Icacos at the end of Trinidad

By Marika Mohammed.
It’s a whole day thing if you’re starting from the north and driving to the end of Trinidad to Icacos. There are a lot of beaches so you may want to try a stop and go method. There isn’t any malls, movie centres, or restaurants. It’s like going back to a time when Trinidad was just starting to develop.

There are benches and tables to enjoy your home cooked meals on the beaches. This is the best thing to do since food is not available around the corner. Everywhere you turn your head there is a panoramic view of the ocean, trees and hills. The air is fresh and clean and you can’t help but feel free and happy.

You can see the coast guard office and a jetty. It may look near and give off the “I can go on this and not be bothered” vibe, but it is definitely the opposite. The jetty goes really far out and the winds are much stronger than on the shore. When you look down, the water looks like it can swallow you. The beaches are all calm and clear. There are pools of water and you can see fishes swimming until the tides come up.

On my visit I saw some brave souls fishing. The men were friendly enough to answer my questions on their catch of the day. They caught all kinds of things, mostly jelly and puffer fishes and seemed excited about it.

There’s a long blue strip and the fishermen explained that it is Venezuela. My only thoughts were, look how close we are to Venezuela. Icacos is the final destination and it kind of looks like. There’s nothing screaming modern Trinidad, and I liked it. Who knows what it would look like in fifty years.
