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.

Situated on the eastern part of Blanchisseuse, Blanchisseuse Beach is on the North coast of Trinidad. You should think about stopping by regardless of whether you are staying nearby. Blanchisseuse Beach stands out from other beaches because it's perfect for escaping over-crowded hangouts in the town proper. Other nearby beaches on Trinidad and Tobago may provide just as many amenities as Blanchisseuse Beach, but tend to be busier since they're found in the most popular parts of town.

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.

Even if you plan to dine elsewhere, the snack bar on-site could come in handy. If available, you could also order some food from one of the local vendors who typically set up on this shoreline.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, but you may be able to find facilities at a nearby business. 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 tend to choose shores which bring guests a serene environment, then you may want to try Blanchisseuse Beach; it is located in a more rural sector of the region.
