PEECHON COVE

(North Coast, Trinidad)

Best time for this hike: May - November

 

This beach is one of the (9) beaches along the North Coast that is situated on your way to the popular Maracas Bay. The trail starts on the popular North Coast Road and we trek all the way downhill through natural forest for the next 35 minutes. The rating of this hike for the average person of reasonable fitness is (5) moderately challenging. The grade of this trail is a pleasant one all the way; especially when coming to the trek back uphill.

At the cove, for the adventurous, on the ledge where we stand which is about 35 feet above sea level, one can take the plunge into the ever inviting Caribbean Sea which actually is a favorite here. A cozy beach front that is great for a small group and the overall ambience at Peechon Cove is indeed infectious.

There is a small waterfall not far from the beach especially for those who don’t like the salt water on their skin where they can simply rinse off before the trek back uphill.
