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 might want to drop by whether or not you are staying nearby. The beaches on Trinidad and Tobago aren't usually known for their peace and quiet, but Tyrico Bay is a little bit further from the crowds, making it a good choice for travelers who'd prefer to stay out of the busiest areas.

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.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, but you may be able to find facilities at a nearby business.

If you happen to favor beaches that bring visitors an idyllic place to escape, then maybe head on over to Tyrico Bay; it's found in a more natural sector of Trinidad.
