Know More about this tour

A visit to this most spectacular beach offers you the opportunity of swimming in the cool waters of the Caribbean Sea, as well as being one of the finest scenic coastal drives in the region. Probably the most relaxing way to spend a morning or afternoon in Trinidad, this tour allows for approximately 2.5-hours on the beautiful beach at Las Cuevas.

The drive will lead you through some residential areas in Port of Spain, before continuing up to the scenic North Coast Road where you can admire the stunning view of the Paramin Hills to the west with their plantations of herbs and spices, and thick rainforest to the east. Upon reaching the Caribbean Sea, you can admire the most spectacular panoramic views of the ocean. A stop at the Maracas Lookout gives you the opportunity for some photos of the surrounding bay and you can enjoy a local snack like pineapple chutney or sesame seed balls, at your own expense.

Continue along the beautiful coast passing busy Maracas Bay en route to the more sheltered, calmer Las Cuevas Bay. Enjoy the quiet waters of this 2.2km (1.36mi) beach, which is the only beach in the Southern English speaking Caribbean that has received a Blue Flag Award due to its purity and adherence to international standards.

This beach is surrounded by lush green, rainforest-covered mountains, with a sandy beach lined with small caves. Enjoy the unspoiled authentic Caribbean scenery, free of high-rise hotels and practically untouched by tourism. Due to its sheltered waters Las Cuevas beach is excellent for swimming, in contrast to the more busy Maracas Beach which usually have higher waves and more visitors.

There is a snack bar that offers simple fish n chips or chicken lunches. The fish comes from the fishing depot located on the eastern end of the beach where fresh fish is sold every day.

If time allows, you can stop at Maracas for a taste of the famous Bake and Fish sandwich.

    The trip to Las Cuevas was perfect. I had a fantastic tour guide who provided great information on the best local spots for food. As a solo traveler, this was a great way to see other parts of Trinidad where I felt safe. Definitely worth the value! Zaak was awesome!

    I loved everything about this excursion. I especially loved how small and intimate the group was and that Janel took us to the least populated beach. It was nice and peaceful and my sister and I had an amazing time. We would definitely book this excursion again. Janel was soooo awesome and a great, knowledgeable tour guide.

    Trinidad no es una isla para hacer Turismo, hay pocas playa bonita se libra Las cuevas, perosi tienes que ir a trabajar o algoasi, ellos lo intentan digo la población, encontramos con personas super amables y personas super bordes, lo siento por la gente encantadora pero yo si puedo no volvere, como he resumido no es una isla Facil.

    1st, many thanks to our Guide Zeena who made this day tour enchanting. She was punctual, knowledgeable about the Country and POS history, local culinary delicacies, rigourous, provided good advices, and above all a very good driver. Now the trip to the Las Cuevas (caves in spanish) Beach. One should prepare for a long drive up and across the Northern Range on rather narrow, meandering roads, where drivers use their horn when handling very sharp curves. Vegetation is very lush on both sides of the road with occasional driveways shooting up the side of the mountain; only 4-wheel drive can tackle these driveways. Hopefully, all that meandering will not make you dizzy. The beach is about 2.5 km long and well maintained, there are showers and change rooms but parking space is limited. You may want to avoid weekends as traffic will be infernal and parking will be an issue. On the day of our trip, the only food kiosk on site was closed so we could not taste local dishes. I would advise to go with a guide. On the way back you may want to stop at Maracas Beach to enjoy a bake and shark (flat bread with fried shark) with a cold Carib or Stag beer. The food kiosk is usually packed. After, the day tour, you should ask your guide to take you to a "doubles" or "roti" in Port of Spain. Oh yes, you have to eat these delicacies with your hands. Now, if you ask for a double with pepper, it will be quite spicy.

    The tour was great. Our guide was awesome and knew a lot. He was friendly and there when you wanted to ask questions. Our only disappointment was we ran short of money and didn and #39;t give him the tip we really would have liked.
