Manzanilla a natural beauty!

By Marika Mohammed. What I love most about Manzanilla is the views when going to the beach.  It’s a long ride, but the drive is smooth and relaxing. There’s nothing better than a drive without a pothole. One can see views from either side. The side of the hills and the lush green grass or the opposite, the roaring waves and coconut trees. Either way, the views are spectacular and the air crisp and clean.

There are points that make people stop and just take in the scenery. Looking at the deep waters and seeing the rippling currents, people tend to fish at these points. If it’s not fishing it’s crab hunting across the mangrove. It’s amazing what people will catch here. From jelly fish to red fish to puffer fish.

Manzanilla clean, convenient and safe

The beach itself I like. It’s clean, convenient and safe. There are benches for picnics and the car park is in eyes’ view. The boardwalk is a great place for pictures, looking at the ocean and taking in the salt ocean air. The water is so warm and great.  There’s always someone playing or liming on the shore. Driving back from Manzanilla is just as gorgeous as going to it. The whole thing simply looks picture perfect.

Our family trip down Manzan!

Here is an excerpt by Nerissa Hosein

Long before the days of Maracas and bake and shark, there was Manzanilla and a good pelau or macaroni pie. I grew up with big family limes down Manzanilla. We all cooked a dish and went down for the whole day. It was a fun time with all our cousins playing cricket and digging for chip chip.  Childhood was fun back then.

Skip 30 years in the future and I must admit beach limes are somewhat of a lazy day now. Who needs to cook when there’s an array of foods served in Maracas including the famous bake and shark. It surely is more laid back than my early years.

But that all changed this Summer as we ventured down to the new and improved beaches of Manzanilla. A new waterfront boardwalk and updated beach facility was a welcoming haven to my childhood years… Read more
