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.

Set 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 think about stopping by even if you are not staying particularly close by. Travelers who make a stop at this beach will be able to escape the city's bustle without sacrificing the chance to meet new people.

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, so those of you traveling with small children may want to consider another spot.

If you find that you prefer coasts that offer those who visit a tranquil environment, then think about trying out Tyrico Bay; it is back in a less urban area of Trinidad.
