Tyrico Bay

About a kilometer after the popular Maracas Bay is a little stretch of sand that the locals call Tyrico Beach. Bypass this locale, which is really still a part of Maracas Bay, and keep going another kilometer and a half to the real deal: Tyrico Bay. This area is beautiful, tranquil, and secluded, which makes for a lovely day of sunbathing and swimming.

Located in the vicinity of Port of Spain, 1.2 miles east of Maracas Bay, Tyrico Bay is on the North coast of Trinidad. You should consider dropping by even if you aren't staying nearby. The surrounding region is not overly congested, but that is not to say you won't find a fair amount of excitements at this beach.

How to Access The Beach

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.

Amenities and Ambiance

Tyrico Bay enjoys a powdering of fine grey to brown sand with a smattering of tiny pebbles here and there. With only a few trees along the edges of the beach there is not much cover from the sun, but the bright blue waters are relatively calm and a great place to cool off.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, which is something to consider if you're bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside.

Tyrico Bay provides a calm and serene experience, in part because the area surrounding the beach is more rural than urban.
