There is something so breathtaking about the view at Galera Point. You can walk out onto the cliff and look out to see the bright colors of both the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, and you can see the rift between the two bodies of water as they clash into each other. It's quite a sight to see. I'd... More

Visit the lighthouse and the view from the cliff...is worthed. As a nature lover, this landmark of north est of trinidad is a must. Is very easy to get lost in the view of the ocean, standing on the rocks just behind the lighthouse.

The lighthouse stands at the easternmost tip of the island and the nearest point to Tobago. It is still in use and has a commanding view of the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. The view from the point is spectacular! The spray from the pounding surf rises high over the top of the rocks. Breathtaking and incomparable with any... More

Captivating views. However it is sad to see people litter the area. If the bins were filled, people should have just kept their garbage. Sadly this is not done by a number of people. The site is relatively well kept and one can only hope that the people who visit it will keep it beautiful.

The Toco light house in Trinidad one of the countries best must see places in the island. It is very peaceful and the view is magnificent. From the look out one can see an outline of Tobago.

We made the long drive from the south of Trinidad to Toco (roughly about 3 hours) to make it to this site. Enjoyable drive through winding roads and forested areas, through little fishing villages to get to this spot where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea. Very nice place to behold and get some great photos. Its rather rocky... More
