Trinidad and Tobago have many beautiful beaches, two of the more popular beaches are Maracas Bay and Las Cuevas Bay. Maracas Bay is one of the more popular beaches because of its proximity to the capital city Port of Spain. Las Cuevas is only a few minutes east of Maracas Bay. Like the name suggests there are many small caves on the beach. Just after Las Cuevas though is a hidden gem, Hundred Steps Beach. Unlike its neighbor beaches (Maracas Bay and Las Cuevas), Hundred Steps Beach is a serene and peaceful beach with calm clear water. This type of beach appeals to nature lovers, adventure seekers, and water babies. This destination is difficult to get to which is why it is so secluded.
Hundred Steps Beach is located in La Fillete. The reason for the name is that there are 100 steps that wind their way down to the beach. Part of the staircase is missing and you need to climb down a rope tied to the tree, because of this it is recommended that people travel in groups when visiting this beach. It is not easy to get to the end. If you do make it to the end though, you will see a beautiful beach is comprised of golden sand and views of the Chupara Bay.
