Stephen Broadbridge on Trinidad’s Best Eco Adventures

Stephen Broadbridge of Caribbean Discovery Tours tells us his favourite eco adventures: “Trinidad has such a concentrated wealth of South American and Caribbean flora and fauna. I can show people numerous ecosystems in a single day; for accessibility and convenience that’s unbeatable. The biodiversity is unparalleled in the Caribbean: there are 108 mammals, 620 butterfly species and 470+ bird species.”

Trinidad’s Best Beaches

Trinidad is unlikely to come up among “top 10 Caribbean beaches” listings – though magnificent Grande Rivière was recently tipped by British Airway’s High Life magazine as one of the 50 most beautiful in the world – but that doesn’t mean there aren’t countless beaches and activities to fill a day or weekend on a Trini beach. The four coasts are distinct, owing to the three different bodies of water which meet the coastlines. Here are some of the best and most popular choices for beach excursions in Trinidad.
