Trinidad: Maracas Bay Beach

Maracas Bay, located on the north side of the island of Trinidad, is one of the major tourist draws. It’s about an hour drive over the mountain ridge via a twisting road to get to this spectacular bay and a large crescent beach, considered the best in Trinidad. While a bit touristy, the beach is quite large not to be crowded and remain quite photogenic. And the must do thing here is to try the traditional Trinidadian bake-and -shark from about a half a dozen vendors along the beach.
