Maracas Bay, Port of Spain

#Water Body, #Beach, #Must See
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. Put Maracas Bay and other Port of Spain attractions into our Port of Spain tour planning site , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • A perfect day at the beach with family friends food drinks. Chairs and umbrellas for rent and coconut trees galore.  more »
  • This beach is awesome!!! The beach is beautiful but you must pay attention to how far you go into the beach because the current is strong and pulls you in further quickly. You must also pay attention ...  more »
  • Highly recommend bake n shark! And make sure to bring sunscreen as it gets intense midday. A cooler full of beers could be good but the shops also sell a local beer called Carib for only $12 TT dollar...  more »

  • A scenic beach on the north coast of Trinidad, perhaps the most popular on the island for visitors and residents alike. It is manned by a compliment of life guards to ensure the safety of all. The coconut trees offer shade from the sun to those who do not want to 'tan' their bodies.
  • Everytime I'm in Trinidad I visit this beautiful beach.
  • Most popular beach in Trinidad (Store Bay wins the contest in Tobago). Scenic and lively, but there are much, much better ones to the left and right of this one in the North Coast. Explore further.
  • One of the best beaches in Trinidad I recommend this beach for tourists!

Where to stay in Port of Spain

The western end of Port of Spain offers the best selection of accommodations, with a range of chain hotels and private vacation rentals catering to guests of all tastes and budgets. Woodbrook and Newtown serve as the most popular suburbs to stay, although neither is on the coast.
