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.

Maracas Beach Reviews
The beach is one of the most popular sights in Trinidad. The waves are sometimes rough but the sun always hits the right spot and it is always a place to relax and reset. There are multiple food places close by and if you feel the need to check out uncle Sam's. Best bake and shark ever.
Amazing general touristy Beach. Great food and drinks. Needs an organization to manage the entire facility that understands what tourist services should look like.
