Best Beaches in Trinidad

Moonstone Beach / 4.5

Calm, shallow water makes this quiet beach great for little children. Dog friendly! A few caves at the north end of the beach, but not many shells. This picturesque beach is popular with surfers and has a great view of Camel Rock.

Trinidad State Beach / 4.5

Hike the hills to see beautiful rock formations among the swirling mists. Dog friendly! The beach has a picnic area with tables, stoves, and restrooms. Great place for birdwatching and viewing the brilliant colors of the sunset.

Big Lagoon County Park / 4.5

A family beach, perfect for watching the sun go down, beach combing, and collecting ‘gems.’ Kayak rentals are available and there is a boat ramp to the lagoon. Dogs are allowed off-leash on the wave slope and on-leash on dry sand.

Luffenholtz Beach Park / 4.0

This gorgeous beach is accessible by new and improved steps from the cliffs above. Collect shells in the tide pools. Dog friendly! Excellent place to photograph the giant rock outcropping called ‘Trinidad Head.’
