This popular beach spot fulfills the fantasy of the ideal Caribbean beach, but is just as famous for the scenic rainforest drive that must be made to reach it.

Dear government please finished the shanty town you built on the beach - sorry left half ready! They have ruined this amazing beach with these half ready buildings.

Maracas Beach was not easy to get to, but it was worth it in the end. It was a very picturesque place. At the time we went in January on a weekday, it wasn't busy, and the beach is long and wide anyway. The waves weren't huge and dangerous, which made them fun to play in. Eating "bake and shark"...

Great beach, the best bake n shark on the island. Scenic drive to and from the beach, other nearby beaches accessible, adequate parking and amenities.

This is a nice beach in a mountain cove, in fact it's a beautiful mountain road to get there. You must try the shark bake sandwich with all the condiments

The visit to Maracas can be a trilling experience both getting there and being there, The route to this wonderful attraction needs an attentive, experience and "sober" driver but it will worth it. You can enjoy T&T famous "bake and shark" and the white sand beach. You are advised to heed the instructions of the lifeguards .

After a winding road through the mountains, stop off at the look out and enjoy local treats. Then proceed down to the famous Maracas Bay in Trinidad... Enjoy basking in the tropical sun, build sand castles and of course the sea.... The fresh air breeze and friendly faces... And for lunch, enjoy the local Bake and Shark with a buffet... More

Overrated noisy crowded beach that has run down facilities. Drive a little further to Las Cuevas in much nicer.

It is hard when you come from Jamaica to get excited about other beaches, but this was good, and it was close to the city. The stalls selling the Shark and Bake and other wonderful local food are a welcome change from experiences at other informal beaches in Kingston.

I had a good time in Maracas Bay. The sun loungers were cheap to rent and the local Bake 'n' Shark street food is especially tasty. However, the traffic is atrocious and the toilets/changing areas that you need to pay for leave a lot to be desired, like doors in some instances.

The drive to Maracas Bay is awesome, tiny winding roads, with look out points from the top of the mountain and even places where you can drink fresh spring water...otherwise, the facilties at the beach are pretty awful, there are no lockers, and the bathrooms are absolutely disgusting. The beach is nice...but you can find better! There are plenty of... More
