North Shore, Trinidad

Trinidad and Tobago's insider take:

Trinidad's Northern Range, where El Cerro del Aripo is the island's tallest peak at 3,000 feet, is the backdrop to the island's Caribbean shoreline. You'll find beautiful beaches, gnarly surfing, and, during the summer season, mammoth leatherback turtles coming ashore to nest at night. Closest to Port of Spain, Maracas Bay's wide stretch of tawny sands along the north shore is most popular. It's also known for its shark-and-bake shacks. Nearby, Las Cuevas and Blanchisseuse bays also make spectacular beach destinations.
