In truth, the beaches within immediate reach of Port of Spain are not the best around.  They aren't the worst either, so there is hope for those who want to spend as much time in the sand as possible.  The shores are nice enough and the water isn't as murky as those much further south, but they are certainly calm and swimable, so feel free to plan to jump in and take a swim. 

Pick Your Ideal Beach

You'll find several beaches to choose from, though all of them are found in neighboring areas. Just click on individual names to read a detailed article concerning that section of the coast.

Maracas Bay

Maracas Bay: The north coast of Trinidad is home to Maracas Bay, one of the more popular beaches on the island. Sit along the shore or enjoy the often rocky waters with strong current under the safety of a lifeguard.

Another location to consider is Scotland Bay. The only way to gain access to Scotland Bay is by boat.

Tyrico Bay: To get to Tyrico Bay, follow North Coast Rd for 2.5 kilometers after Maracas Beach. There you will find a small road to the left that leads downhill to the bay.

The table just below shows more information on the the beaches found nearby.
