Beaches, Beaches Everywhere
When it comes to choosing a destination to go swimming in Trinidad, the best beaches are hard to tell from the ordinary as Trinidad has a spectacular coastline all round the island.
Salibea Bay is on the north east coast of Trinidad and it is the perfect representation of what beaches in Trinidad have to offer. The water is a gorgeous shade of turquoise, the sand is soft and golden and the shoreline is lined with palm trees that provide a nice opportunity to escape the sun during the hottest hours of the day. There is coral a little bit out to sea too for some beautiful snorkelling.
Also on the north of the island, Maracas Beach is another wonderful destination wher you can swim in pristine water until your heart is content. Maracas is a convenient one hour drive from the capital, Port of Spain, and tourists can be indulge in a local Trinadian dish called Bake and Shark in a number of stalls along the beach.
On the tip of the south west coast of Trinidad, Columbus Bay is a nice beach which is not as touristy as the two mentioned in the north. Named after Christopher Columbus when he pulled in here on his famous journey to the Americas, Columbus Bay stretches for 3 miles and you may never again swim in a more historic location.
