Probably the most popular beach in Trinidad is Maracas Bay on the north coast, a winding 30-minute drive along the mountainside from the capital city, Port-of-Spain. Visitors enjoy the panoramic vistas of the palm-fringed beach with its energetic waves. No visit to Maracas Bay is complete without a trip to a bake and shark vendor. The delicious sandwiches are fried bread filled with seasoned fried-fillets, vegetables, fruit and an assortment of condiments ranging from sweet to very spicy.
