By Felesha Parboo. Tyrico Beach provides a calm and serene experience because the beach is more rural than urban. It is known by many as Tyrico Bay. It is in the vicinity of Port of Spain and a few miles east of Maracas Bay.
There is a small access road that allows you to drive right onto the sand but be very careful and don’t stop while driving because you can get stuck in the sand.
While my husband and I were driving in we saw a few cars got stuck in the sand and friendly strangers decided to help them out of their situation by pushing their cars out of the sand. As there are no vendors here, I would recommend bringing your own food or purchasing something tasty to eat and drink while passing Maracas Beach. You should consider dropping by even if you aren’t staying nearby because the drive to the beach is extremely beautiful.
You can see the beach scenery as you drive along the mountains before entering Maracas Beach which can be heavily crowded. Tyrico Beach on the other hand tends to not be overly congested and extremely exciting.
This quiet, beautiful beach is great for someone who wishes to be in close proximity to the foods and amenities of Maracas Beach, but get the quiet and relaxation away from all the crowds.
Upon our visit to this beach, the water provided a chill at first swim but after a few minutes your body tends to warm up to the temperature.
The water was a green/blue colour and it was very refreshing. It is a more relaxing swim as the waves are smaller and have a less amount of people which makes it ideal for visitors with little children.
Keep in mind that bathrooms won’t be found on-site, which is something to consider if you’re bringing the kids, or plan to spend all day outside.
I loved my visit there and I enjoyed the water the most. I also got really sunburnt but it was worth it. With lots of sand and sun, this is the best of both worlds.
