Sand Dollar apartments is located 2 minutes walk from the Atlantic coast. It's the longest beach in Trinidad, 13 miles of undisturbed beach, lined by coconut trees. The beach is scattered with sand dollars, chip chip, donkey eyes, shells, sea birds. This tends to be a very quiet stretch of beach largely undisturbed unless its a public holiday. The most beautiful time to be on the beach is just before sunrise. Always a breathtaking experience watching the sunrise across the ocean. Once its low tide the early morning finds many walkers, joggers, swimmers making use of the cooler temperatures.
Mid mornings often find fishermen coming in on their pirogues
with their nets full. Visitors are often invited to help pull the full nets in. They are often generously rewarded with a fish of their choice from the catch. Often a spectacular sight are the large black corbeaux , scavenger birds that feast on the carrion.
Mayaro is a great place for on shore fishing, fishing off the sand. A great place to bring a little cooler of drinks and a wide brimmed hat in order to sample the fruit de mer.
There are a few fresh water rivers on the stretch of beach that meet the sea during high tide. Its quite refreshing to wash the salt off on occasions.
About 6 miles , just past Mayaro junction you meet the Nariva river. Boat tours are offered for the interested visitor. There are manatees in this river as well as cayman, small alligators.
