Las Cuevas Beach for a cool dip

Las Cuevas Beach is the only blue flag accredited beach in Trinidad and Tobago. This means that  there is access to the beach for the Disabled and the visually impaired. Las Cuevas is just a few miles after the famed Maracas Bay but the drive is worth it.

When you arrive you are greeted with a well stocked canteen at the car park area as well as modern washroom facilities. On the beach you will notice that there are numerous strategically placed lifeguard towers to keep a watchful eye on bathers.

The first thing that you will see as you settle in on the beach are the caves that give Las Cuevas its name.

River at Las Cuevas Beach

If you are the adventurous type and decide to take a stroll along the shoreline you will soon realise that it is easier said than done. The length of the beach is massive. It seems as if it goes on forever. At the midway point it is punctuated by the Las Cuevas River.

It is at this end that during the Easter vacation many people get closer to nature by utilising the area as a holiday campsite. This end of the beach is also shared with the famous and enormous Leatherback Turtle. Yes, Las Cuevas is an annual nesting ground for the Leatherback. So whenever you decide to visit Las Cuevas remember that this beach in particular is very important in terms of wildlife conservation and Eco-Tourism. So do not leave any litter behind and leave the beach cleaner than you met it.

When you get in the water the first thing you will notice is how calm it is. On most days the water is almost flat with small waves rolling in to shore. The water is also surprisingly crystal clear and teeming with fish hence the reason there are so many fishing boats and pelicans in the distance.
