Ancon Beach, Trinidad

3.8
#1 of 6 in Parks in Trinidad
Walk the soft white sands of Ancon Beach, replete with a clear calm ocean and nearby beach bars providing snacks and refreshments. Swim out into the water with a snorkel to observe tropical fish, or seek shade and enjoy a good book beneath the abundant palms. Resorts at one end of the beach provide entertainment and a busy atmosphere, but you can head down the long beach to find a peaceful spot to relax amid peaceful surroundings.

    Significantly less than the beaches North of the island (Cayo Jutías...). Here, it is much less clean, taken by storm by groups not always very class, booming music, big boat offering trips at sea, sellers traveling, and - the icing on the cake - full of algae in the water to a point that it was impossible to swim there. It was certainly the case when we were there, it seems that this happens not every day. Between the playa Ancon and La Boca, a few coves between rocks quieter, but not sandy beach.

    Unfortunately they recommended us closer from Trinidad, it is only 11 km away, to an afternoon of beach. It is sickening how the Cuban people behave in this beach. Dejan bottles, beer cans, tubs of ice cream and even diapers left in the sand. In the photo I took that afternoon you can see several cans lying on the sand. They leave waste to its around seem normal, they live this way, without education, but for any non-Islander is a disgusting. If you're not Cuban do not go there, it is a very bad experience.

    Only a short journey from Trinidad, and easy to access on the tourist bus. However, it is very busy. Also, the sad is not as soft and see not as clear as the cayo beaches, especially north coast. Limi...  more »
