can also do some ziplining there and visit the boardwalk.
