“beware the sandflies”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

Seven kilometres beyond maracas beach this beach is a very pleasant and calm. There are plenty of facilities. The waters are calmer but beware of the sandflies if you react badly. Don't let thstv put you off, it is a great place to swim.

“Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

While I am usually hotel bound or in meetings in Port of Spain or Marabella while on business in Trinidad, finally a free morning presented itself and I was able to take the opportunity to tour this incredibly beautiful coastline.

Of the three beaches my outstanding driver, Surin (+.868.681.0879) provided escort and security that morning, Las Cuevas ranked number two. However, that rating positively falls into the outstanding category. Las Cuevas is quiet. The sand and scenery is beautiful. There are no waves.

“Pretty Beach”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

Went on a Monday. There were lots of people, but not as many as weekends. It was a pretty tame beach. However, the coconut trees on Maracas Beach make Maracas Beach a more picturesque beach.

“Calm waters and nice setting”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

Located approximately 10-15 minutes past Maracas Beach, Las Cuevas is a very nice beach with calmer waters and smaller crowds. There's a parking facility with showers and bathrooms and vendors/food available for purchase. The beach is relatively flat and the waters more suitable for small children. Keep in mind though, there is little shade unless you setup far back from the edge of the water. Just be sure to use sunscreen and this won't be a problem. Las Cuevas is bigger than Maracas but the smaller crowds make it a viable option anytime.
