At Blanchisseuse Beach, guests have the opportunity to see the giant, endangered leatherback turtles, for this is the beach where they settle during mating season. They don't come ashore until the middle of the night but, although they leave traces, visitors are asked not to touch their nests. The beach here is gorgeous, allowing visitors to spend the day along the glorious shore.

Set on the eastern part of Blanchisseuse, Blanchisseuse Beach is on the North coast of Trinidad. You might want to drop by even if you aren't staying particularly close by. The area surrounding the beach isn't very urbanized, but that doesn't mean the beach will be boring.

How to Access The Beach

The North Coast Road on Trinidad will take guests to Blanchisseuse Beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

A perfect stretch of tan colored sand and gorgeous dark blue waters greet visitors to this tranquil and heavily secluded beach. Located at the edge of a rainforest, Blanchisseuse Beach's setting is absolutely breathtaking.

The snack bar here is the ultimate convenience if you need a cold drink, or something to hold you over until dinner. Depending on the season and time of day, you may also be able to buy some food from one of the mobile vendors who typically set up on this shoreline.

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun. Blanchisseuse Beach is a bit out of the way for island guests and therefore remains relatively secluded. Tourists come out in small numbers to enjoy the beach and watch for turtles.

If you usually choose beaches that offer those who visit a tranquil environment, then think about trying out Blanchisseuse Beach; it's hidden away in a more rural section of the region.
