Just outside Port of Spain, Maracas Beach 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 Beach and other Port of Spain attractions into our Port of Spain tour planning site, and watch your holiday take shape.
