Fifteen miles of beachfront on the rural, east coast of Trinidad is called Manzanilla. On the interior, flowing parallel to the beach shoreline is the Nariva Swamp which is home to a variety of freshwater animals and precious wildlife. The single road of beach and the swamp is lined with coconut palm trees and is one of the largest, local leatherback turtle nesting beaches on the island.
In 2015, the Manzanilla Boardwalk was built across 800 feet of beachfront to create a space for beachgoers to enjoy the east coast. The Manzanilla beach facility also has changing rooms, bath and toilet facilities.
