Just outside Port of Spain, Maracas Bay attracts visitors with its scenic white-sand beach surrounded by mountains. The beach is renowned for its famous huts that sell "shark and bake," deep-fried shark meat baked in dough. Relax in the thick shade of palm trees, soak up some sun, and enjoy the views of the aquamarine waters contrasting the verdant hills. Driving up to the beach, you'll encounter a panoramic viewpoint and a shop that sells traditional sweets.
